Self forming seal-strip

Idea: Janos Szijarto, SE-Finspong

Between gas turbine vanes seal strips are used to get a more radial geometry. Up to

assembly of these strips is done before the assembly of the vanes into the ring.

now, the

To fit in the seal strips after the vanes are in position, the usage of stiff, straight seal strips is proposed.

These seal strips are assembled between the vanes and they will be locked by bending on both sides.

Advantageously this kind of seal forms itself when assembled.
