U.S. Made Kratos® F22 O-rings and Seals Drastically Reduce Cost of Ownership.
Emeryville, California (Jan. 17th, 2012) – NuGeneration Technologies (NuGenTec) announced today the successful launch of an Ultra High Performance Elastomer (UHE). Kratos F22 elastomer has been developed and manufactured in USA to close the gap between FKM and FFKM in multiple applications. Utilizing a proprietary reinforcement known as “Interstitial Reinforcement System” or IRS, Kratos F22 elastomer incorporates fluorinated backbone and nano-fill architecture resulting in maximum service temperatures exceeding 285°C (545°F). Kratos F22R contains no metals, refractory metals or metal oxides and is ideal for contamination sensitive processes. Kratos F22W is developed for aggressive oxidizers like rocket fuel and O2/O3 rich environments where UV exposure may also be present. Kratos F22B is specially formulated for aggressive chemical and hydrocarbon processing. Kratos F22 O-rings and custom shaped seals offer outstanding value where FFKM utilization due to high cost could not be justified. Because of low coefficient of thermal expansion, F22 O-rings are drop-in replacement for existing hardware. "Multiple attempts have been made to close the gap between FKM and FFKM, but majority lack universality of use. A compound that is developed for microelectronics industry would not fare well in hydrocarbon processing. Kratos F22 is the only known gap compound that delivers universality of application” said Fred Pourmirzaie, Director of FloDynamix LLC, a div. of NuGenTec.

FloDynamix had its beginning in early 2007 with the aim of providing sealing solutions that substantially reduce cost of ownership. In Chemical & Hydrocarbon Processing, unplanned leaks and spillage due to component failures result in loss of production and cause environmental and community setbacks. Fugitive emissions from control valves as well as secondary Mechanical Seal failures in pumps endanger health & safety of employees and surrounding community. In Semiconductor, seal failures before scheduled preventive maintenance result in extended downtime with loss of production. With environmental concerns at heart, FloDynamix strives in providing the most technologically sound products that keep cost of ownership at minimum while protecting people and assets. In 2008 FloDynamix and NuGeneration Technologies joined forces to better serve the market. While trained as Engineers & Scientists, FloDynamix founders have over 50 years of combined industry experience in Oil and Gas, Chemical Processing & Electronics industries. FloDynamix’ line of products will:
• Reduce installed cost
• Reduce cost of ownership
• Improve PM cycle frequency
