Eclipse Channel seals are thin walled sealing elements, designed to be installed in standard O-Ring glands. The main benefit of using a channel seal is to provide a low friction interface in dynamic applications where stick-slip behavior cannot be tolerated. As thinly machined elements, Channel Seals are easily installed, but should only be specified in moderate duty applications. This design can be employed in shifter mechanisms to keep grease in and exclude contaminants. Channel Seals can also be found in assemblies that must move incrementally with small input forces such as fuel control valves and pneumatic actuators.
