Lubricantion Audits

Lube audits help increase productivity and reduce energy consumption. PHOTO:THINKSTOCK Lubrication systems in any manufacturing or processing plant must deliver the right amount of cool and clean oil or grease at the right time to lube points. The benefits are improved utilization and effectiveness, increased reliability and, most important, lower maintenance costs. But achieving lubrication’s…

Seals and O-Rings

Seals and O-rings are designed to protect pumps, but when they fail they can have a devastating effect on machinery. Almost 70% of rotating equipment breakdowns are due to improper, badly installed or otherwise failing sealing devices. To address this issue, Patrick Rhodes, applications engineer at Klozure of Garlock Sealing Technologies in Palmyra, NY, presented…

Most commonly available in either red or white but can be made in black if required. Our range includes British Standard…

Air Mizer

Product handling applications like mixers, blenders, agitators and rotary feed valves often suffer from product leakage and contamination due to ineffective sealing. Product loss occurs in these applications when the powder, liquid or bulk solid product migrates down the shaft, through the sealing device and into the atmosphere. Product contamination occurs when outside particulates enter…

PTFE O Rings

PTFE O Rings PTFE O Rings have a working temperature range -200 to +300 degrees C. PTFE is the most chemically inert of all the O ring materials, it is resistant to most chemicals, acids, oils and steam. It is very tough and abrasion resistant however it is not easily compressible and will not seal…

Viton O Rings

O Ring

O Ring seals are unlike many other materials that design engineers confront. Metal or plastic parts, for example, are probably failing if visibly distorted. But an O-ring must be deformed to function properly. In fact, an O-ring that is not compressed in its application is the wrong O-ring. The following list provides some “rules of…

Grease Nipples

Grease Fittings/Nipples

Grease Fittings/Nipples Since the 1920’s, the ever-growing use of sealed bearings throughout manufacturing industries has made the use of grease fittings less common. Sealed bearings are lubricated for life at the factory, and are sealed in such a way that the lubricant is not lost or dirtied. However, grease fittings are far from obsolete, and…

Inflatable Seal

Inflatable Seal What is an Inflatable Seal? An inflatable seal is a fabric-reinforced elastomeric tube custom molded in a concave, convoluted or flat configuration. It is designed to round out with the introduction of an inflation medium to form a tight barrier between a mounting and striking surface. How Does an Inflatable Seal Work? Upon…
