Avoiding Leaks in Multiple Effect Evaporators and Stream Systems

Used frequently in the pulp & paper industry, multiple effect evaporators boil water through a sequence of vessels held at increasingly lower pressures. However, the evaporators dome lids are prone to leaking if the gaskets used are unreliable or a poor fit for the application.

The Solution: Durlon® 9000 series welded gaskets

Seal & Design offers high-quality welded gasket solutions for a variety of chemical applications including:
durlon-blueDurlon® 9000/9000N

Tested and approved for extreme temperatures, caustics, and liquid and gaseous dry-chlorine service, this PTFE model is widely used in the pulp and paper industry.

 

 

Durlon® 9200W

durlon-whiteA blend of Barium Sulfate and PTFE makes this model resistant to the aggressive chemicals such as caustics,hydrogen peroxide, sodium hypochlorite, nitric acid, liquors, and digesters used in pulp and paper processes.

Spiral Wound Gaskets in the Power Generation Industry

PowerGen
In today’s changing landscape, there are more options than ever in the power generation industry; from natural gas, fossil fuels, coal, and nuclear to renewable methods such as hydroelectric, wind, solar, and biomass.

To withstand the extreme temperatures and conditions of these applications, manufacturers depend on durable gaskets and sealing solutions.

The gaskets used throughout these plants must be able to handle a range of operating conditions and pressures in order to evenly distribute power across long distances.

Reliable gasket solutions allow companies to easily meet the needs of the communities they serve while staying ahead of the curve in power generation trends.

Spiralwound Gaskets: High-Performance Technology

seals-metallicSeal & Design’s Spiral Wound Gaskets (SWG) are manufactured according to ASME B16.20 standards with quality assurance to comply with API specifications Q1 and ISO 9001:2008.

These gaskets are crafted with a combination of various smart materials: a preformed metal strip alternates with a more compressible, soft filler material, allowing for a highly responsive and extremely tight seal.

New Product Offering – HeatSORB

HeatSorb1HeatSORB proprietary phase change material addresses thermal management issues by capturing heat – allowing a device to remain cooler by delaying temperature ramps.

HeatSORB material increases thermal efficiency and goes above and beyond traditional heat spreaders such as copper, graphite sheets, or heat pipes. HeatSORB material provides benefit to any application in which high heat of fusion and long-term, reliable thermal management are concerns – especially when real estate is limited.

Seal & Design is a Rogers Preferred converter, contact us to learn more about HeatSORB and it’s applications.

 

New DOSS O-Ring Inspection Machine

Seal & Design’s new O-Ring vision inspection machine is state of the art!  It’s fully equipped with low energy consumption illumination powered by LED stroboscopic technology, two high definition cameras, plus a 360° camera that inspects the entire periphery of the part and a laser to check part thickness or flatness.

 

The O-Ring vision inspection machine is capable of inspecting parts up to 60mm diameter with a maximum height of 15mm and can obtain inspection speeds up to 10pcs/sec.  This inspection system uses 33% less power and has the potential to increase our run efficiencies by 25%.
