Segment seals are gas seals for the main shafts of aircraft engines, and are also used in rockets due to their outstanding reliability.
Segment seals were developed mainly for the main shafts of aircraft engines using technology introduced from Koppers Inc. in the US. Segment seals feature high sealing performance and durability as gas seals, as they have unique structures backed by high-precision machining technology.
Segment seals are highly regarded for their minimal consumption of buffer gas in production lines where toxic and inflammable gases are used. They are widely used not only in rockets and aircraft, such as the domestically developed H-1 rocket, but also in general industrial fields such as the steel industry.
