Product & Services

Fuel Handling and Prep

We are leading suppliers of fluid seals and related products for fuel handling and preparation systems for coal, oil and waste-fired plant.

Hydraulic compactors (waste-fired plant)

Hydraulic seals

  • For heavy duty use we recommend our Chevron®/Shallex® universal lip packings and our compact Solosele® G single-element seal, together with the Wyclip® scraper/wiper.
  • On double-acting pistons, our robust Solosele® S and Solosele® SW are widely used.
  • In addition we offer a full range of O-rings and back-up rings for a wide range of duties.

Gaskets & jointings

  • Our Metaflex® spiral wound and Metakamm® Kammprofile type gaskets are widely used for high-temperature, high-pressure applications.
  • Precision cut sheet gaskets in our Chieftain® carbon-fibre based universal jointing and Centurion® glass/aramid fibre based jointing fulfil most other requirements up to 450°C, together with our expanded graphite materials Supagraf® Tanged T10, reinforced with stainless steel and Supagraf® Plain which provide high levels of sealing integrity and joint stability over extended periods.

Valve stem packings

  • For control valves, we typically recommend low-friction preformed packing sets of Supagraf® Control.

Tension monitoring fasteners

  • Our RotaBolt® products are widely specified in the power sector where bolted joint safety, reliability, security and ease of maintenance are essential.

Conveyor systems (coal & waste-fired plant)

Gaskets & jointings

  • Our Metaflex® spiral wound and Metakamm® Kammprofile type gaskets are widely used for high-temperature, high-pressure applications.
  • Precision cut sheet gaskets in our Chieftain® carbon-fibre based universal jointing and Centurion® glass/aramid fibre based jointing fulfil most other requirements up to 450°C, together with our expanded graphite materials Supagraf® Tanged T10, reinforced with stainless steel and Supagraf® Plain which provide high levels of sealing integrity and joint stability over extended periods.

Polyurethane/rubber profiles

  • These are precision made by water-jet cutter for belt scrapers and side skirts.

Rotary/radial lip seals

  • Our family of Walkersele® radial lip seals is extensively used for protecting bearings on gearboxes and transmission systems in abrasive environments.

Machinery mounting pads

  • Tico® S resilient pads are suitable for mounting motors, gearboxes and transmission systems, as well as attenuating vibration and transmitted noise.
  • Tico® Hi-Duty pads absorb highly destructive shock loads, whereas Tico® LF pads will isolate disturbing low frequencies at the plant/structure interface.

Cooling water filter screens & gates (coal-fired plant)

Hydraulic seals

  • We supply a full family of products including Chevron®/Shallex®, Solosele®, support rings and scraper rings in a range of high performance materials, together with comprehensive range of O-rings and back-up rings.

Rod protector bellows

  • Our Comflex® protector bellows are custom-designed to protect hydraulic rods and rams operating in aggressive environments.

Gaskets & jointings

  • For pipework flanges we recommend precision cut sheet gaskets in Centurion® glass/aramid fibre based jointing and Sentinel® general purpose jointing, together with Supagraf® Tanged T10 reinforced graphite and a range of elastomeric jointing materials.

Valve stem packings

  • For control valves, we typically recommend low-friction preformed packing sets of Supagraf® Control.

Fuel storage & delivery (oil & coal-fired plant)

Gaskets & jointings

  • For pipeline flanges we recommend cut gaskets in Supagraf® Tanged T10, Nebar® cork-elastomers and a range of elastomeric jointing materials.
  • For pumps and valves, we recommend the same, plus Centurion® glass-aramid based jointing, plus Metaflex® spiral wound and Metakamm® Kammprofile-type gaskets.

Valve stem packings

  • We offer a full range of compression packings, including our Supagraf® Premier, Supagraf® Control and Supagraf® Moulded Rings, all of which provide high levels of VOC emission control with hydrocarbon fuels.

Pump packings

  • We offer a full range of suitable compression packings including product made totally from WL Gore & Associates’ GFO® yarn and  economical packing for fuels and oils. Mechanical and cartridge seals are also supplied.

Pulverised fuel mills (coal-fired plant)

Hydraulic seals

  • We supply a full family of hydraulic sealing products, support rings and scrapers for hydraulic cylinders.

Rod protector bellows

  • Our Comflex® protector bellows are custom-designed to protect hydraulic rods and rams operating in aggressive environments.

Expansion joints

  • We recommend our range of Comflex® expansion joints for mill ducting and PF and PFA pipework.

Gaskets & jointings

  • Cut gaskets in Centurion® and Supagraf® Tanged T10 are a popular choice for mill gearboxes and PF and PFA pipework flanges.

Rotary/radial lip seals

  • Our family of Walkersele® radial lip seals is extensively used for protecting bearings on gearboxes and transmission systems in abrasive environments.

Tension monitoring fasteners

  • Our RotaBolt® products are often specified as holding bolts where safety, reliability, security and ease of maintenance are essential.

Hoppers & chutes (coal & waste-fired plant)

Expansion joints

  • Our range of Comflex® expansion joints has products suitable for these highly abrasive environments.
