Bonded seal called Dowty seal or a sealing washer, is a specialized type of sealing device used to create a reliable and leak-proof seal in high-pressure applications. It combines the properties of a metal washer and a rubber seal, providing an effective sealing solution for threaded connections.
They consist of a metal washer with a rubber sealing ring bonded to its inner diameter. The metal washer provides structural support and helps distribute the compressive load evenly, while the rubber seal ensures a tight and secure seal against the mating surfaces.
Also are commonly used in hydraulic systems, automotive applications, plumbing connections, and other high-pressure sealing applications. They offer a reliable, easy-to-install, and cost-effective sealing solution, making them a preferred choice in industries that require effective sealing under challenging conditions.
