ERJ staff report (BC)
Hereford,UK - TRP Sealing Systems is producing moulded elastomer valve seals over 2000mm in diameter with a tolerance on the inside diameter of just 2mm.
Production on TRP’s range of modern computer controlled moulding equipment allows a degree of precision that would normally be associated with much smaller components.
Technical director Warren Febery said: “Customers can rely on TRP to provide product to meet the increasing technical demands of our industry. Our understanding of elastomers and ability to control our process and production environment has allowed us to accurately control the finished size.
TRP Sealing Systems designs and produces elastomer mouldings from product origination and process engineering through to prototype and full production. The company claims extensive knowledge of rubber moulding, rubber-to-metal bonding and combining rubber with PTFE.
