The effect of coning on radial forces in face seals having angular misalignment is analyzed. Both the hydrostatic and hydrodynamic components of the resultant radial force are presented. It is shown that the displacement of the primary seal ring due to the action of radial forces is always in a direction which may cause inward pumping. However, in most cases the radial force is very small.
