Bone Drills

Customer: Surgical Instrument Manufacturer
Application: Bone drill oiler cartridge seal

Issues:

  • Previous O-Ring had excessive wear and leakage
  • Exposed to air, mineral oil and autoclave sterilization

Solution

  • Variseal® M with Turcon®T17 seal material and medium load V-Spring

The bone drill design uses an oiler cartridge to keep the drill tip cool during operation. A seal is needed to contain the oil and keep contamination out. This static application operates at 0.414 MPa / 60 psi, +135 °C / +275 °F and is exposed to air, mineral oil and autoclave sterilization.

The seal met all operating requirements and provided improved wear resistance resulting in extended seal life.
