FFKM Seals outperform metal O-rings

FFKM Seals outperform metal O-rings
Metal O-ring deformation can sometimes occur when process operating conditions reach temperatures up to 300°C, with liquid pressures also as high as 100bar. This form of seal failure can result in leaks, causing safety concerns while also necessitating clean-up operations and the interruption or total suspension of production line activities.

High Performance Seals Handle Rapid Gas Decompression In Extreme Environments

High Performance Seals Handle Rapid Gas Decompression In Extreme Environments
Increasing oil extraction pressures and temperatures, aggressive chemicals and rapid gas decompression (RGD) in new, more difficult drilling sites are creating operating environments beyond the capabilities of most elastomers. DuPont Kalrez 0090 (K-312 “A” O-rings) perfluoroelastomer sealing parts, however, were developed to provide enhanced rapid gas decompression resistance in aggressive environments and have received the industry best “0000” rating in accordance with the NORSOK M-710 Rev. 2 standard and TOTAL GS EP PVV 142 specification.

DuPont O-Rings Increase Sealing Performance for Processing Applications

DuPont O-Rings Increase Sealing Performance for Processing Applications
Kalrez Spectrum perfluoroelastomer O-rings from the DuPont Performance Elastomers range have been successfully used to minimise the risk of premature seals failure, increase MTBF times and significantly reduce costly downtime for hydraulic clamping systems. The clamping products were manufactured by a leading European manufacturer of heavy-duty systems for applications in the metals, plastics and rubber processing industries.

Using Low Cost Seals Can Be a Long Term False Economy

Using Low Cost Seals Can Be a Long Term False Economy
Production processes utilising hazardous chemicals such as acids and amines, very often at elevated temperatures of 150°C or more, occur in a wide range of manufacturing industries including oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical and semiconductor. The combination of corrosive fluids and high temperatures can be particularly destructive for any sealing elements used in valves, pumps and other equipment forming part of a production process and associated pipework.

Performance enhancements for mass flow controllers

Performance enhancements for mass flow controllers
Digital Mass Flow Controllers, as typically used in the semiconductor, chemical processing, food and pharmaceutical industries, are designed to both measure and control the flow of various gases and liquids. Applications also occur where MFC’s are used in analytical laboratories for High Pressure Liquid Chromatography. In many applications the gases and fluids are operating at modest temperatures up to 80°C, but can include aggressive media flows which necessitate the use of specialised chemical-resistant elastomer seals.

High performance seals extend DME fuelled transport operations

High performance seals extend DME fuelled transport operations
Dimethyl ether burns much cleaner than diesel oils, and is also proving to be an economic and effective alternative fuel or fuel additive for use with gas turbines as well as petrol and diesel powered engines. However, the operation of diesel engines powered by DME fuel for commercial passenger transportation, with DuPont Kalrez 6375 O-ring seals fitted to the fuel injectors, has achieved and maintained reliable engine performance without premature seal degradation.

Enhanced Seal Performance For Freeze-Drying Applications

Enhanced Seal Performance For Freeze-Drying Applications
Freeze-drying processes can involve cycling temperatures in the range of -20°C to +130°C, together with solvents and/or water under medium/high pressures. This combination of aggressive working conditions is conducive to the development of thermal stresses in the seals utilised for the freezer operation. These thermal stresses can also result in associated mechanical stresses leading to premature sealing failures due to cracking and blistering of the seal materials. Dupont Kalrez 6230 perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) parts have been developed to meet such challenging sealing requirements, offering excellent steam cycling resistance up to 260°C.
