Turcon® Varilip® PDR
High-Speed and High Performance Rotary Sealing
- Wide operating temperature range from -100 °C to +260 °C / -148 °F to +500 °F
- PTFE materials provide the lowest coefficient-of-friction available, between (.04 to .08)
- Chemically inert and self-lubricating to minimize contamination
- High rotational speed capability
Typical Healthcare & Medical Applications:
Diagnostic and laboratory equipment, such as centrifuges, actuators, motors, gear boxes and vacuum pumps.
Materials Specific to Healthcare & Medical
Our Turcon® Varilip® PDR seals are made using our high performance, proprietary Turcon® PTFE compounds, many of which are compliant with FDA CFR177.2600, 3-A, USP Class VI, Cytotoxicity (USP 87), NSF, KTW, WRAS etc.
About Turcon® Varilip® PDR Seals
Turcon® Varilip® PDR seals are used in a variety of life sciences equipment, generally in rotational applications. The seals are comprised of two components - a precision machined metal body and a formed or bent PTFE element which is mechanically retained in the metal body. They are suitable for high speed, low pressure applications. Turcon® Varilip® PDR seals can be machined with a groove that automatically back pumps fluid, preventing fluid from going past the seal and into the environment.
