For over 100 years, seals have been universally recognized as a viable solution for retaining or separating fluids and gases, along with eliminating the ingress of contamination into the operating environment. This publication offers technical information outlining progress in the development of sealing designs, processes, and techniques. Contents include: engine valve stem seal, oil leakage control technology and performance; development of compact thermoplastic CFJ boat; spiral wound gaskets in automotive exhaust applications; development of a computer aided gas sealability test system; and a method for determining the load-deflection curve of an elastomeric gasket.
