Abstract : From a continued surveillance of technical literature, vendor information and analysis of various fluid seal problems, the fluid seal problem in general seems to be reaching a point of status quo. Research is being continued on seal applications involving super parameter requirements, rotating speed, pressure, temperature, and special fluids, but the applications for the majority of aircraft accessory situations seems to be fairly well solved. Speeds of 25,000 to 40,000 rmp, pressures as high as 300 psi, and conventional fluids, such as hydraulic fluid, jet engine fuel, seem t offer little problem in sealing with present day seal designs.
