CDI Energy Products Releases New Design Guide at 2014 Offshore Technology Conference

New Design Guide for OptiSeal(R) Components Offers Complete Customization for Performance-Critical, Spring-Energized Sealing Solutions and High-Performance Packing Configurations

HUMBLE, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- CDI Energy Products is pleased to announce the official release of its updated OptiSeal® design guide for spring-energized sealing solutions at this year's Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas. Exhibiting in booth 3126, CDI technical sales staff will give several presentations on the use of customizable spring-energized sealing solutions at 1:30 P.M May 5th-7th.

The 23 page, full-color design guide aids in the design and configuration of OptiSeal® systems, assisting end users in the selection of materials, seal geometries, and spring-energizers for application compatibility. As a versatile sealing solution, common upstream oil and gas applications include valves, pumps, and downhole tools, as well as wellheads and BOP components.

For nearly 40 years, CDI has offered a range of customized sealing solutions for the most demanding applications found in the upstream oil and gas industry. Available as singular sealing components or robust packing configurations and assemblies, the OptiSeal® system has been a sealing solution of choice by leading OEM's and service companies.

"Incorporating the past decade of advancements in sealing, the updated OptiSeal® design guide will assist engineers as they design sealing systems capable of solving complex challenges," Kurt Hayden, Director of Technology for the Fenner Advanced Sealing Technologies division.

Through the careful material selection, OptiSeal® components can be customized from a range of API-, NACE-, ISO-, and NORSOK-approved materials as per the specific needs of a given application. Found in stem packing, firesafe assemblies, or available as seat seals, each OptiSeal® component can be designed for issues such as differential pressures, potential misalignment, and extrusion gaps, as well as static and dynamic applications.

"This design guide is an example of how we strive to provide our customers with the tools required to design performance-critical components that enhance their products," Stephen Smith, P.E., CDI Energy Products Engineering Manager.
