This is a precision molded seal combining a U-Cup with an O-Ring. Under zero and low pressure, the O-Ring pressurizes the lips of the U-Cup allowing it to seal. As system pressure increases, the O-Ring is energized and forces the lips outward, changing its behavior from a squeeze type seal to a traditional lip seal. Loaded U-cups can vary in temperatures based on material and can also vary in pressures based on the design.
Our styles range from standard and deep straight lip to beveled lip.
