Saint-Gobain Seals announced that their last oil and gas tradeshow for the year will be in Germany at the Valve World Conference & Expo, where they will showcase their range of bespoke and advanced OmniSeal® spring-energized seals used for critical valve applications. The expo, which is held at Düsseldorf, will be from November 27 to 29 this year.
The manufacturing and design engineering business will concentrate on sharing its knowledge of sealing solutions for a large variety of increasingly demanding valve applications such as cryogenic, fugitive emissions, high pressure and high temperature. Their OmniSeal® product line was introduced over 30 years ago in the oil and gas industry as a reliable replacement for elastomeric seals. Since then, the business has been able to support their customers through close research and development, which has resulted in the development of a pre-validation process and transversal cryogenic platform.
Currently, Saint-Gobain Seals’ sealing solutions cover a wide range of working conditions such as temperatures from -196°C to +300°C (-320.8°F to 572°) and pressures up to 2,000 bar (30kpsi). The Kontich facility also manufactures large diameter seals (up to 3,000mm / 118in) that are used for offshore applications.
