When Ken Lamb, Advanced Engineering Manager for Vanseal, says, “He’s seen it all” – he isn’t exaggerating. Understanding what he’s learned over the years reveals how Vanseal’s engineer-to-engineer approach helps clients solve some pretty tough problems. Continue reading
While the use of hydrodynamic engineering isn’t new to seal design, Vanseal has perfected a bi-directional lip geometry that supports leak-tight sealing in bi-directional rotating shaft assemblies. Continue reading
Sometimes we need to double-check to make sure things are safe, which is why Vanseal Corporation will double-check your seals before we package and ship them to you. Continue reading
Vibration, harmonics, and temperatures cause dimensional changes to lightweight housing materials and threaten the integrity of sealing mechanics. Vanseal solves vibration issues with PTFE /rubber OD seal engineering expertise.
Helical grooving incorporated into the surface of seals have a remarkable impact on friction, wear, and heat. Continue reading
Energy drain is an issue that impacts most industries. However, seals made from low-friction compounds have been able to significantly reduce power drain in systems ranging from very, small pumps to large industrial engines. Continue reading
When your project is on a rapid timeline and needs to run smoothly, call on Vanseal for prototypes that are functional and made from the specified production material with accurate and representative tolerances. Continue reading
Improvements in high-performance metals and elastomers have benefitted both performance and maintainability of hydro-mechanical systems in commercial aircraft. Learn why specialty seal engineering is required when seals simply can’t fail. Continue reading
Microscopic flaws on the surface of a seal lip, over time, create directional performance characteristics. Vanseal examines the causes and solutions when a negative load affects a seal that must run in reverse. Continue reading
Hydraulic power steering has been around for decades, and recently, automotive manufacturers have incorporated methods to reduce vehicle weight in system design. However, the use of electronic steering methods, as a means of improving vehicle gas mileage has created sealing problems. Continue reading
The YMCA of Fayette County believes that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. All joking aside, Vanseal Corp is proud to sponsor the YMCA providing uniforms and gear to support youth soccer, baseball and basketball. Give to the YMCA to help keep youth development and healthy living going in Fayette County. Continue reading
Building reliable rotary shaft equipment begins by regarding the assembly as a sealing system. The system includes the shaft, seal-bore, sealed media and the seal. Every element must work in concert with one another for the assembly to successfully function. If the shaft finish is wrong, or the system vibrates because of misalignment, the seal can’t do its job. Continue reading
Radial lip seals have become one of the most critical components in today’s modern industrial and commercial equipment. That’s why PTFE and elastomer seal lip design is in the spotlight as a way to increase the life expectancy of heavy duty equipment.
If you find yourself in the middle of a “Blame-Game” – learn why PTFE seals are added insurance against critical system failures because of its ability to withstand even the most grueling extremes in climate, environment, and dry running conditions. Continue reading
