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 [...]

Maudlin gives you three options for purchasing spring energizers

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line, Spring Welding|

Available in Cantilever Spring, Helical Spring, and Slant Coil Spring Linear Footage As linear footage - This is commonly referred to as "on a spool".  If you have the capability to cut and weld your own spring this purchasing method can be very beneficial.  Maudlin will supply [...]

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 [...]

Helical replacements for O-Ring loaded U-Cup seals.

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line, Spring Welding|

For many sealing applications, particularly those with little to no pressure and/or very low temperatures, a secondary seal energizer may be required.  For standard u-cup type seals, this is often an elastomeric o-ring.  These o-rings do a good job of energizing the u-cup but they are limited in their application range.  Certain o-rings are good [...]

Slant Coil Spring Features and Benefits

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line|

The function of a spring in many systems is to introduce mechanical force through motion. This can be in an automobile suspension system, a spring return in a valve, or in the case of Maudlin Products, a spring energized seal. Most of the springs used in these systems have a linear relationship between force and [...]

V Spring vs. U Spring

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line|

Maudlin Products supplies various styles of spring energizers into an array of applications worldwide. Each spring has its advantages and disadvantages in a given application so deciding which system parameter is most important is the key to a good spring choice. For instance, if low friction is critical, a Slant Coil spring will be a [...]

Spring Energizer alloys, options, features, and availability.

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line, Spring Welding|

Another unique feature of Maudlin spring energizers aside from their load characteristics is that they are available in a multitude of materials. These materials include everything from basic 300 series stainless steels to exotic alloys like Hastelloy®, Inconel®, and Elgiloy®. Each one having unique properties making them favorable for a wide range of applications. Below is a list [...]

Pre-Cut and Welded Standard Radial Gland Spring

Cut to Length, Ready to Install! No Minimums While the benefits of welding the spring in a spring energized seal have been discussed at length in prior posts, potential complications from welding can make manufacturing a consistent seal difficult, especially if you don’t have trained personnel and the proper equipment. Maudlin can take a lot [...]

Features of the four types of spring energizers and their unique deflection characteristics

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line|

As discussed in previous articles, the spring is the skeleton of the seal.  In this article, we will look a little closer at the features and benefits of our four standard spring types.  These include: V-spring, Helical, Full Contact, and Slant Coil.  The concept of a spring energizer is fairly straightforward.  The greater the deflection, the [...]

“The spring is the skeleton of the seal”

Categories: Energizer Spring, Spring Product Line|

It is well known that Maudlin offers metal spring energizers for use in spring energized seals. These springs include V and U Spring as well as Helical, Slant Coil and Full Contactsprings, each available in standard and custom sizes. The spring is a critical part of any spring energized seal design as it allows designers to fine tune their solutions. A proper spring choice can help [...]
