Annotation of this paper is available
The evolution of seal design and material is discussed.
Modern seal designs promote heat dissipation and have molded lips that provide dimensional control.
Many modern seal applications are operating at higher speeds and temperatures than they did ten years ago. Seal materials must be upgraded to survive at elevated temperatures.
