Kaydon Gas Control Systems

Seal gas control systems are essential to the success of any gas seal installation.  They provide gas filtration, gas pressure and flow control, and measurement of flows and pressures. The addition of a Kaydon Ring & Seal Gas Control System to your gas seal installation will ensure that the gas going to your seals meets or exceeds the requirements of your seals, and will provide you with tools necessary to monitor seal health and performance over time.

Each Kaydon control system is designed specifically for the application and budget. A system concept is developed with consideration for safety, piping and electrical regulations, and reliability requirements that will suit the particular needs of the application as well as the proper function of the seals. Concepts are transferred to P&ID drawings, general arrangement models, and electrical schematics that can be used to support final construction and site installation.

Upon assembly, each system is subjected to pneumatic testing of all gas lines and continuity testing of all instruments and transmitter signals to assure proper operation. The final product is delivered ready to install.
