Industrial chemical processing typically includes multiple procedures involving chemical, physical, electrical, and/or mechanical steps to manufacture a final product. Transforming raw materials to a final product often includes one or more chemical reactions and other changes to chemical composition through processes such as mixing or separation.
To maximize revenue, a chemical processing operation must keep every step running smoothly. Streams of flowing or moving materials cannot be interrupted, and each system component must be durable and reliable enough to safely contain chemicals in storage systems and efficiently move them through the process.
O-rings, seals, gaskets, and hoses made from Viton™ fluoroelastomers exhibit superior performance characteristics, including:
Resistance to a wide range of chemicals
Ability to retain flexibility for a long time
Durability in high-temperature and high-pressure environments
