Reverse Engineering Seals and Gaskets

Any well-equipped and structured company can fabricate components with established design documentation, but what happens if a company requests a part for which there is no design history?

What choices are available to you if you don’t have the required documentation? Design documentation may be difficult to locate, gone missing, damaged, unfinished, or somehow non-existent.

These outdated, old parts can still be regenerated for a new use even while their design documentation is discarded. While it may appear straightforward to re-engineer such parts, doing so properly and consistently might involve a number of challenges.

Remarkably, we can reduce a process that used to take days to just a few hours thanks to our technical knowledge, and extensive experience. Continue reading “Reverse Engineering Seals and Gaskets”

Significance of complementary design service

Sometimes what is requested, what has been used previously, or what at first appears to be the obvious choice, is not always the optimum solution. Or perhaps no obvious solution presents itself. We choose to understand the application before making any recommendation on design and material.

Environmental Door Seal

C Wrap – Environmental seal and Shielding seal Combination

Birth of C-Wrap

If you make or are involved in Cabinets, Enclosures or Doors do you find that you have to make two or even three different configurations, depending on whether your client wants an environmental seal, a shielded seal or a combination of both.

Traditionally you might have fitted a sponge strip, or you use a form in place gasket for the environmental seal or finger stock for shielding or a combination of sponge strip and finger stock or maybe a knitted wire and sponge arrangement top meet the combination of both.

Problem with traditional sealing methods:

The trouble with this is time, planning and money, having to alter your principal design every time a client wants something slightly different, and having to hold stock of different seals and gaskets and expensive shielding materials.

What happens if the client then wants a V-0 fire rating or an ATEx/IECEx approval or a DEF-STAN grade or they need multiple gland plates or access plate covers that need Sealing and Shielding?

One company has a simple, cost effective, easily fitted and highly adaptable solution that can fulfil all your requirements and more.

  • V-0 fire rating – no problem,
  • ATEx/IECEx approval – no problem or
  • DEF-STAN grade – no problem.

Toxic smoke inhalation – the Silent Killer

Importance of UL94 V0 certification for Seals, Gaskets, and Mouldings

Were you aware that people are much more likely to die from smoke than burns during a fire?

Toxic fumes obstruct eyesight, irritate the eyes and lungs, and makes it difficult to breathe. Mental capacity loss, dizziness, fear, and finally unconsciousness leading to death are the end consequences of inhaling toxic smoke. The London Kings Cross fire incident in 1987 is one such example, the official findings stated that, “A jet of flame roared into the ticket hall, which quickly filled with toxic smoke so that even many of those who escaped the flames were overcome and died” (1), all because of toxic smoke inhalation.  Statistics reveal that 41% of fire-related deaths in the UK (2) were caused when people were overpowered by gas, smoke, or poisonous fumes.
