9780070078277 A reference on the design, application, testing and manufacture of seals and gaskets for static and dynamic fluid sealing. It examines state-of-the-art practices in materials selection, test techniques, instrumentation developments, and mathematical tools for making informed sealing decisions. The contents range from the thermodynamic life of an oil seal to applications as diverse as a gasket joint in a pipeline to a rotary shaft seal on an engine camshaft. The "Handbook of fluid sealing" offers in-depth coverage of: seals for static applications, including metallic and non-metallic gaskets, elastomeric and non-elastomeric seals, and liquid gaskets and sealants; seals for dynamic applications, such as radial lip seals, mechanical face seals, seals and packings for reciprocating and rotating shafts, and non-contacting seals; fluids and lubricants, including grease, engine oil, gear oil, and automatic transmission fluids; and statistical analysis of seal testing and Weibull statistics. The "Handbook" enables engineers to avoid most of the pitfalls in the selection and application of sealing produts. Among the many topics covered are the factors affecting sealing reliability, fluid compatibility, manufacturing considerations, and material limitations. In all, the "Handbook" offers a solid understanding of the fundamentals of the sealing of fluids that will lead to better product and systems design, as well as a safer, more sound environment.
