PPE seals expand ball valve offering for hot steam applications

Application

Austrian ball valve manufacturer requiring high temperature sealing solution.

Problem

Valve OEM missing out on new business opportunities driven by a trend towards higher temperature requirements, incumbent seal material Fluoraz® 797 offered capability up to 230°C (446°F).

Solution

PPE offered FEPM material Aflas® A75H with higher thermal capabilities, making it suitable for hot water/steam environments with permanent capability up to 250°C (482°F) and 290°C (554°F) for short periods.

Outcome

The OEM is able to offer valves capable of operating in more demanding applications such as hot water/steam whilst reducing the variety of stock holding and increasing profitability.
