CASE STUDIES

  • O-rings for Gas Sweetening Valves

    Kalrez® 7090 perfluoroelastomer parts offer an excellent combination of chemical, Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) resistance , and high temperature resistance for O-ring applications in gas sweetening valves that handle glycol-based solvents.

  • Kalrez® O-rings for Hydrogen Sulfide Removal

    Amine units for hydrogen sulfide removal (H2S) at high temperatures use elastomers like Kalrez® Spectrum™ 6380 FFKM parts for resistance to amines. 6380 helps extend MTBR of valves and pumps in amine service.

  • O-rings in Pressurized Water Reactor

    Due to the combination of extreme temperature, pressure and chemical environments, Kalrez® 0090 was used in a series of mechanical seals employed in the operation of boiler feed pumps for pressurized water reactors.

  • Sealing Collaboration Pays Dividends in Chamber Cleaning

    Chamber cleaning with NF3 / O2 plasma increased maintenance at Spansion due to seal erosion. Kalrez® 9100 parts improved productivity and reduced cost-of-ownership. Kalrez® 9100 parts were successfully qualified in both thin films and dry etch tools.

  • Parts for Amine Resistance

    A major chemical company switched to Kalrez® Spectrum™ 6380 perfluoroelastomer parts to improve amine resistance & extend mean time between repairs. Improvement of up to 3x in MTBR achieved in a mechanical seal for hot, aggressive amines.
