Crafting Superior Custom Seals in Three Steps


At Wyatt Seal, we pride ourselves on being more than just a distributor of high-quality industrial seals; we're also a manufacturer. Many clients turn to us when faced with challenges they cannot resolve using standard off-the-shelf O-rings or sealing products. Our custom-made seals often provide the solution they've been searching for.

What sets us apart is not only our ability to create custom seals but also our commitment to delivering excellence through a well-rounded approach. With a good level of raw materials in stock, we ensure a reliable supply chain. Our in-house domestic manufacturing facilities enable us to maintain strict quality control, resulting in consistently superior products. Short lead times are a hallmark of our service, allowing you to meet your project deadlines with confidence. Additionally, we excel in providing custom modifications to existing profiles, tailoring seals precisely to your requirements.

The process of creating a custom industrial seal is a well-established practice at Wyatt Seal, backed by years of experience in design, production, and global order fulfillment. Our approach to creating a custom seal involves three key steps, which are outlined below.


Step One: Design and Engineering

In the initial phase of our process at Wyatt Seal, we dedicate our expertise to ensuring this critical step is meticulously and efficiently managed. Typically, clients approach us with specific challenges such as premature pump failures, gland overfills, or excessive pressure purges. Our team collaborates closely with clients to conduct a thorough assessment of the issue and formulate a tailored solution. This may involve recommending new materials, devising highly specific designs, or suggesting process improvements. As one of the most experienced names in industrial seals, we take pride in our ability to understand the broader context. Once the problem is accurately diagnosed, our team works diligently to draft the optimal solution for the given application.


Step Two: Prototyping and Manufacturing

Recognizing the impact of downtime on your expenses, we swiftly transition from custom seal design approval to the prototyping stage. Meticulous attention to detail during prototyping guarantees that your final product aligns precisely with your expectations. After your approval of our custom prototype, our manufacturing line seamlessly springs into action, producing the required quantity of seals tailored to 

your specific job requirements.


Step Three: Fulfillment and Support

Once your custom seal solution is ready for deployment, we promptly arrange its shipment to minimize any disruptions to your processes. At Wyatt Seal, we're committed to ensuring that we never hinder your operations. Our dedication to customer service goes beyond delivering packages; we believe in providing ongoing support. We deeply value assessing the performance of your custom seal solution post-implementation, which enables us to continually enhance our offerings and better serve our valued customers. You can rely on us to be readily available whenever you need our assistance because in the realm of industrial manufacturing, the demand for improved solutions can arise at any time.
