Safer sealing solutions for the Agrichemical industry.
Agrochemical production delivers a host of challenging environments. Aggressive chemicals, such as ammonia and nitric acid, must be contained. Temperatures can exceed 1000oC/1832°F, creating a highly oxidized environment, while pressures can rise to 2900psi/200 bar. Thermal cycling, experienced during routine maintenance, further increases demand on equipment.
For such a challenging application, one small component can make the biggest difference. Selecting the right gasket material can minimize downtime, maintain safety and maximize the efficiency of plant operations. Flexitallic has developed a wide portfolio of gasket products specifically for the complex environment present in ammonia/nitric acid production. Core to the range are two products; Thermiculite® and ChangeTM.
