Ensuring that rubber seals perform as intended throughout their service life is always of critical importance.
This expert-led course explains the material property and performance background and specific requirements necessary to achieve effective seals. You will start with a grounding in seal materials and learn about materials selection based on service requirements. You’ll get to grips with seal design and how to develop a specification. You will also gain a critical understanding of long term performance issues and how to avoid failure.
Elastomeric seals can often be low cost components of the systems into which they are incorporated and therefore their importance can be overlooked. However, rubber seals are always key components in terms of ensuring the correct function of those systems throughout their service lifetime. The consequences of failure of any seal reach far beyond the cost of the seal itself, which is often insignificant by comparison.
When a seal fails there can be a number of possible explanations - but the event itself can lead to substantial consequential damage claims and often loss of reputation for those supplying it.
