The report discusses the design, laboratory scale tests, construction, and field tests of an improved metal-to-metal seal for coke-oven end doors. Basic features of the seal are: high-strength temperature-resistant steel capable of 3 times the deflection of current seals without permanent deformation; no backup springs and plungers and the attendant requirement for manual inservice adjustments; seal installed to conform to the jamb profile; seal lip height reduced to give 8 times the inplane flexibility; and compatibility with existing coke batteries and door handling machines.
