Problem solving to avoid repeat seal failure

nufox fabricated sealBy working in partnership with Nufox, the cause of seal failure was quickly identified whilst also providing invaluable training (so avoiding future failures and minimising production downtime).

CUSTOMER: Leading supplier of elastomeric sealing solutions
LOCATION: UK
END USER MARKET: Oil & Gas

Description of application

  • Fabricated Seal (bonded to a Polyurethane casting) for oil pumping equipment.

Implications of problem

  • All castings are individually moulded so one seal does not fit all as they are bespoke to each casting.
  • The seal is to prevent convection currents subsea by insulating sensitive oil pumping equipment when flow ceases.
  • The customer had problems with the mating half shell assemblies not sealing sufficiently.

Nufox solution

  • Two Nufox operatives travelled to Norway to assess and adjust the seals to ensure a satisfactory operation.
  • Trained end user engineers on how to repair damaged seals on site, an essential service in remote parts of the globe.
