The Turcon® Glyd Ring® II is a double-acting, rod or bore, bi-directional seal for rotary applications that have a combination of high surface speed and pressure. It consists of a permanently bonded elastomer energizer and a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) based seal ring to form a one-piece seal. It can be manufactured from a wide variety of material combinations, including elastomer and PTFE based compounds.
Turcon® Glyd Ring® II offers outstanding stability in the gland hardware. Its one-piece bonded construction gives an increased service life by preventing the seal’s PTFE based sealing ring from spinning with the shaft against its elastomer energizer. In addition, the all-in-one piece makes it ideal for automated assembly by eliminating the possibility of installing the wrong size elastomer or seal ring.
