Actuation:

High integrity piston and gland seals are specified to meet the high usage, long-life demands of aircraft actuators. These can be designed for a variety of configurations up to 55 MPa (8000 psi). With its vast experience in this field, AEG Sealing Solutions can also assist with actuator design by recommending component tolerances, surface finishes and coatings and seal groove geometries.

Flight controls:

A wide range of both elastomer and spring energized PTFE solutions, offer zero leakage and long life performance, in an environment characterized by high frequency oscillation. For rotary shaft seal applications, AEG Sealing Solutions provides conventional radial oil seals through to high performance PTFE lip seals.

Engine systems:

A wide range of sealing systems for engine and engine management applications including fan blade annulus fillers, fan cowl and thrust reverser doors, heat exchangers, drive shafts, air intakes, fairings and coupling systems. Materials are selected for high temperature performance and include silicones up to +270°C and the high performance Perfluoroelastomer specially developed by AEG Sealing Solutions, which will operate at up to +320°C. Reinforced engine seals and ducts are available that can provide fire control at tested temperatures of +1100°C.

Wheel and brake:
