Canted Coil Springs have the unique characteristic of retaining a near constant load throughout their full working range. In seal energising, this means the force, and therefore friction, remains the same as the spring expands to compensate for lip wear. This gives the seal predictable performance throughout its working life.
The springs ability to be laid completely flat and fully recover also make it ideal for non-sealing applications such as latching and connecting.
The geometry of the Canted Coil is perhaps the most complex of all spring types and Clifford Springs employs the most advanced and capable machines in their production.
They are available in a range of standard sizes and materials but also available in custom sizes and from our range of exotic materials.
