Custom Seals

Seals are among the most important parts of any system, which means that supplying you with the perfect seal is important to us.

Here at Phoenix Specialty, we work with OEM’s across the world from all industries, including agriculture, automotive, energy, and more. Our team of highly trained professionals incorporate the latest technology and innovative processing methods to ensure your custom seals are manufactured to perfect precision.

Need a thin seal in a low volume? No problem! We can manufacture custom seals down to .0005″ thick. We have an in-house tool & die shop, which means that short runs are easy for us. We can create your tooling in a matter of hours, and have your seals delivered to you quick!

Whatever your unique specifications and requirements are, we can create it. Our seals are all American-made, and we have over 300 raw materials on hand to choose from.

At Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing, we know that the difference between a project’s success and catastrophic failure can be measured in thousandths of an inch. When you need a seal to meet your exact measurements, we guarantee you will receive the product you need.

Types of Seals

Other Seal Types

We offer several different types of seals at Phoenix Specialty: 1. Labyrinth seals: A mechanical seal that helps prevent leakage. These are commonly found within an axle’s bearing to keep the oil lubricating the bearing from leaking. 2. Liquid film shaft seals: A seal that restricts or prevents process-gas leakage into the atmosphere. Shaft seals are used frequently with process gas compressors. 3. Dry gas seals: These mechanical seals have a mating (rotating) ring and a primary (stationary) ring. Dry gas seals are often used in petrochemical industries and in chemical processing. 4. Mechanical oil seals: This seal helps to join systems or mechanisms together by preventing leaking and by also containing pressure. These seals are commonly found in gaskets in internal combustion engines.

About Seals

Seals are among the most important parts of any system, machine, or device. Seals are used to secure two pieces of equipment (which can mean pipes, levers, tubes, and other applications where connections are required) and prevent leaks. Almost everything you use or interact with has seals in it or is directly powered by something with seals. Some of the more common household applications include sprinkler systems, sink faucets and pipes, vacuums, computers, and a variety of other basic goods and tools. In industrial settings, few seals are more important than those used in compressors and other high-pressure situations. Compressors are widely used throughout the aerospace, engineering, agricultural, automotive, and landscaping industries. Without proper seals, the pipes and tubes that make compressors operate would leak air or fluid, rendering them completely useless. Dry gas seals, the type used for compressors, were not invented until 1951. One of the reasons seals do not have a rich and lengthy history has to do with their use. Simply put, compressors and other hydraulic applications where seals are useful were not widely used until the middle of the 20th century. While rudimentary seals have existed for a few hundred years (in the form of basic washers) and were a significant part of the industrial revolution (keeping primitive machines functioning properly), modern compressor seals were not widely used until the early 1970s. We have been manufacturing and producing seals since their widespread use and have developed techniques to create some of the world's highest-quality compressor seals.
