Static applications

Advanced yarn technology to match application demands.

The sealing of tank lids, furnace doors and crucible lids may appear to be a less demanding application due to the lack of component movement, but these static duties bring their own challenges. To meet demands such as the extreme temperatures of lid sealing on aluminium smelting crucibles or chemical resistance for sealing tank lids on hazardous substance shipping tanks, James Walker offers the latest yarn technology to meet both application demands and user safety.

Using a variety of core and braided materials plus different manufacturing techniques, products are developed to suit specific application demands, whether that is an economic single-use tank lid seal or a longer-term option for effective sealing of furnace doors. In many cases James Walker has developed and offers a range of options for individual applications, enabling the end user to choose the performance/cost combination best suited to their requirements.
