Achieve Higher Pressure with Fabric Reinforced Inflatable Seals

November 29, 2021

Inflatable seals form an airtight barrier between a mounting and a striking surface, ensuring contamination-proof, leak-proof sealing. Applications for inflatable seals vary across a range of industries from nuclear energy, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, and transportation to food and aerospace. In some cases, fabric reinforced inflatable seals are needed where applications involve extreme pressure and heavy loads.

Why Use a Fabric Reinforced Inflatable Seal?

In many applications, inflatable seals are exposed to a wide range of temperatures, speeds, containtments, and rotating parts. The addition of fabric helps to increase the amount of pressure by which the seal can effectively operate.

Fabric reinforced inflatable seals are commonly used under these conditions:

  • High working pressures
  • Extremely heavy loads
  • Repeated uniform operations

Fabric reinforcement adds to the inflatable seal’s overall strength and resilience. With enhanced reinforcement to the seal, the components are fully capable of maintaining or increasing internal pressure as needed for the application.

Types of Fabric We Use

Seal Master offers fabric reinforced inflatable seals that can handle even the most demanding and difficult sealing challenges. The fabric bond acts as a spring to protect the inflatable seal from extruding into gaps when under pressure.

We use a variety of fabrics for sealing applications, including:

  • Dacron
  • Kevlar®
  • Normex®
  • Nylon

Fabric Reinforced Seals for High Pressure Applications

Fabric-enhanced inflatable seals offer greater durability and shape for handling extreme pressure and heavy loads. You’ll experience consistent, long-lasting results in any application where a fabric reinforced inflatable seal is used. So whether you need to move objects along a conveyor belt or seal off one environment from another, we custom engineer what you need.
