Rotordynamics-Seal Research is pioneer of innovative seal technology. Seal research and development activities at RSR have resulted in the successful introduction of validated design and analysis tools for labyrinth and damping seals for both liquid and gaseous flow applications. The staff at RSR is unrivaled in its track record of developing and introducing into industry innovative seal technology for rotordynamically critical applications. With a broad and unbiased technical perspective, RSR can provide the best seal technology for the application.
RSR's seal technology development philosophy is focused on fundamental validation of physical phenomena. When applied to seals, this approach results in intelligent designs backed by verified design software and extensive testing. RSR's unique testing capability is unmatched in the industry and enables rapid evaluation and development of seal concepts. Once a seal concept is developed, the validated software tools eliminate the need for most component testing for all future applications. RSR seal designs work "out of the box." This intelligent approach to technology development renders obsolete the "build-it-and-bust-it" approach used by others.
RSR has an extensive toolbox of seal technologies to offer. While our focus is on the design and application of annular seals for rotordynamically critical applications, our capabilities extend to face, floating ring, and brush seals. In addition, each technology is backed by extensive design software that has been validated with experimental data and design experience. When you bring your rotating machinery application to RSR you can be assured that the best technology in the world will be applied to developing, evaluating, or revising your seal design.
With a firm grasp of both the component technology and system dynamics, RSR is able to arrive at the best component design for the system. For rotordynamically critical applications, this means that the stiffness and damping characteristics of a seal may be more important that its leakage characteristics. This also extends to life considerations and the potential for rubbing. RSR is the only independent source with the design and testing experience and validated software tools required to address the critical system issues related to component design.Return To Home Page
