Research and Development


Roplan Group has a well dedicated engineering team spread out being available in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The team work in close cooperation with our customers, providing deep understanding of the applications and providing optimal technical solutions. We are your ultimate technical resource for mechanical seals.

Design and engineering work is carried out in project form in compliance with ISO9001 in order to effectively meet your requirements. Our design criteria are continuously updated as we review input from the applications and laboratory verifications.

Routines and documents follow the spirit of “servicing the engineers” rather than controlling them. This ensures that best practices are used on every single project.

We have full state-of-the-art FEM and CFD calculation abilities for examining temperature distribution, applied stresses and structural dynamics. The numerical calculations are compared with analytical calculations and verification tests carried out in our fully equipped test laboratory. We measure all critical functions and use virtually any media according to customer needs, either in specially designed test rigs or equipment supplied by the customer.

For continuous update on machine dynamics, material technology, tribology, applied mechanics and other relevant sectors, we engage in research and collaborative work with technical universities in Sweden and abroad.
