HUMBLE, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- CDI Energy Products is pleased to announce the official release of its updated OptiSeal® design guide for spring-energized sealing solutions at this year's Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Texas. Exhibiting in booth 3126, CDI technical sales staff will give several presentations on the use of customizable spring-energized sealing solutions at 1:30 P.M May 5th-7th.
The 23 page, full-color design guide aids in the design and configuration of OptiSeal® systems, assisting end users in the selection of materials, seal geometries, and spring-energizers for application compatibility. As a versatile sealing solution, common upstream oil and gas applications include valves, pumps, and downhole tools, as well as wellheads and BOP components.
For nearly 40 years, CDI has offered a range of customized sealing solutions for the most demanding applications found in the upstream oil and gas industry. Available as singular sealing components or robust packing configurations and assemblies, the OptiSeal® system has been a sealing solution of choice by leading OEM's and service companies.
"Incorporating the past decade of advancements in sealing, the updated OptiSeal® design guide will assist engineers as they design sealing systems capable of solving complex challenges," Kurt Hayden, Director of Technology for the Fenner Advanced Sealing Technologies division.
Through the careful material selection, OptiSeal® components can be customized from a range of API-, NACE-, ISO-, and NORSOK-approved materials as per the specific needs of a given application. Found in stem packing, firesafe assemblies, or available as seat seals, each OptiSeal® component can be designed for issues such as differential pressures, potential misalignment, and extrusion gaps, as well as static and dynamic applications.
"This design guide is an example of how we strive to provide our customers with the tools required to design performance-critical components that enhance their products," Stephen Smith, P.E., CDI Energy Products Engineering Manager.

Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for ‘normal’ companies without hyper-scale resources. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, David Cauthron, founder and chief executive officer of Nimboxx, will discuss the evolution of virtualization (hardware, application, memory, storage) and how commodity / open source hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) so...

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the ...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
