RED ENGINEERING PUTS NEW RUBBER PADS TO THE TEST
FAST track testing services provided by RED Engineering have helped to confirm the viability of new rubber coated tensioner pads under development for the offshore energy sector.
The North East-based firm of engineers completed the work for Metflex Precision Mouldings Ltd, which needed to validate the performance characteristics of its new EM range of natural rubbers.
The project has involved a small-scale test rig to complete a set of comparative friction coefficient tests of a 50mm x 50mm x 5mm sample against a polyurethane (PU) section already in use for tensioner track pads.
