These inflatable seal profiles are only a representation of some of the typical profiles used and are not representative of all of the special profiles that have been created over our 40 year history. Seal Master inflatable seals are custom engineered and manufactured for your specific application and the profile is determined by the requirements of your application
Snap-in type inflatable seal profiles utilize a dovetail-designed base that enables the seal to simply "snap" into a matching retainer groove. The retainer groove provides support and protection for the seal. Installation and replacement is quick and easy.
Bond-in type inflatable seal profiles take advantage of an easily machined or fabricated straight-wall groove. This permits the seal to be positioned and bonded into place.
The encapsulated inflatable seal profile allows for the seal to be "captured" in a groove by securing bar stock over the edges of the groove. The same effect is realized by trapping the seal in a specially formed channel. This approach employs an inflatable tube actuating a solid rubber shoe to the striking surface.
The fasten type inflatable seal represents a versatile system that utilizes a variety of metal fasteners such as bars, pins and clips, which can be tack welded of screwed down to the mounting surface.
The recessed grooved type inflatable seal, generally used with smaller diameter seals in a radially in or radially out mode, holds the seal in place by its own tension or force. When larger diameters are required, studs can be used.
