Sealink, Gaining Attention with Its Upgraded Technology Than Mechanical Seals’ Amid Booming Petrochemical Industry
Although the global pandemic “Corona Virus 19” has deflated most industries, some industries, such as marine and electric products, are experiencing rapid growth, and the petrochemical industry which producing chemical products with coal or natural gas as the resource is also one of them. These particular cases are because of the surprise cold wave and production line down by the virus caused decreased the number of supply while the number of demand is unchanged.
Following the rising stock prices of chemical-related companies, it is expected that the demand is going to increase, and companies are focusing on enhancing their technology in petrochemical and fine chemical fields. Therefore, Sealink is also drawing attention as a promising company by inventing ‘S-SEAL’ which is made of domestic components and has improved performance than conventional mechanical seals.
Sealink leading by CEO RHEE who has worked on materials/parts fields for twenty-seven years has rapidly grown from 2014 with various patent registrations and applications, including 9 domestic patent registrations, 10 overseas patent registrations, 6 domestic patent applications, and 9 overseas patent applications. And this growth is a result of accumulating specialized technical skills by designing and manufacturing the sealing devices that are necessary for the petrochemical process for sealing the inside parts and blocking foreign substances’ flow in.
The Mechanical Seal which is usually used in the petrochemical industry has face contact theory, so it has a wide range of friction areas with a rotating shaft. Therefore, for smooth rotating motion, using lubricants is needed; however, it could cause product contamination and explosion and require extra space for the installation.
On the other hand, ‘S-Seal’ which has less friction area than the Mechanical Seal can smoothly rotate without lubricants, and the various operating condition is acceptable, including vacuum and pressure circumstances. Thus, it could build an economic and safe environment in initial installation and maintenance compared to the conventional.
CEO RHEE said "S-Seal could ensure safety and efficiency in the petrochemical industry by applying to various equipment such as stirrers and reactors, mixtures, crystals, dryers, and solvents. And Sealink will continuously research and develop, and rapidly providing the devices that are needed by the promising industries to become a recognized company with its technology.”
