T-seals are double acting seals that are available in both piston and rod profiles. A standard O-ring groove can accommodate a standard T-seal. They can accommodate higher pressures depending on material selection. The design is also considered to be more stable than an O-ring, as the T-seal shape helps to eliminate rolling or spiraling issues.
Our standard T-seals are composed of a nitrile sealing element and two split nylon back-up rings. A popular combination for added chemical resistance is our Viton™ and PEEK T-seal materials.
