Torlon and PEEK Polymer Labyrinth Seals Choice?
When selecting the material for a labyrinth seal to be used in a reciprocating compressor, thermal properties can be a major concern. Since plastics behave differently from metals, there are certain thermal properties that you need to consider when using a thermoplastic labyrinth seal. In this article, we are going to look at four key thermal properties you need to investigate, focusing on two of the most common choices for polymer labyrinth seals: Torlon and PEEK.
