Application: GSS-Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)
Customer Location: Pump Manufacturer, North West France
Application Date: 2004
Belzona® 2131 (D&A Fluid Elastomer)
Problem: The valves required a small, custom seal to prevent water re-entering the pump. These seals were not available to purchase due to the design.
- Valves awaiting gasket
- Small Valve having Belzona® 2131 applied
- Large valve having Belzona® 2131 applied
Non-return flap valves for water pumps.
The application was carried out using a modified version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-1. Extreme care was taken during this complicated application, as the photos illustrate.
The performance of the gaskets is such that this has become standard in the production with this client. There has been no alternative to the customer at the time, and over 50 have been produced to date.
