Roplan North America specializes in the design, development and manufacture of customized, tailored and innovative mechanical shaft seals for rotating machinery, specifically for pumps, mixers, agitators and compressors.  Founded in 1977 and acquired by IDEX Corporation in 2019, the company is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden with subsidiaries in the USA, UK and China.  Each location is fully staffed with engineers, sales, technical support and manufacturing personnel to fully support all of our customers in every region that we participate in.

Roplan’s modern business model is different.  Working almost exclusively with equipment manufacturers, we start by listening to your needs and then supply services, designs and delivery of sealing solutions that will achieve your goals in a rapid and flexible manner.  We are here for your every need, from equipment optimization, pushing the boundaries of equipment limitations and solving problems to helping support your end user needs such as improving performance, reducing equipment downtime as well as maintenance and energy costs.

We are highly specialized in customized seal designs and can offer sealing solutions to virtually any situation or application.  As global mechanical shaft sealing experts, we apply our methods and experience to creating seals for high-performance pumps, mixers, agitators and compressors in industries including Food and Beverage, Pharmaceuticals/Biotech, Chemical, Water Treatment/Waste Water, Mining, Pulp/Paper, Construction, Power Generation and Refrigeration.


Roplan is a problem solver through the whole value chain: from initial development phase to testing and securing the functionality to providing the service, support, renovation, redesign and manufacturing throughout the entire lifecycle.  We are flexible to every one of our partner’s needs and can supply mechanical sealing solutions for almost any situation including fully customized designs, tailored designs and OEM standard replacement type mechanical seals.

To give you an idea of our level of commitment, look at how our engineers design your seal. They start by problem-solving to track down the true source of any issues or malfunctions with your current equipment. Then, they approach the design holistically, knowing that most problems don’t exist in a vacuum, knowing that your current seal may not work properly based on how it interacts with the rest of the system or how it’s installed. From there, they can start a design project to choose the right engineered seal for the job.


With 40 years of experience in innovation and development of customized mechanical seals, we are the perfect partner for those with strong brands who want to be at the leading edge of innovation and need a partner that can match your high level of technology, innovation, and quality.

Besides our four decades of experience, what sets us apart from the rest is that engineered seals are at the core of what we do. We do not believe in a “one-size-fits-all” philosophy. You don’t have to be limited to existing or available products in a catalog. Our seals are designed and built specifically to fit your equipment and to get optimal performance out of them. Our engineered seals require less maintenance as well, which translates to less downtime.



We provide world-class technical solutions for mechanical seals—the component that’s often most critical to equipment manufacturers. But we also do this with the large company’s technological innovation and experience and the small company’s agility, speed, and personal service. The best of two worlds!

Our top three priorities are performance, manufacturing quality and cost. Our engineers are not only designing solutions to problems – they are designing solutions to optimize those priorities. We also optimize your equipment for superior performance by tailoring our solutions to fit your individual project needs and limitations. Not only do we utilize efficiency in our design process, but we also fit it to your equipment’s operations.

Don’t let a seal from a catalog be the limiting part of your equipment.


We can move fast to meet unexpected needs for problem-solving or redesign to meet new demands, be they logistic or regulatory. Roplan can count the top pump, mixer and agitator companies in the world as their customers for over 35 years.

In addition to our customized solutions for large companies, we offer a line of OEM replacement seals for manufacturers and/or applications that don’t require customized solutions. We can also provide development and manufacturing of low volume series. In addition, we conduct our business with a sense of ethical consideration for not only our customers and suppliers but also our employees and the environment while still optimizing results for our stakeholders.

Don’t let a seal from a catalog be the limiting part of your equipment. Our goals are yours as well. We want to see you provided with the best seals on the market to help optimize your equipment. We will work with you to design a seal that meets your needs and provide you with better solutions.


Our competitors still hold on to the “one-size-fits-all” mentality that has them selling seals out of a catalog. That means that not only are the seals not designed specifically for your equipment, but they’re also not optimized for performance. And when problems do arise, they tend to be slow and unresponsive to the needs of the client.

Our service expectations are much higher. We offer hands-on, engaged support and even go so far as to make our engineers available to help with existing equipment installations, repairs, and maintenance.



We turn loyalty around in our unique business model. Not only do we have loyal customers who return to us regularly, but we’re loyal to our customers when it comes to their products. We don’t compete with our customers by selling the seals they order to other customers.

When you design a seal with Roplan, only you will have the right to re-sell the seals to your customers. We don’t disclose information about our clients. This way, when the client sells equipment as a product to other clients, the Roplan seals are part of the designs the client patents and protects.

Our solutions give you a superior deal with a “double win”—more sales through better product performance and more sales by having total control of the aftermarket.
