BHR Group’s 25th International Conference on Fluid Sealing


Manchester, UK
4th - 6th March 2020

Sealing systems have become a major success story. Once everyone knew where a seal was fitted and how to change it. Now seals are usually installed well away from view and only come to the attention of end users in the very rare event of a leakage occurring. This has been achieved through improvements in design, material developments and taking a systems approach where all components, such as metal interfaces, are considered.

However, the challenges for seal operation continue to become more extreme. We have competing demands of pressures, temperatures, chemicals, restrictions on leakage, requirements for ‘fit and forget’, self-monitoring, maintenance prediction, energy efficiency and even the concept of self-adjusting seals.

The conference offers the opportunity for Systems and Process Engineers, Materials Technologists, equipment operators and end users to update themselves on developing technologies, to meet world experts on sealing systems, to learn from applications, case studies and practices and to discuss opportunities with service and product suppliers.

The call for papers for Fluid Sealing 2020 is now open! You have until 2nd September 2019 to submit your abstract for consideration.

Abstracts should include a title and be approximately 300 words.
Contributions may be academic research, industrial research or practical case studies.
All submissions will be peer reviewed; this review will take account of originality, relevance and likely interest to delegates.

Abstracts are to be submitted by email to confx1@bhrgroup.com

BPMA members are entitled to a discount from this year's delegate fee, contact confx1@bhrgroup.com for more information!

In addition to the conference, BHR will be holding a pre conference course on Tuesday 3rd March!

Course title:
Practical Considerations on Sealing Duties and Reliability

Course overview:
This half day training course on sealing operation and reliability has been specifically constructed to support engineers in the design, operation and maintenance of fluid handling equipment. who are not sealing experts.

Seals generally are a small proportion of the total process equipment cost. However, its performance is critical to the functioning of the machines, process and plant. Advance considerations in the design stage and good installation are key for the success of process operation. Attendees to this course will be presented with real-life industrial sealing guidance.

Conference Attendees - £100.00
Non-Conference Attendees - £200.00
Offers available for companies sending more than one attendee
