Chemical processing applications and parts
Chemical processing applications use pumps, valves, reactors, tanks, flange joints and metering devices to transport, gauge and control process media. Many of them operate at extreme temperatures and make contact with corrosive chemicals and harsh acids or bases.
Minor Rubber provides custom rubber parts for chemical applications specially designed to excel in a variety of chemical processing operating conditions. Combining a vast range of high-quality materials with decades of knowledge and expertise, our expert team can help you extend equipment lifespan, improve product output and reduce downtime by strengthening sealing capabilities at your facility.
With an extensive inventory of stock rubber parts, expedited delivery is available. We also offer turnkey Original Equipment Manufacture services and can private label products for fabrication kits or retail sale.
Common chemical processing items we manufacture include:
Standard rubber products aren’t always best suited for chemical processing applications, which regularly carry sensitive, hazardous or unstable process media. Underperforming parts can fail over time due to temperature, fading, tearing, abrasions, chemicals or other factors.
Minor Rubber can custom fabricate high-performance rubber solutions that offer better reliability, increased service life, lower ownership costs and improved operating margins. Our method involves:
- Consulting with your team to gain full understanding of the product and its intended uses
- Identifying the rubber compound best suited for the product’s particular needs
- Pinpointing adhesives that create the strongest bond when rubber is joined to metals or other materials
Minor Rubber can handle complex designs and extensive customer requirements. In-house tooling capabilities enable us to manufacture accurate tooling quickly and economically for precision production of your custom part. Our custom rubber fabrication services include the following processes:
- Compression molding
- Transfer molding
- Injection molding
- Latex dip molding
- Profile extrusion
- Tubing extrusion
- Washer extrusion
- Gasket extrusion
- Extrusion of complex shapes, which include long lengths on reels or coils and fabricated with holes, notches and special cut-outs.
Material type matters
Understanding the chemicals that come into contact with components in your application is extremely important, because rubber degrades rapidly when not compatible with the environment or media. With a wide range of rubber materials and extensive chemical compatibility knowledge, our engineers can help determine the best rubber solution for your process.
