Kan-Seal was founded in 1999 as a niche provider of fluid sealing products to the power generation industry in the Midwest. Kan-Seal has evolved to meet the needs of its customers from becoming service oriented to more recently adding machining and manufacturing capabilities by adding a CNC mill and lathe.
Kan-Seal offers the following services:
* Machining and Manufacturing: Provides precision CNC machining and waterjet cutting technology. Kan-Seal's CNC mills and lathes utilize the latest technological innovation and are optimized and engineered to be able to handle small to large volume runs, without compromising the quality of the customer's product.
* Fluid Sealing: Provides fluid sealing products such as gasketing, valve packing, expansion joints, o-rings, and textile products. Kan-Seal specializes in reverse engineering of OEM gaskets. Kan-Seal utilizes its waterjet to custom cut OEM or standard gaskets for customers.
* Power Services: Provides maintenance and staffing services to the power generation industry. Kan-Seal has provided hundreds of both professional and craft staffing to the power generation industry to support refueling and maintenance outages. Kan-Seal also provides professionally trained FME Controllers to nuclear power plants. Other services include valve repacking, machine guard installation, and other professional services such as planners and procedure writers.
In 2017 Kan-Seal, in association with consulting engineer Tim Carty, joined Stan Deyo of (Stan Deyo.Com), in an ambitious project to capture solar electrostatic waves from our atmosphere as an alternate energy source. While discussing the new system's circuit, Stan asked Tim to design a surge protector for it in case lightning were to strike too close to the system's antenna.
It only took few hours to design the surge protector Stan requested; but we had a thought about the North Korean situation and the possibility of a nuclear High Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse (H.E.M.P.) which would get through normal surge protectors on the market. We investigated the military H.E.M.P. surge protectors to see what protection they could offer. Soon, we discovered the military standard surge protectors were only good for one H.E.M.P. before they burned out and were quite expensive.
We realized we weren't the only ones needing the H.E.M.P. protection. Other people needed H.E.M.P. and solar E.M.P. protection for their homes, cars, boats, planes and other electronic devices. We spent a few days pondering a way to make a reusable H.E.M.P. shield for homes - as well as for businesses. It had to shield every electrical device inside them. We solved the problem with a design that can take multiple H.E.M.P. strikes without failing - while being cost efficient.
It is many times more efficient than the single-use standard military design and can be fitted to the household circuit breaker box with just four wires. The device will protect homes with less than 10,000 sq. ft. of floor space serviced by a circuit breaker box. With the real possibility that North Korea, Russia or China might start WWIII, we decided to bring this technology to the market as soon as possible.
The U.S. Government is working toward protecting our electricity grid but that will not protect our homes. People will need working appliances and other electronics when power is restored whether by the power grid or by local generators - thus the EMP Shield was born...
