OEM & MRO Gaskets
Phelps has been fabricating and supplying gaskets to Original Equipment Manufacturers for over 45 years. Today we service manufacturers of instruments, strainers, compressors, electronics and computers, centrifugal pumps, sound control units, gearboxes, boilers, hand tools, cooling towers and the list goes on. OEM gasket applications most often have very specific and stringent criteria. Usually drawings are supplied with exacting material, specifications and tolerances
Maintenance Repair Orders are a large part of our gasket business. Whether it's a Power Plant, Food Processor, Steel Mill or Hotel Boiler Rooms that need standard flange or special gaskets fast, we deliver. Often processing or manufacturing equipment needs a replacement gasket and quick. We have over 15,000 steel rule dies and have the tools and equipment to make additional ones as needed.
We collect application data such as temperature, pressure, media and its pH, flange size, configuration and finish, number of bolts, size, grade and location. From this information we are able to determine the available gasket load. With the material selection and the tolerances required we determine weather a laser or other type die is need.
We die cut, waterjet cut, laser cut, mold, vulcanize, hand build and fabricate all types of compressed, elastomeric, fiber and textile materials.
