Shand & Jurs offers a uniquely designed seal, named Expanda-Seal™, which uses tank pressure to inflate the gasket. This design actually uses the internal vessel pressure to create a tighter seal the closer the pressure gets to the set point. Whatever your industry, this high-performance sealing technology is an ideal fit for refineries, tank farms, terminals, sewage treatment plants, landfills, agricultural, or even the food and beverage industry.
This innovative design actually uses the internal vessel pressure to create a tighter seal the closer the pressure gets to the set point. Expanda-Seal™ ensures less than 0.5 SCFH air at 95% of the set point; the end result is a nearly bubble-tight seal.
