PXL has become a preferred partner of major European design and construction companies thanks to its involvement in all steps of the sealing process.
+ From expertise to design
+ Expertise and installation on site
+ MD WAY™ method :
vulcanization, molding on site
Our applications : Hydro Energy (turbine groups, gates, penstocks, control servomotors), wind generators, offshore platforms
Expertise is one of the main added values offered by PXL. It guarantees success, as good expertise allows to consider all parameters related with the sealing, strength and wear of the seal. Expertise can be provided remotely or on-site for more safety.
The study consists in validating the client specification (input data: dimensions, temperature, pressure, speed, fluid in contact, mechanical environment, application, fitting, movement, housing and offsetting). It also allows to offer a suitable sealing solution, by recommending profiles existing at PXL or creating a particular application requiring to design a new sealing system (profile or material or both). Our sealing systems are designed under 3D CAD software before being produced.
PXL products are certified ISO 9001 and submitted to a highly controlled internal manufacturing process.
To produce its seals, PXL uses materials which are proven, tracked, validated and developed specifically for its applications.
Workstation ergonomics are considered in product quality, to ensure each step in the manufacturing process allows to check the seal (quality/aspect traceability, dimensional check, etc.)
Because of the nature of its markets, PXL specializes in small and tailor-made series, our teams have an extensive background in producing strategic seals and customized profiles.
PXL’s production capacity also allows to produce large series on a same model, whether standard or specific.
The second specialty of PXL in terms of manufacturing is the production of one-piece junction-free large size seals, using a hot molding process without adding material
For shipping, the seals are packaged individually with suited protections. PXL provides clients with seal storage and mounting procedures. PXL also ensures delivery traceability, and according to the level of emergency, is mobilized to shorten your delivery times (Express shipping, parcel taxi or other)
Fitting on-site is a delicate operation requiring accuracy and know-how. PXL travels throughout the world to provide this service to our clients. This service is increasingly appreciated, even more so considering PXL holds the patent of the the MD WAY™ method allowing to change a seal on-site by vulcanization without material addition: the most reliable method available today.
PXL applies a permanent improvement and innovation policy. A broad part of our R&D resources are dedicated to several fields :
