A winter challenge: Diaphragms in extreme conditions

Are harsh winter conditions putting a strain on your equipment’s performance? Downtime and malfunctioning components in extreme cold can be costly and disrupt your entire operation.

Last winter, one of our OEM clients faced an unexpected challenge. Their equipment, operating in one of the coldest regions on earth, started to fail as temperatures plummeted to -60°C (-76°F). Downtime was mounting, costs were escalating, and the entire operation was at risk.

The Call for Help

They reached out to us, desperate for a solution. Understanding the critical nature of their situation, we quickly mobilized our team. We recommended our high-performance rubber diaphragms, designed specifically to handle extreme cold. The client was skeptical but hopeful—this was their last shot before more drastic measures were needed.

The Turning Point: Testing the Limits

We installed our diaphragms and closely monitored their performance. In the controlled chaos of a freezing environment, our diaphragms were subjected to intense pressure variations and mechanical stresses. It wasn't just a test; it was a fight for operational survival.

Unexpected Resilience: The Results

The results were nothing short of remarkable. Our diaphragms retained over 95% of their original flexibility and tensile strength. There were no cracks, no signs of degradation—just unwavering performance. The client watched as their equipment came back to life, operating smoothly even in the face of such extreme cold

To avoid these manufacturing defects, it is important to work with an experienced rubber extrusion manufacturer who can identify and address these issues. By choosing a reliable manufacturer and keeping an eye out for these common defects, you can ensure that your extruded rubber profiles meet the highest quality standards and perform as intended.
