Any industry that needs to seal viscous media (urethane, epoxies, etc) can utilize this Eclipse technology to improve their operational reliability and production up-time while reducing seal replacement time and cost.
Trailer manufacturers are increasingly using high-tech glue to join frames and panels made of metal, plastic, and composites––instead of the traditional welds and rivets. Adhesives distribute stress more evenly along joints and are less visible. They also reduce assembly costs and increase production throughput.
A component in the client’s existing adhesive dispenser unit (glue gun) used rubber FKM seals––which were being chemically attacked by the glue itself, causing premature failure and production downtime.
Utilizing it’s knowledge of products in similar industry applications, Eclipse found a solution in just 2 days that not only provided resilient compatible seals, but an integrated replacement for the whole seal gland.
This integrated assembly spared the customer the hassle of installing seals individually.
This value-added solution is shown below:
The assembly details:
The integrated Eclipse seal carrier assembly solved the client’s headache of production downtime and gave them a clear run ahead of reliable operation. Several units were bought to cover their range of manufacturing operations into the future.
Eclipse can provide a similar solution for any viscous media sealing applications to improve your production reliability and up-time.
