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