offers a range of specialty Ferrofluidic seals. These allow engineers
to dramatically improve the quality of many processes and the performance
of critical products. Ferrofluidic zero-leakage sealing capability
can be incorporated in a broad range of mechanical configurations
and addresses wide pressure, speed and temperature sealing challenges.
Because of the broad variety of installations where Ferrofluidic
seals can be used, many are application-specific designs. Typical
examples of Ferrofluidic specialty seals include:
The GT6 range of industrial seals offers a hermetic seal for low
pressure fans, blowers and vertical pumps in critical applications.
These include processes such as hydrocarbon processing where they
can prevent the release of VOCs into the atmosphere, nuclear applications
and other critical processes where it is essential to prevent either
contaminant ingress or the emission of process gases.
Ferrofluidic seals are used in many military and
surveillance aircraft for the protection of optical devices and
sensitive electronic instrumentation. Ferrofluidic seals can be
extremely compact and provide reliable operation and long service
life under extreme conditions.
Rotating X-ray anodes
Ferrofluidic seals can be used in x-ray anodes which rotate at high
speeds inside vacuum chambers. They are actively cooled while rotating
to remove the intense heat created by high power x-ray generation.
Ferrofluidic feedthroughs are ideal for optical
coating applications. These may include fiber optic filter manufacturing
where high speed, large diameter hollow shaft feedthroughs are used,
or optical fiber manufacturing where the hermetic ferrofluid seal
ensures that atmospheric moisture cannot enter the process and undermine
the quality of the deposited film.
Ferrofluidic sealing delivers unmatched performance
in both pressure and vacuum sealing of lamps for military, medical,
commercial and automotive lighting. A non-wearing, maintenance free
Ferrofluidic seal replaces maintenance-intensive oil plates and
dynamic elastomer seals which can cause downtime and allow particulate
and oil contamination of the lamp during production.
