Introduction to the test fixture
As described in previous blogs, Kalsi Engineering has a 10.50” fixture for testing full scale RCD seals. This helps to avoid scaling issues that may occur when testing on smaller fixtures. For example, the thermal mass and conductivity of our 10.50” fixture is similar to an RCD mandrel, which allows more realistic testing, compared to reduced scale tests on 2.75” test

Consulting Engineering Services
Kalsi Engineering, Inc., a high technology firm, was founded in 1978 to provide consulting engineering services in the areas of research and development, design, analysis, and testing of mechanical equipment and structures. Our facilities are located in Sugar Land, Texas, approximately 17 miles from downtown Houston and easily accessible from the airports.
Kalsi Engineering has a diversified client base that includes equipment manufacturers, oilfield service companies, petrochemical plants, nuclear power plants, aerospace engineering companies, architect/engineers, industry research organizations, and government agencies. In addition to serving individual clients, we have successfully completed many joint-industry group-sponsored projects.
In addition to providing consulting engineering services, Kalsi Engineering offers rotary seal and software product lines that were originally developed to solve difficult problems associated with energy production. Our patented rotary seals are the result of our pioneering research in hydrodynamic lubrication.
Our suite of engineering software began with JarPro™ jarring analysis software, which is used to reduce the costs associated with a stuck drillstring by optimizing jarring tool placement. KVAP™, CVAP™ and LiFE™ are state-of-the art software applications that are widely used to evaluate critical valve and actuator issues in nuclear power plants.
