Acid Piping Technology, the worldwide supplier of MONDI™ pipe and fittings, recently tested the ability of Flange Pelseal® to seal gaps in MONDI™ flanges created by impact damage or corrosion. Gaps that could not be sealed by conventional gaskets alone.
Both tests yielded impressive results.
The first test examined the application of Flange Pelseal® in a typical impact damage scenario. The image gallery to the left shows the test damage, preparation, and application of the product to solve this common problem.Learn More
The second test examined the application of Flange Pelseal® in a typical erosion and/or corrosion situation. The image gallery to the right shows the test damage, preparation, and application of the product to fill the eroded area and prevent leaks.Learn More
Pelseal® Technologies, LLC manufactures the world's broadest line of high performance liquid fluoroelastomer coatings, adhesives, sealants and caulks, many of which are formulated from Viton™, a fluorine-containing synthetic rubber.
These state-of-the-art products exhibit extraordinary performance characteristics in harsh environments, are able to withstand temperature extremes of -40 to +400 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to +205 degrees Celsius) and resists attack from hundreds of corrosive chemicals and liquids.
Because of these unique properties, Pelseal's fluoroelastomer products have been employed in numerous industrial applications where the challenge of severe service conditions exists.
