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.

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 [...]
