Perlast stem seals double operational life in ball valve

Application

A leading Danish valve manufacturer supplying and servicing valves and instruments for control and measurement in industrial processes.

Problem

OEM experiencing problems with PTFE stem seals in a ball valve, moved to a Kalrez® perfluoroelastomer which became very brittle through heat ageing resulting in leakage, leading to high maintenance cycles and low life span for the valve and a loss of business/reputation for OEM.

Solution

PPE recommended the use of Perlast® G75B in various sized O-rings located around the ball valve stem, these were tested and approved by the OEM engineering team and end-user customer.

Result

PPE seals increased the operational life of the ball valve by 100% by reducing the maintenance/overhauls from 2 times a year to 1 a year.
