In the clean-room environment, seal integrity is critical when mitigating concerns such as air leaks, ingredient accumulation, gasket fragmentation and the development of microorganisms that can lead to significant downtime and large-scale safety concerns. Technetics is a trusted technology partner that works with you to create a custom solution that tackles the toughest of sealing and component problems within the industry and can be machined or engineered for your exact equipment or application needs. Our diverse sealing and component solutions range from metal seals for imaging and scanning systems and PTFE films for stent crimping tools to inflatable seals for anti-contamination applications and edge-welded metal bellows for drug delivery devices.

Providing Close Customer Relationships

Technetics is a proven supplier that takes pride in the extensive sealing expertise we offer to our customers. Our sales and engineering teams work closely with our customers from design, development, prototyping and production in determining not only what solution will best suit their needs but also ways to improve current solutions already in place. With leading in-house testing and design capabilities, we are able to tackle the most complex of sealing problems with attention to detail and provide peace-of-mind to our customers in ensuring the integrity of their systems and ultimately the prevention of catastrophic events that can affect human lives.

Sealing Solutions that Reduce Leakage and Contamination

Technetics solutions, such as CEFIL’AIR® and BIO-GUARDIAN® inflatable seals, are developed with anti-contamination sealing materials. Our seals prevent outside air from passing through a closed door, while also deterring the development of microorganisms on the surface of seals in applications such as:

  • Isolators
  • Sterilizers
  • Dryers
  • Washers
  • Autoclaves

Our seals also ensure the reduction of downtime caused by cleaning and replacing seals, prevent seal and valve contamination as well as minimize waste of high-value pharmaceutical ingredients by impeding costly leakages.

Unmatched Expertise in Edge-Welded Metal Bellows Technology

With over 50 years of experience in developing custom-engineered BELFAB® edge-welded metal bellows for a wide range of medical applications, Technetics is a trusted partner that work closely with our customers in the manufacturing of sophisticated bellows solutions that meet stringent leakage requirements and reduce operational safety risks.

Recent customer story: A major medical manufacturer came to us looking for a supplier that could meet their capacity needs of high quality bellows for a diabetes pump application as their previous supplier could not handle the capacity requirements. After working closely with the manufacturer to understand their needs as well as their current solution, the Technetics team was able to:

  • Redesign the customer’s previous bellows solution that would allow for easier manufacturability and thus the ability to produce at higher capacity within the timeframe that was required
  • Work with regulatory affairs to ensure the customer was able to get the new design approved.
  • Develop a close working relationship with the customer and provided extensive in-house technical knowledge
  • Solve a problem that our competitors could not and ultimately provided a high quality solution that met the needs of the customer

Critical Applications for Edge-Welded Metal Bellows

Our high-precision, bellows solutions are useful in a variety of critical applications, including:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Cochlear Implants
  • Drug Delivery
  • Infusion Pumps
  • Insulin Dispersion
  • Pain Management
  • Spasticity Control
  • Vacuum Dryers
