Working in partnership with OEMs and design engineers of marine equipment to develop sealing products that can be used with confidence in all areas of maritime activity.
Since our Scottish engineer founder, Mr James Walker, introduced his innovative packing for high-efficiency steam engines to the shipping owners of the late 1800s, our products have increased beyond recognition in range and technical excellence to match the complex and demanding applications of today’s hardworking marine equipment and our close links with OEMs have seen James Walker innovations as an integral part of developments in propulsion, steering and stabilising systems.
Today, we manufacture and supply a highly diverse range of fluid sealing items and other specialised products for the world’s commercial and naval fleets, as well as for shipyards and original equipment manufacturers. Our solutions cover all major propulsion systems including:
Removable insulation covers enable access to exhaust systems quickly and easily, when required. The covers are designed to shield hot surfaces and reduce ambient temperatures in engine rooms and plant housings, providing improved safety and personal protection for crew. Additional benefits to crew and passengers from fitting insulation covers include the reduction / transmission of noise.
Improve performance, health and safety with tailored thermal wraps for exhausts, manifolds and turbochargers.
Specially formulated fluoroelastomer compatible with Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants in marine propulsion duties.
Radial lip seal joining method for on-site joining without the requirement for equipment strip-down.
