  • Patented penetration seal design
    (U.S. patent 7478839).
  • Unlimited axial movement.
  • Floating ring design permits lateral movement without introducing high stresses into the penetration pipe and boiler wall.
  • Insulated
  • Sealing efficiency is augmented, rather than reduced, by particulate build-up: maintenance between shutdowns is minimized.
  • Maintenance and seal replacements can be performed without cutting pipe or welding.
  • Robust design limits replacement parts to stainless steel wire mesh seals and insulation.
  • Improved boiler efficiency through reduced gas seepage.
  • Improved boiler efficiency through reduced heat loss.
  • Emissions reduction
  • Noise reduction
Diameter: 50 mm (2”) to 600 mm (24”)
