VOD O-RING SEAL - endless O-ring seal for Vacuum Oxygen Decarburization chambers


Vacuum oxygen decarburization chamber



VOD O-ring seal insulation

Vacuum oxygen decarburization (VOD) – decarburization in controlled oxygen atmospheres inside VOD chambers – is an important metallurgic process in stainless steel refining.

We have developed a special vacuum seal for extremely harsh conditions that occur inside these VOD chambers (high temperatures, chemicals, heavy weight, molten steel residue …). A large O-ring (endless design) enables simple, fast and safe mounting onto the VOD chamber. It is also long lasting, economic and efficient.

Our references are happy customers from the SS melting sector.
