Used extensively in Radial Oil Seals and Cassette Seals, the Garter Spring is perhaps the most common of all spring types.

Supplied in open and closed coil formats, they can be used as either internal or external energiser, adding to the elasticity and compliance of the seal. Consequently, they add sealing force and assist in the compensation for eccentricity, offset and out-of-round conditions that may otherwise lead to leakage.

Garter Springs can be connected at the ends by use of an insert, an integral cone end or with laser-welding.
