Saint-Gobain Seals: New Product Handbooks

Saint-Gobain Seals releases two new product handbooks: OmniSeal® spring-energized seals (US or EU) and Meldin® HT thermoplastic materials, which have been formatted and designed for engineering, procurement, sales and management to easily identify sealing and polymer solutions in one document. The product handbooks have been redesigned to enhance user interface.

Saint-Gobain Seals’ comprehensive OmniSeal® product handbook was first given out to attendees at Valve World 2014 in Düsseldorf, Germany, where their new, single-stem sealing solution reducing fugitive emissions was officially launched for the oil & gas market. The Meldin® HT product handbook was given out at CTI Symposium in Berlin, Germany, where Saint-Gobain Performance L+S GmbH exhibited their automotive solutions (seal rings, thrust washers and bearings) for transmissions. The release of the Meldin® HT product handbook was timely as L+S’ injection molded products were formally integrated into the new Meldin® 4000 series and included in the handbook.

DeZURIK/APCO/Hilton: APCO ASU Combination Air Valve

DeZURIK APCO ASU Combination Air ValveDeZURIK/APCO/Hilton introduces the APCO ASU Combination Air Valve. This single body combination valve features a patented air release and air/vacuum mechanism that is specifically designed to deal with media containing grit, solids and grease.

The unique design provides varied and predictable air flow over a wide range of air release conditions. A large diameter Air/Vacuum Disc provides high volume air flow for rapid venting during pipeline filling and allows high volumes of air to enter the pipeline during draining. During normal pipeline flow conditions, the dual-range air release design prevents air build up and resultant flow restrictions under changing conditions and through the full flow range.

A.W. Chesterton: Polymer Labyrinth Seal

Chesteron Polymer Labyrinth SealThe Polymer Labyrinth Seal from the A.W. Chester Company is designed to provide improved sealing performance in splash applications for bearing and gearbox protection. This high performance non-contact design eliminates fretting caused by conventional lip seals and helps to reduce maintenance costs associated with premature bearing and gearbox failures.

The unitized, non-contacting 3-piece labyrinth design includes a rotor, a stator and a built-in valve with no wearing parts. While in operation lubricant is contained within the labyrinth and flows back into the bearing housing while outside contaminants are excluded, by centrifugal force and gravity, and redirected through a relief port back to atmosphere.

Spirax Sarco: STAPS Wireless Steam Trap Monitor

spirax steam trap monitorSpirax Sarco is pleased to announce the release of their new wireless steam trap monitoring system – STAPS Wireless, designed to deliver accurate wireless monitoring and reporting of steam trap performance around the plant.

It is important for steam users to keep track of the performance of steam traps because leaking or blocked traps waste energy and water, where as a healthy steam trap population allows condensate to be removed from the steam system effectively which means it can be re-used. This helps contribute to reduced fuel costs, energy saving and reduced water charges.
