Darcy Beaumont has invented a new type of gasket with improved profile that also features superior wear resistance and a wear sensor. Now, he is looking to raise $40,000 CAD via Kickstarter to start manufacturing Profiled Wear Resistant Gasket.
Edmonton, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/08/2015 --Inventor Darcy Beaumont firmly believes that Profiled Wear Resistant Gasket can be a revolutionary solution to leading edge wear in piping systems. High slurry piping systems are commonly lined or coated to protect them from the abrasive wear of the slurry. These liners and coatings create a gap at the pipe joint which causes many issues. Misalignment is also a common problem in piping systems.
These two inadequacies often led to the following problems:
-Premature wearing of the piping system
-Increased cost to the owner and operator of the piping system
-Potential for a catastrophic system failure leading to an environmental disaster
-Huge safety concerns for maintenance personnel
-Increased consumption of resources
About Profiled Wear Resistant Gasket
Profiled Wear Resistant Gasket, an invention by Darcy Beaumont, promises to offer a single solution to all these concerns. Firstly, it is capable of filling the gaps at the pipe joints to provide a smooth transition. Wear Sensor is another extraordinary feature of Profiled Wear Resistant Gasket. By adding the Wear Sensor, it is possible to effectively monitor the piping system's liners or coating. Most importantly, the owner or operator can keep an eye on the coating without opening the piping system. As a result, they will be able to significantly reduce the risk for maintenance personnel and the required man-hours for inspection.
Profiled Wear Resistant Gasket has received very positive feedback from a number of companies including Exxon Mobil, Suncor, Syncrude, Imperial, Shell, Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. and many others. Inspired by the positive feedback from these companies, Darcy Beaumont is now looking to start mass producing Profiled Wear Resistant Gasket.
Darcy has just started a Kickstarter campaign to meet all his expenses for this project. Proceeds from this campaign will be allocated to developing the molds to build this product. This project will only be funded if at least $40,000 is pledged by July 5, 2015.
