"Assists users, developers, researchers, and manufacturers in the design, selection, development, and application of seals and sealing systems for fluids."
Introduction to fluid sealing technology; terminology and concepts; polymeric materials; sealing mechanism of elastomer seals; flow in thin films - incompressible; flow in thin films -compressible. Part 1 Rotary seals - rubber, plastic: rotary lip-seals; rotary lip-seals for pressure. Part 2 Reciprocating seals: hydraulic seals; pneumatic seals; piston seals of internal combustion engines and compressors. Part 3 Soft packings - rotary and reciprocating: compression packings. Part 4 Mechanical seals: mechanical seal principles; mechanical seal design; mechanical seal materials. Part 5 Non-contact shaft seals: throttling seals for liquids; clearance seals for gases; gas film seals; centrifugal seals; screw-seals; slingers and collecting labyrinths for liquids; magnetic fluid seals. Part 6 Static seals, bellows and diaphragms: hermetic seals; gasketed joints - structural aspects; gaskets in flanged joints; static seal applications.
