‘Replace a seal, save a $1m project’ - .PDF file.

There are times when a bad seal can bring an entire project to a halt, as additives and PVC stabiliser supplier Amfine Chemical Corp discovered when it was ramping up a line to produce a nucleating agent that also serves as a clarifying agent for semicrystalline polymers. An EP seal from Meco was mounted on the drive end of the dryer, which the company hoped would enable the dryer to pull a vacuum deeper than 50 Torr. In fact, it is able to consistently approach zero Torr with the new seal. Dryer cycle times have become predictable and consistent achievement of deep vacuum has resulted in more consistent product quality and high profitability for Amfine.
