Latest research work of ESPD

We have continued to work on a new Low Temperature test methodology designed to give seal specifiers better knowledge other than the material property testing often specified for Low temperature seal performance. This has involved a collaborative approach to designing the method and testing it. The results have been published and presented to the BHR Group Sealing Conference in March and is to be presented to two further conferences later this year.

We are also to extend the work from a previous project on Lifetime Prediction to offer a more reliable method utilising Compression set /CSR techniques.

One of the first major projects the group undertook was the preparation of a comprehensive paper entitled ‘Successful sealing with Elastomers’, this is now being reviewed for a potential update to include other polymeric materials.

The Division has also attracted two new potential members who have attended a divisional meeting before committing to full membership.

David Mitchell, Standards and Legislation Director, will also be briefing the Division’s next meeting on the subject of potable water approvals.
