The double-acting Turcon® AQ Seal® 5 incorporates an elastomer Quad-Ring® and is energized by two O-Rings to improve sealing behavior. It demonstrates excellent results in applications requiring media separation, e.g fluid/fluid or fluid/gas. Works well in higher pressure applications and has a higher sliding speed compared to the AQ Seal®.
The Turcon® AQ-Seal® 5 is a patented development of the proven standard Turcon® AQ -Seal® . The seal profile of the Turcon® ring has been redesigned on both the dynamic and static sealing surface. Two O-Rings are used to energize the seal instead of one.
The AQ-Seal® 5 combines the benefits of a lowfriction Turcon® slipper seal with the high sealing characteristics of an elastomeric seal by incorporating a limited foot print X-Ring Seal in the dynamic sealing face. This optimizes leakage control while minimizing friction. The particular characteristics of the AQ-Seal® 5 are the special seal profile with a defined seal edge and the use of two O-Rings as energizing elements to optimize the pressure profile and to reduce the force of attack at gas permeability.
