Polymer Seals and Materials for Energy Environmentally Sound Systems
Saint-Gobain Seals is committed to helping organizations make advancements in renewable energy. Even for the oil and gas industry, we work to design and manufacture sealing solutions to be more environmentally sound such as our low fugitive emission (LFE) seal.
We have been working with wind energy for many years, a technology that is affordable, clean and sustainable. Our OmniSeal® axial seals are used in the gearbox, making sure the windmill is as maintenance-free as possible so it can continue generating energy for the many households that need it.
A few of the benefits:
- Inhouse wear tests show our seal lasts for 20 years operating, which reduces maintenance cost.
- Our PTFE material is optimal for non-lubricated applications and does not alter thus reducing the number of failures compared to elastomer seals.
