Uniseal products replace traditional plumbing hardware with a single
injection molded unit requiring no component parts. It was designed to
solve many of the issues of pipe to tank connections. For many
industries pipe to tank seals are traditionally among the most complex
connections to manufacture. Traditional seals require multiple parts
such as, rigid flanges, bolts, washers, o-rings, along with long
assembly times and high production costs.
“Alcryn” melt processable rubber is used to make Uniseal products
because it creates a tighter seal, can be processed faster, and is
compatible with both water and oil based materials. It also has a
coefficient of friction roughly three times greater than competing
materials, which creates a better seal overall.
The greatest asset to Uniseal products is that they are a quicker
and easier installation process. A hole is cut in the side of the tank,
and then the rubbery black Uniseal is inserted. Next, a slippery
detergent film (i.e. dish soap) is applied to the exterior of the pipe.
The pipe is then pushed through the seal completing the installation.
When the pipe is pushed through the rubber-like Uniseal from the
outside, the Uniseal becomes thin enough to allow the pipe to slip
through. With this simple design the Uniseal solves many complex
