Energy Industry Uses for Rubber
In the energy industry, where demanding environments, extreme conditions, and stringent safety requirements are prevalent, rubber products demonstrate their exceptional properties and capabilities. Whether it’s sealing solutions for maintaining integrity and preventing leaks, insulating materials for electrical power systems, vibration dampening components for stability, or chemical-resistant materials for protection against corrosive substances, rubber products provide essential support to the industry’s diverse needs.
Our range of rubber products cater to the specific requirements of the energy sector, ensuring reliable performance and longevity even in the harshest operating conditions. With a deep understanding of the industry’s challenges and a commitment to excellence, we deliver rubber solutions that meet the highest standards of quality, reliability, and safety.
Insulation for Electrical Power Systems
Rubber materials serve as effective insulators in electrical power systems. They are utilized in electrical substations and power transmission networks to provide insulation for high-voltage equipment. These components include insulating mats, gaskets, seals, bushings, and connectors, among others. These rubber insulating materials protect against electrical conductivity, ensuring the safe and reliable distribution of electricity.
Vibration Damping and Shock Absorption
Electrical power systems, especially generators and transformers, can generate significant vibrations and mechanical stresses. Rubber components such as mounts, isolators, and vibration pads help mitigate these effects by providing vibration damping and shock absorption. Mosites Rubber offers a range of rubber solutions specifically designed for vibration isolation, reducing the transmission of vibrations and minimizing the risk of damage to sensitive equipment.
Enhancing Wind Turbine Manufacturing
The wind energy sector is rapidly growing as a clean and renewable source of power generation, making use of rubber and its beneficial properties in a variety of ways. Within this industry, rubber products from play a crucial role in both the manufacturing and stability of wind turbine structural components.
During the manufacturing of wind turbine blades and other composite components, the vacuum infusion method is employed to ensure optimal material distribution and eliminate voids. Specifically, Mosites Rubber offers reusable silicone vacuum blankets that have emerged as a valuable tool for the vacuum infusion process. These vacuum blankets serve as flexible and durable barriers, sealing the mold and creating an airtight seal to facilitate the infusion process. By optimizing resin flow and minimizing air entrapment, the use of our silicone vacuum blankets helps ensure the production of high-quality wind turbine components with exceptional strength and reliability.
