Tidal and Wave Energy

Tidal and Wave EnergyTidal and wave energy schemes are still in their infancy. Although a number of large schemes are proposed for sites across the world, civil engineering works costs combine with local ecological concerns to hamper progress.

Our expertise in high-integrity fluid sealing, together with our ability to develop and manufacture customer-specific systems, will help to ensure the long-term viability of plant and prevent pollution of seawater by lubricant seepage.

Products and services of specific benefit include...

  • Tidal Barrages
  • Tidal Turbines
  • Wave Energy Systems

Hydraulic Seal Selector

Our Hydraulic Seal Selector will help you find, swiftly and simply, the Chevron®, Shallex® and Lofilm® standard size multi-lip products that match the dimensions of your hydraulic equipment. The selector is intuitive to use, the first instruction is to select either mm or inches, you are then asked to insert the rod/shaft or cylinder/bore diameter, which creates a list of all matching Chevron and Lofilm standard products together with application suitability and part for endless or split types.
