Inflatable Seals

  • Inflatable Seals with metal inlet valves

Exactseal stands at the forefront of rubber product manufacturing, with a specialized focus on producing innovative inflatable seals. Our Inflatable seals are a type of gasket or seal that uses air pressure to create a secure and reliable barrier between two surfaces. They are made from a flexible, elastomeric material, such as silicone, rubber, or polyurethane, and are typically inflated using a hand pump, air compressor, or other pneumatic source with a constant pressure regulator and relief mechanisms.

Our inflatable seals are designed to cater to a wide array of applications, providing superior performance and adaptability.

Diverse Inflatable Seals Portfolio: We take pride in offering bespoke manufacturing of inflatable seals to meet varied industry needs. Our commitment to precision engineering and cutting-edge technology positions us as a reliable partner for industries with unique sealing requirements and our offerings include:

Inflatable Seals by Manufacturing/Construction:

  • Fabric Reinforced Inflatable Seals: Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, our fabric-reinforced seals are engineered to provide enhanced strength and durability. The integration of fabric reinforcement adds an extra layer of robustness, making these seals ideal for applications requiring higher tensile strength and resistance to wear and tear.
  • Non-Fabric Reinforced Inflatable Seals: Our non-fabric reinforced inflatable seals showcase versatility in design and application while providing cost effectiveness. These seals are tailored to provide effective sealing solutions without the use of fabric reinforcement. With a focus on flexibility and adaptability, they are well-suited for applications where a softer and more pliable sealing solution is required.

Inflatable Seals by Expansion Type & Direction:

  • Axial: These seals maintain a fixed centerline diameter but inflate outwards, creating a reliable face seal perpendicular to the centerline. These seals combine controlled expansion with unwavering inner strength. They adapt to the surface they encounter, forming a reliable face seal without compromising on size or precision.
  • Radially Outward: These seals are a unique type of closure that uses air pressure to create a tight, customizable seal. Unlike traditional seals that rely on springs or compression, these inflatable versions expand outward from a central channel, filling any gaps and conforming to uneven surfaces. The seal inflates through an air inlet valve (typically installed into a channel with the inside diameter (ID) as the fixed dimension), expanding a flexible bladder housed within a fixed groove. As the bladder expands, its outer surface presses against the opposing surface, creating a leak-proof seal. The seal can be inflated to varying pressures, adjusting the sealing force and accommodating different gap sizes.
  • Radially Inward: A radially inward inflatable seal is a type of seal that uses pressurized air to create a tight seal against a surface. Unlike traditional outward-expanding inflatable seals, these seals expand inwards, making them ideal for applications where space is limited or where the seal needs to conform to the inner surface of a curved object.

Inflatable Seals by Geometry:

We manufacture Inflatable seals in numerous shapes and sizes but at a high level, they can be categorized as circular, rectangle/square, straight, and U-shaped based on how they are deployed into their final applications. Each of these categories of inflatable seals has further variety in cross-section shapes like dovetail, ribbed dovetail, crown, stud top, tabletop, oblong, etc as well as additional features like the footless, snap-in fit, slot-in fit, screw-in fit, etc.

Versatility in Application: Exactseal’s inflatable seals find application across a diverse range of industries, showcasing their adaptability and reliability. From industrial machinery to automotive applications, these seals are designed to provide effective and efficient sealing solutions. The versatility of our inflatable seals lies in their ability to conform to varying shapes and sizes, ensuring airtight and watertight seals in dynamic environments.

Our commitment to quality assurance is central to our manufacturing processes, with rigorous testing ensuring that each product, including inflatable seals, meets or exceeds industry standards. Additionally, our dedication to environmental responsibility is evident in our exploration of eco-friendly materials and sustainable manufacturing practices, aiming to minimize our ecological footprint.
