Seal Design and FEA

FEA and Seal Performance

By selecting the best part design and compound for a specific application, processors can improve seal performance in most applications.

Kalrez® parts are available in several compounds in a wide variety of finished product forms, from conventional seal shapes to custom configurations.

Whether you're investing in a new application or upgrading the sealing materials at your facility, our authorized distributors or our experienced application engineers can help you select the best sealing solution for your process environment.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA) capabilities are available in DuPont laboratories to help design new seal shapes, optimize compound selection and groove geometry, and model performance of parts in service. Use of FEA can shorten development lead times and produce innovative solutions for long-term sealing performance.
