Technetics Group is the leader of custom-designed High Performance Sealing Solutions in Demanding Environments with applications in the nuclear, oil and gas, life sciences, aerospace, semiconductor and other industries. Through the combination of eight of the world’s best-known sealing and critical component design and manufacture businesses comes Technetics Group. Technetics Group brings together brand names that are used throughout the world in critical markets. Our brands include: HELICOFLEX® resilient metal seals, ORIGRAF® graphite seals, BELFAB® edge-welded metal bellows, and FELTMETAL™ abradable seals and acoustic media.
The high level of sealing achieved with KENOL®joints is based upon the principle of controlled plastic deformation.
With KENOL® it is achieved by causing the plastic deformation of a thin metal sheet, compressed between two surfaces of superior hardness, one flat and one with a rounded boss.
This metal sheet, called the “seal cup” enables perfect contact at both interfaces thus, ensuring high sealing level.
The plastic deformation of the seal cup only occurs over a small area which allows a lower compression load to achieve sealing.
