Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) June 14, 2012
The company that keeps tens of millions of automobile interiors quiet and dry is also making life more comfortable in a much different environment: chicken coops. Jyco Sealing Technologies, a world leader in the sealing systems for car doors, moveable windows and engine compartments, announced today that it is supplying exhaust fan seals for poultry and egg production facilities.
The Jyco seal, which is made from an extruded rubber-plastic compound called TPV, replaces rubber seals that fatigue, discolor and cannot be recycled. According to Jyco, the new seals answer industry demands for reliable performance, increased durability, and improved aesthetics.
“Airflow is extremely important to livestock production,” says John McGovern, manager of Jyco’s Industrial Products Division. “Comfortable birds eat better and produce more eggs, and the exhaust system is critical to the comfort of that environment. Excessive airflow can increase the mortality rate among young birds. Too little airflow will make it too hot and reduce the birds’ weight and egg productivity.
“The new TPV exhaust fan seals last longer, conserve energy, cost less, and won’t discolor. The old seals were rubber, which would fatigue and look nasty. In any application to do with food, you want everything to be as clean, tidy and consistent as possible.”
Jyco TPV seals are better for the environment before, during and after their installation. The company processes its TPV without particulate or VOC emissions, and production scrap is directly recyclable. The new fan seals are made in part using http://www.jycosealingtechnologies.com/en/jygreen.php, technology that Jyco pioneered in 2007 to reclaim rubber from used tires and reprocess it into high performance extruded TPV sealing systems. And if the exhaust fan is ever replaced, Jyco’s seal can be recycled.
Jyco is headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and has manufacturing plants in Canada, Mexico and China. Jyco is the only supplier to have earned a Corporate TS/ISO/16949/9000 certification for Design, Testing, and Manufacturing of TPV seals.
