Spring Energizer Industries and Benefits

Categories: Spring Product Line|

V-Spring V-Spring is a very versatile spring used in many different applications.  It is a great starting point for any spring energized seal and is widely used in oil and gas applications due to its large deflection range and availability in Elgiloy.  Common application temperature ranges for this spring are -75 to 500 F [...]

Metal Spring Energizers vs. O-ring Energizers

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line|

O-rings have been used for many years to energize u-cup style seals with great success.  Ever-increasing application demands in terms of pressure and temperature, however, have made o-ring energizers less practical than other (metal) type energizers.  The primary problem with using o-rings in these HP-HT applications is the fact that the o-ring, over time, [...]

More Than Just Energizers for Seals

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line|

When it comes to advanced sealing technologies, it is commonly known that metal spring energizers offer solutions to some of today’s most complicated applications.  Especially in the case of the Slant Coil spring, which has a flat curve shape that makes it ideal for applications such as high-speed rotary, friction limited, or difficult installations. [...]

Heat treating Elgiloy spring – Features and Benefits

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line|

In general terms, heat treating is the closely controlled process of heating and cooling a material to achieve improved mechanical properties.  Heat treating in metals is about controlling the size of the grain structure which in turn improves properties such as toughness, shear strength and tensile strength.  In the case of Maudlin springs this can mean [...]

Spring Load vs. Deflection

Categories: Energizer Spring|

Understanding the characteristics of the spring in a spring energized seal or connector mechanism is important when designing an engineered solution.  Too much spring force can lead to premature wear or assembly / disassembly problems.  Whereas too little force can lead to seal leakage or lack of contact in an electrical connector.  Maudlin can help [...]
