Val-Matic: VaultSafe Family of Products

Val Matic VaultSafeVal-Matic’s VaultSafe Family of Products are designed to protect potable water systems from contaminated flood waters, freezing temperatures and intentional harmful contamination. The VaultSafe Family consists of the FloodSafe Inflow Preventer, the FrostSafe air damper and the VentSafe vent pipe security cage. The FloodSafe prevents contaminated water from passing through it thus preventing it from entering the air valve outlet and compromising the potable water system with its dual chambers and float checks. The FrostSafe minimizes the thermal exchange of cold and warm air in and out of a vault to help prevent freezing with a bi-directional hingeless disc and wafer design. The VentSafe safe guards vent pipes against the hazards of nesting animals and intentional harmful activities because of its hemispherical screened security cage.

Garlock: ABRA-SHIELD Expansion Joint Liner Material

Garlock ABRA SHIELDGarlock has launched ABRA-SHIELD, a proprietary expansion joint liner material designed for abrasion resistance and sustainability in demanding high temperature operating conditions.

ABRA-SHIELD will be an option for use with a number of expansion joint products that Garlock offers – including styles 204, 206, 7250, 8400 and 9394. These uniquely constructed joints also provide high levels of protection from stress, misalignment, vibration, noise, shock and corrosion.

Media type and temperature play a significant role in the selection process of an expansion joint liner material. The specialty formulated hydrogenated nitrile butadiene rubber used in ABRA-SHIELD performs significantly better than common abrasion resistant solutions, with an operating temperature range up to 300°F.

In abrasion resistance testing – which provides data to compare materials and predict the lifetime of a material or coating – ABRA-SHIELD provided 50% higher abrasion resistance than standard EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber). ABRA-SHIELD will be the recommended solution in abrasive applications (such as slurry, ash and brine) with sustained or spiked temperatures between 180°F and 300°F. For temperatures outside of this range, other materials in Garlock's family of abrasion resistant expansion joints would be suggested.

ABRA-SHIELD is available as a liner material option on Garlock's expansion joint products, available immediately.
