Leakage control of the moving O-ring seal
Further information please refer to the datasheet in PDF format.
For maxiumum product safety LAUFER free flow shutter valves are available with a leakage monitoring System of the only dynamic O-ring. This specific design identifies possibile wearing defects of the seal and prevents any contamination from the outside Environment.
The special designed leakage chamber can act as a steam barrier or offer monitoring via means of a level conductor control (dilution of glycerine).
The pivoting axle is supported with a ball-bearing shaft for increased stability and less required operating torque compared with the standard shutter valve.
