BHR Group's 24th Conference on Fluid Sealing

7th-8th March 2018, Manchester, UK

Sealing systems have become a major success story. Historically everyone knew where a seal was fitted and how to change it. Now seals are usually installed well away from view and only come to the attention of end users in the very rare event of a leakage occurring. This has been achieved through improvements in design, material developments and taking a systematic approach where all components, such as metal interfaces, are considered.

However, challenging seal operation continues to become more extreme. We have competing demands of pressures, temperatures, chemicals, restrictions on leakage, requirements for ‘fit and forget’, self-monitoring, maintenance prediction, energy efficiency and even the concept of self-adjusting seals.

The conference offers the opportunity for Systems and Process Engineers, Materials Technologists, Equipment Operators and End Users to update themselves on developing technologies, to meet world experts on sealing systems, learn from applications, case studies and practices and to discuss opportunities with service and product suppliers.

Fluid Sealing 2018 will be held in Manchester, UK, a city that is passionate about engineering and attracts the curious, innovative and ambitious.
