Conval: Lower-Pressure Clampseal Nuclear Bellows Seal Valves

Conval LP Bellows Seal ValveConval is now offering lower-pressure Clampseal N- and NPT-stamp bellows seal valves for demanding toxic, corrosive, caustic applications and regulations of severe service process control where leakage to the environment is not an option.

The new Clampseal bellows seal valves feature low weight and seismic profile; leak-proof integrity; in-line servicing; high cycle bellows; high flow capacity; and no fugitive emissions. The valves are available in ½” through 4” sizes, for ASME Class 150-900 pressure classes, with socket weld, butt weld, flange and threaded end connections.  

Garlock: GYLON EPIX Gaskets

Garlock GYLON EPIXGarlock has launched the GYLON EPIX™, a patented next generation in PTFE gasketing featuring a hexagonal surface profile with superior compressibility and sealing for use in chemical processing environments.

GYLON EPIX™ will be available in one universal thickness of 3/32" (2.4mm) that combines the sealing and blowout resistance of a 1/16" (1.6mm) gasket with the compressibility and conformability of a 1/8" (3.2mm) gasket. It will be available in the same three materials as traditional GYLON® products; fawn (silica filled PTFE), off-white (barium sulfate filled PTFE) and blue (aluminosilicate microsphere filled PTFE).

In metallic flanges, GYLON EPIX™ performs as well or better than existing 1/16" or 1/8" GYLON® gaskets, allowing end-users and distributors to consolidate inventory, lower the risk of using incorrect gasket thicknesses, and reduce stocking costs.

Chesterton: Kaplan Runner Blade Trunnion Split Seal

Chesterton Kaplan Runner Blade Trunnion Split SealA.W. Chesterton has released its new Kaplan Runner Blade Trunnion Split Seal for heavy duty rotary and oscillating applications. Proven in applications around the world, this split seal design greatly enhances reliability by keeping water and contaminants out of the hub and keeping lubricants in to avoid environmental contamination.

Chesterton’s Kaplan Runner Blade Trunnion Split Seal has a pin and lock design that keeps the turbine motion from pulling the split seal apart and also uses load pressure to join cut ends. Unlike standard stack sets, these seals are designed with a positive, flared lip design which enables them to automatically adjust and compensate for radial cross sectional variances. This feature helps resist blade droop which so often causes reliability issues.
