To achieve big improvements in the performance of your industrial valves, you need to consider every little design detail. Right down to the seal.
That’s why we’ve produced this short video. It offers some pointers on choosing seals for isolation, butterfly, ball, gate, and other valve types. It also addresses some common causes of seal failure, and recommends ways to avoid them. Other topics include:
- What properties to look for in a sealing material
- How adjustments to seal geometry can help balance sealing effectiveness and protection against extrusion
- How energizers and locking rings prevent failure in thermal cycling conditions
We’ve covered a lot in just over 2 minutes, but there’s so much more. If you’d like to learn how a custom-engineered seal can elevate your new or current valve design, call or email us today. We’ll help you find the extra valve performance and reliability you’re looking for.
