Greene Tweed’s FPH Seal™ – Eerste lucht- en ruimtevaartafdichting die een vuurvaste test doorstaat

KULPSVILLE, Pa.-(BUSINESS WIRE)- Greene Tweed’s FPH Seal™ voldoet aan de eisen van brandveilige testen en biedt tegelijkertijd statische afdichtingscapaciteiten in brand- en vlamwerende apparatuur, zoals aandrijfsystemen voor de omkering van de stuwkracht (TRAS), brandstofsystemen, en systemen voor straalpijpen en straalpijpen.

De FPH Seal™ ontwerpconfiguratie zorgt voor de hoogst mogelijke “gecontroleerde degradatie” en consistente testresultaten.

“Tijdens het testen ondervond de afdichting geen significante drukval of rookontwikkeling”, zegt Wally Hajduczek, Product Manager Sealing Systems voor lucht- en ruimtevaart, defensie en biowetenschappen. “Het schild hield meer dan 10 minuten lang druk tijdens de 15 minuten durende vuurvaste test.”

Greene Tweed’s FPH Seal™ – First Aerospace Seal to Pass Fireproof Testing

The FPH Seal™ design configuration allows for the highest possible “controlled degradation” and consistent testing results.

“During testing, the seal did not experience any significant pressure drops or nor produce smoke,” said Wally Hajduczek, Sealing Systems Product Manager for Aerospace, Defense, and Life Sciences. “The shield held pressure for more than 10 minutes beyond the 15-minute fireproof test.”

Greene Tweed’s FPH Seal™ is a viable alternative to heavy, bulky fire shields that are costly and easily damaged, using standard aerospace glands in accordance with AS4716 and AS5857.
