PPE seals expand ball valve offering for hot steam applications
Austrian ball valve manufacturer requiring high temperature sealing solution.
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).
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.
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.
