Slade Fluid Sealing

We are quite proud of having been granted ABS Type approval for Slade 3300G, PyroTex Gasket material and PyroTex Joint Sealant.  Compare Slade to "the other guys", and see why we believe this is "Simply the Best" in Fluid Sealing. You may download a copy of the approval certificates or our MIL Specs by using the link(s) at the bottom of this page. You must have Acrobat® Reader® installed to view the files linked below.

Slade's diversity of use is quite extensive, and the core of our performance is our 3300 Series Packing Material, and our PyroTex Gasket Material, whether you choose our sheet material or our roll-fed "Gasket on a Spool". Scroll down for more info.

With Slade we offer:

No Flush Water Required on Pump Shafts at speeds in excess of 4000 fpm.
Seal Valves to 5,000 psi/345 bar - UNIQUE Lifetime Warranty
Temperatures of 1800 degrees F+ / 1000 degrees C+
Fire and Emission Safe - API and Emission Tested
Reduce Inventory by Using Same Material for Pumps and Valves

Pumps run virtually leak free, and without seal water (in all but the most abrasive conditions) with Slade Packing.  When used in valves, our packing is GUARANTEED for the life of the valve.  PERIOD.

Here are some of our Packing Material specifications:

3300-G is our all-purpose service packing for pumps with no flush required.
We excel in high pressure valves in chemicals, steam, hydrocarbons
Temp: Non-Oxidizers -400 degrees F (240 degrees C) to 5400 degrees F (3000 degrees C)
Steam: 1800 degrees F (1000 degrees C)
Valve Pressure: 5000 psi (350kg/cm2)
Pumps: No flush service to 4800 fpm (1400m/min)
PH range: 1 to 14

Slade PyroTex Gasket Sheet Info:

Gasketing problems (flex, thermal cycling, worn flanges) can become a thing of the past with Slade PyroTex material.

IT SURVIVES THE ELEMENTS!

High Temperature Performance
We treat Pyro-Tex with a proprietary anti-oxidant which rates it for higher temperatures than other graphite foil products, even in most oxidizing environments like furnace gas services. Pyro-Tex is commonly used at elevated temperatures over 1800 degrees F/1000 degrees C.

Harsh Chemicals Resistance
Pyro-Tex seals harsh chemicals such as solvents, liquid petroleum gases, hydrogen gas and virtually all volatile
organic compounds and chemicals at most common temperatures and concentrations.

  In the manufacture of this PATENTED PRODUCT, the strands are woven together to form a cloth which is then compressed to form a homogeneous gasket sheet. FLEXIBLE, RESILIENT AND STRONG.

The graphic at left shows our Woven Graphite Foil Cloth, prior to being compressed into an incredibly tough and flexible sheet.

Worn Equipment can be given NEW LIFE with SLADE.
Pyro-Tex puts poor equipment back in service by filling surface pits, scratches and surface erosion with nature's
greatest sealant, vermiculated graphite. Worn, oxidized, warped and misaligned flanges may be brought back into
compliance with Pyro-Tex gaskets.

Creep Relaxation NOT A PROBLEM with SLADE PYRO-TEX
Pyro-Tex is virtually free from creep relaxation because the high tensile Stainless Steel or Inconel (alloy 600) foil keeps it in place,
preventing drift. This produces better torque retention.

Annealed stainless steel foil is jacketed with graphite foil. The soft metallic foil strengthens the graphite foil used to weave the gasketing cloth.

EPA Standards
Pyro-Tex complies with EPA performance standards while offering long service life and low maintenance costs.

Made in the USA - Easy to Ship and Store
Pyro-Tex gasket sheets are packed in heavy duty cardboard tubes to eliminate shipping pallets. The tough
tubes make the sheet easy to store and handle.

Limits:

Temp: 1800 degrees F (1000 degrees C)

Pressure: 4,500 psi (310 bar) (2 to1 safety factor)

Sizes:

60" x 60" / 1.52m x 1.52m
60" x 120" / 1.52m x 3.05m
72" x 72" / 1.83m x 1.83m
80" x 80" / 2.03m x 2.03m
80" x 120" / 2.03" x 3.05m

Thickness:

"nominal 1/8" (0.10")/nominal 3.175mm (2.54mm)

LET OUR PYRO-TEX GASKET SHEET WORK FOR YOU!
Pyro-Tex gives you outstanding compressibility and recovery, eliminating problems common to rubber bound gasket sheets and especially graphite foil sheets that break easily.

NOW GET READY FOR ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE "GASKETS" YOU'LL FIND:

PYRO-TEX JOINT SEALANT (OUR GASKET ON A SPOOL) CAN MAKE CUSTOM GASKETS OBSOLETE. THIS MATERIAL WILL BECOME YOUR FIRST CHOICE FOR HEAT EXCHANGERS, OR ANY OTHER IN-PLACE GASKET FORMING APPLICATION:

The diagram below depicts just a few of the HUNDREDS of different heat exchanger configurations. Slade Pyro Tex eliminates the lead times and the cost of special ordering the gaskets for this equipment. Simply form the gasket IN PLACE and create a SEAMLESS, HIGH PERFORMANCE GASKET, EVEN ON DIFFERENT SIZED SECTION DIVIDERS!

DESIGNED TO REPLACE STANDARD DOUBLE JACKET, SPIRAL WOUND, GRAFONIC TYPE AND OTHER KINDS OF GASKETS, PYRO-TEX IS USED TO SEAL THE COVERS OF HEAT EXCHANGERS WHEN THEY BEGIN TO LEAK

PYROTEX HP MAY BE INSTALLED WITHOUT REMOVING THE HEAT EXCHANGER TUBING AS OPPOSED TO OTHER GASKETS

FABRICATED FOR ALL FLANGE RATINGS AND SIZES

IT WORKS ON FLAT FLANGES, TONGUE AND GROOVE FLANGES, MALE FEMALE FLANGES AND RAISED FLANGES. ALSO ON SMOOTH OR PHONOGRAPHIC SURFACES

THE PYROTEX HP STAINLESS FOIL REINFORCED GASKET IS USED FOR MAKING ENDLESS GASKETS IN SITU.

CAPABLE OF TEMPERATURES UP TO 1800ºF/1000ºC AND PRESSURES UP TO 4500 PSI /310 BAR.

CHEMICALLY INERT, ph 1-14; DESIGNED TO SEAL HYDROCARBONS, GASES AND GENERAL PRODUCTS

AS OPPOSED TO ALL OTHER GASKETS USED, PYROTEX HP IS CAPABLE OF SEALING SCRATCHES, PITS AND OTHER IMPERFECTIONS ON FLANGE FACES, WHILE USING LOW TORQUE VALUES. CAPABLE OF SEALING WARPED FLANGES AND REDUCES THE NEED TO REFACE WORN FLANGES

BECAUSE IT WILL NOT HARDEN, PYRO TEX HP MAINTAINS RESILIENCE IN SERVICE, ALLOWING IT TO EXCEL IN AREAS OF
SEVERE TEMPERATURE CYCLING.
