Renewable Case Study

Posted on: 1st Dec 2015

Seals can be supplied in advance of any works and operational time has now been maximised.

Summary

PolyGlobal works alongside a number of leading sealing solutions companies and also direct with end users on specific projects. As an experienced seal manufacturer with over 30 years’ experience, PolyGlobal was asked to machine 2 rod seals for pitch actuators used within wind turbines.

Project Development

The seals required had to fulfil certain operating conditions. They would have to be replaced at regular service intervals without risk of intermediate failures and carry extremely high levels of durability. The seals would be exposed to a broad range of operating temperatures and pressures. PolyGlobal sourced a new material whose properties exceed the specifications of its operating environment and hand machined the seals to the required profile.

Solution Advantages

A very durable and cost effective solution that can now be replaced as part of regular maintenance work. Seals can be supplied in advance of any works and operational time has now been maximised.
