Titanium processing plant needs exceptional seal quality and performance

Application

Specialist metal processing facility carrying out melting and forging of titanium.

Problem

Large O-rings (up to 1400mm/4.5ft diameter and 14mm/ 0.5" cross section) are used to seal the furnaces/plasma weld chambers, vital in the melting of the titanium at 1200°C/2192°F. Contamination of the potassium sulphate coolant into the molten titanium would result in an explosion capable of destroying the facility.

Solution

PPE supplied large silicone O-rings manufactured to very tight tolerances to meet extremely stringent quality controls.

Result

Superior quality O-rings prevent catastrophic failure, avoiding risk of potential explosion within the process and multi-million costs.
