EGC: Certified Low Emissions Valve Technology for LDAR Programs

EGC’s Thermafoil 2236–CLE (Certified Low Emission) is a high-temperature, high-density, die-molded valve stem packing that is ideal for refining, petrochemical and chemical plants. EGC’s Low-E solution is based on our partnering agreement with Teadit and use of their fugitive emissions test approved Style 2236 braided product.

Thermafoil 2236-CLE is self-lubricating, non-hardening and dimensionally stable while, at the same time, is resistant to gasses, fluids, heat, pressure and most chemicals. Its high-temperature flexible graphite and Inconel filament jacket afford mechanical stability while advanced construction provides leakage control and high integrity VOC and VHAP emissions containment.

It is the only API 622 approved packing that doesn’t degrade above 500oF and has been proven to pass fugitive emissions testing at 850oF. Thermafoil 2236-CLE has been approved to meet API 622, ISO 15848 (for both control and on/off valves), TA-LUFT and Chevron Texaco fugitive emissions packing test standards, as well as ANSI/API607 fire test safety standard.



A.W. Chesterton: 1724 Low E Sealing System

Achieving Low E Fugitive Emissions Compliance in Chemical Industry Valve Stem Sealing

AW Chesterton 5300ValveCutaway White PackingA.W. Chesterton Company announces the availability of their 1724 Low E Sealing System to satisfy both block and control valve stem sealing requirements to meet the latest U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) consent decrees for “Low E” valve packings. This now makes available a PTFE valve stem packing for the hydrocarbon and chemical industries that complies with the tightest leakage standard set by the US EPA.

With most manufacturers’ focus on graphitic packings to meet the fugitive emissions limitations of the refining industry, in most chemical plants these graphitic packings are not capable of providing the chemical resistance needed for many valve sealing applications.
