Seals and Sealing System Design of Actuation Systems in Military and Commercial Aircraft

This half day seminar presents an overview of seals and sealing system design for military and commercial aircraft. It is aimed to provide engineers having some previous actuator and control valve design background with an understanding of the general hardware groove standards, standard parts for static applications and how seal designs and sealing systems can be best used in dynamic reciprocating and rotary applications. Information will be provided regarding seal material and fluid compatibility, friction drag, expected wear rates depending on operating conditions and duty cycle, hardware surface finish and topography. Also included will be information on seal installation procedures and potential pitfalls to avoid.    

What Will You Learn

By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Identify the standards relevant to seals and seal systems
  • Summarize key characteristics of dynamic reciprocating applications
  • Summarize key characteristics of rotary applications
  • Evaluate seal material characteristics and proper applications
