Education: Master’s degree in aeronautical engineering, the Technion – I.I.T., Israel; Ph.D. in mechanical & aerospace engineering, Case Western Reserve University, USA.
Rammy’s passion is conceptual design and development of a methodology to devise solutions for mechanical, fluid, and tribology systems. With numerous patents and publications under his belt, he brings to table 35 years of experience in engineering and R&D. Before joining the Gevasol Group, Rammy served as Director of Engineering at EG&G Sealol (now Centurion-Eaton Aerospace) in Rhode Island, USA and founded Ettem Engineering, which is now a member of the Gevasol Group.
Rammy established and chaired the Advanced Projects Subcommittee (APS) of the Seal Technical Committee (STC) of the STLE. In this capacity, he pooled eleven industrial supporters for a research program selected by the APS. He serves as a reviewer for the STLE Transactions and the ASME Journal of Lubrication, as well as an examiner of M.Sc. and doctoral theses.
Among his projects are:
- Brush seals for gas turbines/jet engines
- Split seals for steam turbines
- Quiet hydro-dynamic bearings for underwater remote-controlled vehicles
- Quiet main shaft seals for nuclear submarines
- Main shaft seals for a variety of power turbines
- Drive units for heavy-duty chemical works machinery
- Aerodynamic/aerostatic bearings and computation analysis program “FluidGroove”
- Drive units for pharmaceutical applications
- Pitot-pump based circulation devices & computation analysis code
- Fluid Rotary Unions for radars and development of ERU’s (“slip rings”)
