Gallagher engineers worked with the customer to switch their existing lip seal design to a spring energized seal and also recommended a material change to UHMW-PE.
The customer reduced downtime and saved money, as well as enjoyed a more reliably sealed product.
Gallagher engineers worked with the customer to develop a custom-molded FFKM compensation bladder. Gallagher collaborated with our FFKM supplier-partner to develop a low-temp 60 duro compound that satisfied the needs of the customer’s temperature, enviromental, and flexibility requirements.
Gallagher’s team performed friction calculations to develop a low friction spring energized seal that demonstrated low break-away characteristics.
The success of this spring energized seal led to increased seal life and higher production throughput via reducing friction.
GFS identified the application parameters and designed a custom FKM seal to meet the chemical compatibility and temperature requirements.
The solution was a great success, helping to upgrade the customer product line, eliminate failures, and increase their output.
No project is too small for GFS. This customer needed a MASSIVE 80ft diameter tank gasket for their sewage digestion tank.
Gallagher engineers developed an interlocking EPDM gasket that allowed for sealing of the large containment vessel.
GFS designed a custom-molded gasket, with an engineered profile, which provided optimal sealing performance in the application.
Our solution was a success; it eliminated water intrusion and potential damage, reduced warranty claims, & provided more reliability.
GFS designed a custom sealing solution that would mold the seal directly onto the metal component part, eliminating manual labor.
The custom-molded rubber part was able to increase production output by eliminating the maunal installation stage in the production line.
This case study looks at three typical problems we see in the fluid power industry – side loading, contaminants and increased temperatures.
This case study includes: Hydraulic Cylinder - Side loading, Pneumatic Valve - Contaminants, and Rotary Actuators - Increased Temperatures.
