Inflatable seals for pulp and paper industry

Inflatable seals in the pulp and paper industry solve a number of unique problems.

Inflatable seals for pulp and paper industry

Inflatable seals in the pulp and paper industry solve a number of unique problems. For one, paper manufacturing equipment is usually quite large. Trying to control tolerances between mating pieces of equipment or to account for the thermal expansion/contraction of metal can be nearly impossible when trying to use a traditional seal like an o-ring.

Use of an inflatable seal in these instances would be able to take up these variations.

Also, clamping large rolls of paper or pushing long doctor blades can be handled more easily with a product that can account for tolerance variations more easily than more traditional methods.

Keeping up with COVID-19

This rapidly evolving corona-virus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses. While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal. Governmental orders in the fight against the spread of the corona-virus (COVID-19) lead to the partial or complete closing of several production lines or designation of lines for the production of crucial parts for essential industries like food and pharma. As a direct result confirmed or usual lead times may not be met. In the current situation the delay cannot be determined. With the closing of factories in certain areas we need to make some changes to standard terms. To can keep operational and safeguard our financial position we must change certain terms. These will be announced and confirmed upon receipt of orders. Apologies for the inconvenience. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others!!
