Markets Served

Bal Seal Engineering products improve the performance of liquid handling, chromatography, and diagnostic equipment. The company's Bal Seal(r) spring-energized seals ensure

performance accuracy and product consistency in multi-channel pipettors, and also enable designers of HPLC, UHPLC, SFC, and diagnostic pumps to answer end-user demand for better throughput, sample resolution, and reduced equipment downtime. The company's Bal Spring(r) canted coil springs ground and efficiently transfer electrical current in mass spectrometers and other spectroscopy instruments.

Major Products/Services

Bal Seal Engineering designs seals that deliver reliable, long-term performance in liquid chromatography pumps, and springs with mechanical fastening and electrical conducting properties. The company's reciprocating flange seal combines the Bal Spring(r) energizer with advanced polymer formulations to promote more uniform wear and longer service life. In UHPLC pressures of 15,000 PSI and above at temperatures up to 80 °C, it seals consistently for millions of cycles. The canted coil Bal Spring(r) enables mass spec designers to achieve constant ion alignment, no contamination, more accurate m/z measurement and minimal downtime.
