Perhaps no other production environment is more challenging than the Chemical Processing Industry. Especially when other factors such as temperature, wear, and dimensional stability have to be factored into the material selection process. At E. Jordan Brookes, we offer a wide array of materials that can satisfy many applications in these harsh environments.
|PTFE seals can easily deform or change shape after machining and installation.|
|Valve seats and seals machined from modified PTFE can maintain the required dimensions and provide the sealing performance needed in challenging services like steam and hot air.|
|Modified PTFE dimensional stability is significantly better than that of virgin or low-tech filled PTFE's. It also offers excellent chemical resistance and non-permeability to hot air and steam.|
Fluorosint 207 is recommended for this application.
- Better dimensional stability over PTFE
- Performs in challenging environments like steam and hot air, non permeability
- Similar CLTE of aluminum which can help eliminate fit and clearance problems
|Metallic seals don?t provide the performance that designers need, while low-tech plastic materials can?t withstand the loads that continue to increase.
|New generation materials based on PEEK and PPS are able to survive in chemical and steam service while providing the mechanical strength that newer designs need.
|Strength, chemical resistance and dimensional stability all are critical in sealing applications. Quadrant has several modified grades of PEEK and PPS materials that can be matched to you sealing application.
Ketron 1000 PEEK is recommended for this application.
