Low Friction, Low Stiction Gimbal/Pod/Pan-Tilt Seals

Gimbal seals protect sophisticated radar, targeting, and imaging equipment in harsh environments. Some of these environments occur in aircraft, shipboard, and land-based applications. In this document from Bal Seal Engineering, we examine which features and benefits are necessary in effective gimbal seals.

Specifically, we’ll take a look at how the Bal Seal® spring-energized seal helps you achieve the elusive balance between friction and sealing effectiveness, and how our seal combines low friction materials, a canted coil spring energizers, and custom jacket profiles to improve accuracy and reliability in gimbals, pods, pan-tilt systems, and other demanding rotary/oscillating applications.
