Abstract

The Seal Unit Device aids in the assembly process of Seal Units. A SUD enables the user to easily place Molded Seals onto Seal Subs more quickly, and with minimal physical labor and risk of injury. The Seal Unit Device is essentially a cup, collet, or socket that 1 or 2 molded seals can be placed inside of. The SUD is connected to a drill press, or any similar machining or tool that can provide a torque and or lateral push-force. The procedure for using the SUD is meant to replace the current assembly procedure for place Molded Seals onto Seal Subs. The current assembly procedure consists of: making up the molded seal onto the sub threads by hand, chain wrenching the molded seals and pushing/spinning the molded seal over the sub threads, hammering as needed, then pushing or hammering the molded seal onto the unthreaded space on the sub. The assembly procedure for use with a SUD consists of: place molded seals in SUD, place sub on drill press table, use press and place seals onto sub. Manual assembly of Seal Units is dangerous, inefficient, incredibly tedious, labor intensive, and ergonomically unsafe. This new method will save time, money, labor stress, and it is much safer.Alternate methods of invention: 1 seal and cup with screws, 2 seals in cup with countersink and latch, 2 seals in collet style cup, 2 seals with shoulder in middle for alternate grips, rings around collet style for grips, extending the stem of the cup for use with drill, extending stem or adding additional stems for stability and to make up by hand.
