The Meander Spring, also referred to as a cantilever spring, is available in U-Spring or V-Spring profiles. It is supplied in industry standard 000 - 500 series including weld-free micro springs.
Offering a medium load, easy assembly and the ability to combine with back pressure support, it is one of the most popular choices in PTFE seal energising, particularly in dynamic sealing applications.
The load distributing edges make the Meander Spring the ideal choice for high temperature applications in which the seal material may soften, allowing other spring types to cause material flow or embedding.
Due to the need for tooling, the meander spring is typically sold from standard sizes but, custom sizes are also possible.
