The goal was the determination of the DeltaV-Seal's characteristics according to the Shell Specification MESC SPE 85/300 (dated February 2019): Procedure and Technical Specification for Type Acceptance Testing (TAT of Gaskets)

The Shell Specification MESC SPE 85/300 describes several testing procedures for the evaluation of the gasket's compressibility and the tightness characteristics of the gasket material at ambient and elevated temperature.

In this process 14 different test were performed in respect of the Shell approval:

  • Shell leakage test at ambient temperature (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.2)

  • Shell leakage test at 400℃ (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.2)

  • Compression test at ambient temperature (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.4: EN 13555)

  • Compression test at 400℃ (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.4: EN 13555)

  • Relaxation test at ambient temperature (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.4: EN 13555)

  • Relaxation test at 400℃ MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.4: EN 13555)

  • Leakage test (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.4: EN 13555)

  • HOTT Shell cycle test at 400℃ (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.5)

  • Hot Blowout Test at 400℃ (MESC SPE 85/300 - 3.3.6)
