At Gallagher Fluid Seals, we strive to deliver sealing solutions where there was previously a failure – to be our customers’ Seal Specialist. Our position as an independent distributor allows us the freedom to be truly objective, analyzing the various options available from our suppliers, and providing the optimal sealing configuration for your application.
But with many different product lines at our fingertips, how do we know what seal, gasket, o-ring will work the best in your application? We position ourselves as The Seal Specialist, but it’s not just a motto or a tagline, it’s a culture here at Gallagher.
In 2016, our sales team attended over 1200 hours of training… that’s more than 150 eight hour work days… that’s over 30 five-day work weeks. They trained with some of our key vendors such as Parker, DuPont, Garlock, Freudenberg Sealing Technologies, GORE, Thermoseal, and Thordon, to gain a better understanding of their product lines.
Gallagher Fluid Seals is pleased to announce that they have acquired Commo Sealing Products of North Providence, Rhode Island. Established in 1997, Commo Sealing Products was a fabricator of mostly rubber gaskets and sealing elements, with the majority of their customers located in and around the greater Providence area.
Current Commo Sealing customers will be serviced by Gallagher’s Fabrication/Sales Office located in East Longmeadow, MA. The East Longmeadow facility boasts over 40,000 sq.ft. of manufacturing space.
Gallagher Fluid Seals recently held its 60th anniversary gala, inviting employees, family, and friends to Sunnybrook Country Club in Blue Bell, PA for a night of celebration and reflection.
As Gallagher celebrates its 60th anniversary, we’ve decided to use this space to look back, and discuss what the future holds.
The year was 1956. Elvis Presley owned the airwaves, and was emerging as one of the world’s first rock stars. Felix Wankel (Germany) developed the first rotary internal combustion engine. The cost of a first-class stamp was three cents. And in a small house in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, with four young children and a wife, Walter B. Gallagher started Gallagher Fluid Seals.
There’s a new generation of polyurethane on the market, courtesy of our friends at the German company Freudenberg Sealing Technologies.
It’s called 94 AU 30000 polyurethane, and it achieves much better results than other materials on the market due to its improved characteristics. It gives seals a high resistance to even hot water and lets them last longer than other seal solutions.
Among 94 AU 30000 polyurethane’s values to customers:
High extrusion stability allows operating pressures up to 50 MPa/7250 psi.
High tear resistance boosts operating life and resistance to wear.
Stability in temperatures from -31 degrees F to 250 degrees F/ -35 degrees C to 120 degrees C.
Outstanding with mineral and biodegradable hydraulic fluids.

Gallagher Fluid Seals’ team worked with experts from Freudenberg to record this half hour session. We hope you’ll come away with a better understanding of this durable sealing solution.
