We provide seals for applications solar power, wind power and hydropower
Seals for biomass energy and geothermal energy production
High pressure, high temperature and high velocity applications
Low friction, large diameter environmental seals
Seals are a vital part of the critical function of cylinder, actuator and bearing systems involved in the component build of turbines for both wind and tidal power generation. They are required to provide long term functionality, ensure life cycle requirements and provide durability in harsh environmental conditions, including extreme high and low temperatures.
For rotary applications we offer a range of materials with outstanding friction and wear resistance characteristics. We manufacture large diameter seals for high pressure and high velocity shafts, and any additional components with oscillating or rotating parts.
For hydraulic applications our seals provide leak free operation at high temperatures and pressures, and prevent the ingress of contaminants into critical areas of equipment to ensure service life and minimise maintenance.
We also have a range of sealing solutions suitable for applications within solar energy fields; for example low friction environmental rotary seals for gearbox shafts used for solar panel positioning.
Our engineered products improve application efficiency and extend seal life, therefore reducing costly downtime and maintenance.
Our extensive product range for the Renewable Energy market includes:
· Large Diameter O-rings
· Custom moulded rubber seals and gaskets
· Hydraulic and pneumatic seals
· Metal seals
· Spring energised PTFE seals and PTFE co-axial seals
· Rotary seals
· Composite seals (chemical bond or over-moulding)
Our application engineers utilise the latest in 2D/3D CAD and FEA simulation software to design and replicate seal performance before finalising each individual seal design, incorporating significant feature and critical function elements for integration with customer mating parts.
We designed and engineered PTFE seals for slip ring systems and contactless rotary joints for the reliable transfer of power and media.
We developed a rotary seal for a prototype fluid separating device used for research purposes with the potential to develop the unit for use on an industrial scale.
We provided an engineered sealing solution for our customer Supply Plus Ltd; a manufacturer of delivery systems for oil based fuels for household heating systems, and the supply and dispense of diesel and aviation fuels.
