Deublin Company was founded in 1945 by Luke Deubler and Dick Linn. The name of the company is a combination of their two last names. Deublin’s entree into the Rotating Union market was its unique design that incorporated balanced mechanical seals. During this time, the most popular type of sealing mechanism found in the industry was pressure type seals, which relied on the system pressure keeping wearing surfaces mated.
Increased speeds of various equipment, and specifically printing presses, resulted in rapid wear of pressure type seals. Luke designed a mechanical seal into a rotating union. This design was immediately accepted by the industry and so began the growth of Deublin Company.
