Chip Manufacturer Benefits from Expertise for Large PFA Pipe Diameter Sealing Solution
August 23rd, 2018
In the process of working with Saint-Gobain, one of the world’s largest chip manufacturers reported an issue with its large diameter HP PFA pipe installation for its bulk chemical delivery system and hook up (1 ½” or 2” pipe).
As a first step, the manufacturer successfully transitioned from its existing flange system to Saint-Gobain’s No O-ring union system (Furon® SSUM) which provided them with increased cleanliness (no gasket materials) and purity/safety (no metal tie rods that have a tendency to be chemically attacked).
As the customer became more confident with the design and skill set of Saint-Gobain’s engineering team, they shared additional concerns with their installation. Faced with loosening connections, which are often found on large diameter installations due to high vibrations generated by the system, they needed a solution for the sealing interface to improve safety.
