In the universal world of sealing solutions, reliability and ensuring as close to zero leakage as possible are critical. Often, seals are required to meet tight sealing requirements across a vast spectrum of extreme temperatures, high pressures or aggressive media. Advancements in polymer technology have been pushing the limits of these extreme conditions with other technologies, proving its capabilities in sealing performance for harsh environments as well. One of these technologies are metal seals, which can support more extreme temperature ranges and harsher environments when compared to existing polymer technologies. With Omniseal Solutions’ acquisition of American Seal and Engineering Co. (ASE) in February of this year, the business now has the best of both polymer and metal sealing worlds.
