Mechanical seal systems in Montreal


Fematics Canada traces its roots back to 1901, with the founding of Huhn seals in Sweden. Huhn decided to open a branch in Canada, and Montreal was selected to establish their offices, in 1961.

Eleven years later, in 1972, the North American branch of Huhn formed a separate company under the name of Tyton and went on to set new standards for turbine seals worldwide, improving greatly on the products of the former Swedish company. In the years wich followed, Tyton developed several types of cartridge seals and developed expertise in custom seals for a wide variety of industries, including hydro, marine and industrial type mechanical seals.

In 1993, Tyton was bought out by new owners, and changed its name to Fematics Canada Inc. Due to the name recognition, the Tyton name and logo is still used today, and is internationally renowned.

Today, we feel 55 years young, and we are a steadily growing company, with 45% of our products exported worldwide. Complete new seals, refurbishments, custom designs, in house manufacturing, site installation supervision are only a few of the advantages you will find at Tyton Fematics.

With a staff of over twenty (20) dedicated employees, we can provide you with quality craftsmanship, quick delivery and cost effective water sealing solutions.

Fematics Canada Inc. is the name to remember for reliable mechanical seal systems.


Limited Warranty Policy

Tyton Fematics warrants all seals to be free from defects in materials or workmanship for a period of twelve (12) months from the date of installation, or eighteen (18) months from the date of invoice, whichever is earlier. At our discretion, we will repair or replace seals which show such defects.

This warranty can be extended to thirty-six (36) months, in the case where we supply a complete sealing solution; including a filtration system (a hydraulic fluid analysis can be mandatory).

This warranty applies to all seals, whether new or factory reconditioned, as long as the seals have never been reconditioned by a third party.

This warranty does not cover loss of profit, downtime, and similar consequential damages. Warranty is limited to the amount of contract.
