Types of Fluoroelastomer Seals for Pump Users: Explained
Aggressive pumping environments can be problematic for pump engineers. This paper investigates the latest developments in fluoroelastomer technology.
Effective Sealing for Pumps with Elastomers
Pump users demand maximum operating efficiency from their investment and sealing solutions have to be designed to function between long service intervals.
Food & Pharmaceutical:
This whitepaper explains the benefits of FFKM, how it compares to other elastomer materials and why it is becoming the material of choice for many food, dairy and pharmaceutical sealing applications.
Oil & Gas:
Choosing a High Temperature Steam Resistant Elastomer
This paper details the properties of EnDura® E90SR after high temperature steam exposure in comparison with other types of commercially available elastomers.
Low Temperature Sealing in High Pressure Applications
Explore the many choices in elastomer materials based on criteria such as chemical and heat resistance.
Electrostatic Discharge in Semiconductor
Technological progress within the semiconductor industry brings with it greater yield sensitivity with the desire to reduce costs a constant driver. How well defects are controlled throughout an increasingly automated manufacturing process plays a critical role.
Killer Consumables: How clean are your seals?
In semiconductor manufacturing the threat of particle and especially metallic contamination to transistor integrity is a significant and potentially costly threat.
Purity or Plasma Resistance - Can you have both?
A study of tests carried out on different elastomer materials in aggressive chemistries and plasma conditions.
Introduction to Perlast Helios
Perlast® Helios G7HA is a perfluoroelastomer (FFKM) material capable of eliminating the trade-off betweeen high purity, plasma resistance and high temperature performance.
