Saint-Gobain Seals Opens New Facility in Belgium

Saint-Gobain Seals has opened a new large diameter seal production facility at its Kontich, Belgium site in order to further improve quality and reduce lead-times significantly for large diameter, polymer OmniSeal seals. With this new production facility, Saint-Gobain Seals aims to strengthen the service to the Energy sector for applications such as FPSO turret swivels, large engineered valves, wind turbines, compressors and turbines.

The dedicated area includes a new compression-molding press, sintering ovens, a large diameter CNC lathe, bespoke flexible forming and welding technology for Meldin 5301 PEEK based components, special transportation racks and a large table for assembly and inspection. The state-of-the-art equipment operates in a climatized environment to guarantee optimal dimension consistency throughout the manufacturing process until final shipping.

The addition of the Kontich production facility follows Saint-Gobain Seals’ strategic plan to offer global support to meet emerging oil and gas market requirements and technology demands. In July 2015, they opened a technical and sales office in Houston, Texas.
