Around the world, designers and manufacturers of equipment used to produce, store, and distribute energy trust our springs and seals to provide superior performance in the most demanding environments.
Products for Energy
Bal Spring® Canted Coil Spring
Our spring mechanically fastens, conducts electricity, and shields sensitive electronics from EMI/RFI. Its independent coils, which serve as multiple contact points for optimal current carrying capability, ensure consistent, reliable connection—even under shock and vibration.
- Superior conductivity and power density
- Compact, space-saving profile
- Multifunctional for lighter, simpler designs
- Customizable insertion/removal forces
Bal Seal® Spring Energized Seal
Our seals are precision-machined from PTFE and other premium polymers, and they’re engineered to deliver longer service life and more equipment uptime. Their spring energizers ensure even, consistent wear. Their jacket materials can be customized, and elements (such as locking rings and backups) can be added to meet specific requirements.
- Controllable friction forces
- Excellent media and temperature resistance
- Wear-regulating spring energizer
Oil & Gas Applications
Power Generation, Transmission & Distribution Applications
Energy Industry Achievements
Achieving Near-Zero Emissions
Each year, oil and gas operations emit >48M metric tons of methane. Our Bal Seal® helps stop these fugitive emissions by supporting valve designs that surpass API 622, API 641, and ISO 15848 standards.
Measuring Up to NORSOK
The Norwegian Oil Industry Association sets some of world’s toughest standards for oilfield sealing. Our PTFE and PEEK seal materials comply with NORSOK M-710 which evaluates H2S performance.
Validating With KEMA
Respected test authority KEMA subjected our Bal Spring® to rigorous short-circuit current exposure and cycling. The spring withstood 65,000 amps, confirming our own internal calculations.
