Master Packing & Rubber Co. (MPRC) has experience providing a myriad of innovative sealing solutions for harsh operating environments. Out-of-the-box, one-size-fits-all sealing products often don’t perform as well as expected. We specialize in the development and fabrication of efficient sealing solutions for unique or challenging situations, such as railcars and tankers.

Our skilled team customizes sealing solutions for a variety of industries, and this experience gives us excellent insight into the broad scope of available options for any given situation. We incorporate computer finite element analysis into each project to simulate real-world conditions and test how designs will perform, allowing us to identify design flaws or material incompatibilities in advance of physical production.

Services for the Railroad Industry

Rail transport operations can’t afford poor seals that will leak during transit. Our skilled team of engineers can develop comprehensive sealing solutions for rail equipment that will be compatible with any fluids or materials being transported.

We cut our gaskets and seals using a computer-controlled Atom Flash cutter, which eliminates expensive upfront tool and die fabrication costs. With easy setup and high-output capabilities, we can begin production on most orders within hours of completing or receiving the CAD file. We offer rapid manufacturing on most orders and our processes are environmentally friendly. With in-house rubber molding, we can also customize rubber moldings for specific application needs.

We have extensive experience formulating materials rail gaskets and sealants, such as CG0, CG1, CG2, and CGX, among others. Our sealing solutions are ideal for companies that don’t want to use expensive OEM parts or operations where compliance with OEM part requirements isn’t necessary. We offer short lead times for time-sensitive rail projects, including emergency services and same-day shipping.

Railroad Applications

Our sealing solutions can be redesigned and tailored to the needs of railroad operations. Some of the most common rail-based applications for our seals include:

  • Blower gaskets and seals
  • Engine gaskets and seals
  • Engine protector kits
  • Expansion joints
  • Heat exchanger gaskets and seals
  • Oil cooler gaskets and seals
  • Power pack rebuild kits
  • Water pump kits

We’ve served all types of rail customers, including Class 1 Railroads, short line railroads, locomotive manufacturers, pump manufacturers, and more.
