Designed for the steel, oil, gas, chemical, pharmaceutical, and food industries, downtime kept to a minimum due to the quick maintenance nature of this pipe flange seal.
The ease of maintenance feature involves the ability to remove the seal, which is supported within a special retaining element, and replace it without fully disconnecting or moving the mating flange or runs of pipework as is typically the case with the standard DIN and CETOP flanges found in heavy pipework systems.
There are no comparable products at the high flow end of the market. The flange design has considerable commercial potential in areas where the cost of downtime is very high, such as in offshore industry.
The flange can be supplied in any steels to suit the environment including 080M15 (standard), stainless or exotic alloys.
