Inflatable Seals and Clamps

Pawling EP Inflatable Seal and Clamp Technical InfoDesigning an inflatable seal or clamp can be a complicated process, especially if you are unfamiliar with the technology. The following highlights some of the main design factors to consider when specifying an inflatable seal or clamp. 

Pneuma-Seal Standard ProfilesPneuma-Seal Standard Profiles
We offer over 80 different designs in 7 different types under the Pneuma-Seal brand - by far the widest range on the market today.


Inflatable Seal ConstructionInflatable Seal and Clamp Construction
Learn more about how inflatable seals are constructed and the difference between Extruded, Non-Reinforced and Molded, Fabric Reinforced designs.

Inflatable Seal ConstructionInflatable Seal and Clamp Configurations
10 standard configurations are available when designing with either Pneuma-Seal or Q. See how each differ and what may work best for you.

Inflatable Sealing GapRecommended Inflatable Sealing Gap
Unlike compression seals, inflatable seals are inflated to close a designed sealing gap. Find out what factors must be considered when determining what gap is best for your application.

Inflatable Seal Corner DetailsInflatable Seal Corner Details
Corners may be configured for axial, radial expansion outward, and radial expansion inward inflation. Learn more about these different styles.

Inflatable Sealing GapInflatable Clamp (or Seal) End Designs
For inflatable clamps (or seals) which are either straight or u-shaped, the ends must be vulcanized closed. See how this is done and what you need to account for in your design.

Pneuma-Seal Air ConnectorsPneuma-Seal Air Connectors
We offer a number of standard air connector designs, from flexible hoses (reinforced and non-reinforced), mechanical connectors, and molded in-place metal stems for Type 10 seal profiles.

Q Air ConnectorsUniversal Air Connectors
As part of the Q Design Tool and Pneuma-Cel standard bladder clamps, we offer a slightly different air connector system. Before beginning your design, see what air connector options are available.

Custom CapabilitiesInflatable Seal and Clamp Custom Capabilities
We have full in-house design capabilities to manufacture highly customized inflatable seals and clamps. View some of the customizations we have employed in other applications.
