PTFE Products

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) also known as Teflon® is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. Invented by DuPont, PTFE can be modified and shaped for use as a gasketing material with strong chemical resistance properties.     Advantages of using PTFE include: Not affected to most chemicals. Can be used at temperatures up to 500°F (260°C). The lowest coefficient of friction […]

Avoiding Leaks in Multiple Effect Evaporators and Stream Systems

Used frequently in the pulp & paper industry, multiple effect evaporators boil water through a sequence of vessels held at increasingly lower pressures. However, the evaporators dome lids are prone to leaking if the gaskets used are unreliable or a poor fit for the application. The Solution: Durlon® 9000 series welded gaskets Seal & Design offers […]
