Industries & Applications
Water and Waste
We have full ranges of fluid sealing products that are well proven for long life with low maintenance in the water and waste sectors. In addition, our plant maintenance and refurbishment services are highly appreciated by utility companies.
A number of our sealing products are WRAS-approved for potable water applications. Some of these significantly reduce water companies' stockholding requirements, as they also have the abrasion and chemical resistance needed for wastewater processing and river intake duties.
The following is a selection of our relevant products and services...
- Compression Packings
- Flange Gaskets and Sheet Jointings
- Pump and Valve Maintenance
- Hydraulic Sealing Products
- Bolting Technology
Containing over 30 products, this range includes certified fugitive emission control packings, as well as grades for general use and specific applications on valves, rotary and reciprocating pumps, shaft sealing on rotary equipment and for static sealing duties such as furnace doors. Our Lionpak range complements the original James Walker range to meet more specifically the technical and commercial expectations in different industrial and geographical markets.
WRAS-approved gland packings for potable water duties include Duramid®, Fluograf®, and Hornet. All these provide long-term sealing with highly abrasive slurries and chemicals used in treatment processes.
This makes them suitable for pumps and valves in virtually all water and sewage applications, enabling operators to reduce their stockholding levels.
Materials for potable water duties include our non-asbestos Sentinel® and Inca jointings.
They can be supplied in sheet form for on-site economy or as precision cut gaskets to any shape, size and quantity.
The repair and refurbishment of valves, pumps and hydraulic systems is a key service we provide to the water and waste sector. Skilled craftsmen at our dedicated workshops use the best equipment, materials and components for repair and refurbishment projects, and all plant items are tested and certified before re-installation. Our on-site staff are fully experienced and hold safety passports.
Our family of hydraulic sealing products covers virtually every hydraulic application. Ranges of rod/gland seals, piston seals, wipers and bearing strips suit the most accurate instruments and control actuators up the heaviest jacks and cylinders. All the products are designed and proven to give optimum equipment performance with long trouble-free operating life.
RotaBolt® load indicating fasteners provides accuracy to ±5%. These converted bolts and studs are custom-manufactured for important applications where the failure of a bolted joint would have serious health and safety, environmental or financial consequences. They are extensively used on pipeline and pressure vessel flanges, mechanical plant and structures.
