Our custom-engineered sealing solutions ensure the safe and reliable operation of a broad range of aerospace and defense equipment. For instance, Our low-friction spring-energized seal made from SP83HT material protects sensitive optoelectronics inside a helicopter gimbal, or "pod." A Bal Seal spring-energized custom face seal and UHMWPE S31 Series seal protect the optics in a rifle scope from potential damage caused by seawater and harsh weather. And a Bal Seal K-Series seal on the aileron actuator of a Reaper UAV keeps lubricants in and contaminants out.

The Future of Mass Spectrometry

Mass spectrometry is the workhorse of analytical chemistry. It performs the analysis of the sample, making mass spec equipment an essential part of the analytical instrumentation market. A recent shift in the laboratory landscape, though, is forcing a change in the size and functionality of mass spec equipment. Laboratories are requiring shorter testing times with faster throughput in a smaller footprint, and these new demands are driving the market to develop smaller, higher performance systems.

Traditionally, mass spec systems have been used for routine testing in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, food safety, petrochemicals, and environmental analysis. Mass spec equipment typically performs one task slowly with a retention time ranging from five minutes to 10 hours, depending on the type of test and molecules analyzed.
