Molded dust seal rings

Dust seal rings, custom molded from nitrile elastomer compounds, are offered by the company for use in helicopter precision rotor bearing assemblies. Due to the close tolerance requirements of these dust seals, their manufacture requires the use of an elastomer that bonds well to G-10 fiberglass and precision in both design and molding to ensure that bearing assembly components are adequately protected. The company offers capabilities that are said to be crucial to the production of dust seal rings, including an in-house molding press which can manufacture components as large as 44", while maintaining tolerances on part diameter as tight as [+ or -] .010 and thickness as close as [+ or -] .003, accurate secondary trim operations and superior machining of G-10 inserts from sheet stock. The bonding of rubber to other substrates is said to be another specialty of the company. (Pelmor Laboratories, 401 Lafayette St., Newtown, PA 18940-0309)
