Our engineering expertise and state-of-the-art equipment ensure that each custom component is developed to the most stringent standards and customer specifications.
We deliver optimal product performance while maximizing our customers’ cost-to-benefit ratio.
Technical excellence requires rigorous evaluation
APPROACH: Our engineering team starts each project by analyzing the customer’s requirements for their custom elastomer component.
- The type of fluid the product will encounter
- System pressure
- Temperature pressure
- Duration at temperature
- Product life
These factors will determine which custom compound will be developed to best suit our customer’s application.
The perfect union of science and mathematics
APPROACH: Once the material is selected, the engineering team will calculate the optimum seal geometry.
This analysis includes:
- Static or dynamics sealing requirements
- Gland dimensions
- Installation requirements (manual or automated assembly)
- Direction of pressure (internal or external)
- Compression (squeeze) requirements
- Volume/void ratio
- Sealing gap clearance
- Tolerance stack-up
- Closure force requirements
