What is an Inflatable door Seal
Western inflatable door seal is a reinforced elastomeric tube or without reinforced (depend on pressure)custom molded in a round concave, convoluted or flat configuration . It is designed to round out with the introduction of an inflation medium to form a tight barrier between a mounting and striking surface.
How Does an Inflatable door seal Work?
When you feel air as per pressure(chk pressure data). the seal quickly expands to the striking surface, effecting a positive seal. When the inflation medium is removed, the seal retracts naturally to pre-inflated configuration. This position provides clearance for free movement of one or both surfaces.
How to inflate door seal ?
very common inflation medium is regulated air. The specific parameters of the application determine the optimum operating pressure(please chk data in pressure certificate). In some applications, liquid or gel may be used as the inflation medium. Introduction of the inflation medium is through a stem which is usually a flexible high temp hose secured to an integrally molded fitting with a ferrule. A variety of fittings you can attached to the end of the hose.
Why Use an western Inflatable door Seal? An inflatable door seal has several advantages over other sealing methods: Western door seal provides a leak-proof closure, yet allows clearance when needed.(so no need of perfect fabrication)
Western seal minimize work on design of the structure and hardware.
Western seal dont require fabrication for close machining and/or fabricating tolerances.
Western seal also reduce replacement time
Western Inflatable door Seal types
Inflatable seals can be installed in different shapes; radially in, radially out, axially and any combination thereof. They will conform to many different contours. They are made in strips or round with closed ends or in continuous loops. The bend radii will vary from seal to seal and sizes if a very sharp or mitered corner is necessary, the seal can be molded to the exact configuration
