A petroleum hose is explicitly designed to move petroleum products. Some examples of this process might include crude oil and semi-processed petroleum products or liquid products of the petroleum refining process.

Petrochemicals

The petrochemical process is the term referring to the refining and processing of petroleum. There is a wide range of petrochemical materials, including asphalt and asphalt emulsions, maintenance oil, different types of solvents, and so forth.

What Does a Petroleum Hose Do?

Petroleum hoses are used in the refining and processing portions of petroleum, as well as several other functions, including:

- Hydraulic installations

- Vehicle fuel systems

- Technological processes in the industry

- Oils and fuels distribution

- Oils and fuels refueling

- Loading and unloading liquid petroleum products

UHMW, or ultra-high molecular weight, is a polyethylene product with exceptionally high impact and abrasion resistance qualities. UHMW has a series of applications because it is easy to both machine and fabricate.

At Allied Packing & Rubber, we are proud suppliers of UHMW sheets and bars.

What Is UHMW?

UHMW polyethylene is a material often used in a slide-type application or a self-lubricating bearing surface. It is known as a machinable solid wax that is the most wear-resistant of any unfilled material on the market today.

Because of its incredible resistance to common chemicals, UHMW is known to replace other materials such as nylons, acetals, and aluminum.

UHMW sheet is used to create slip surfaces, scrapers, and food processing fixtures that are FDA approved. Alternatively, a UHMW rod is used to make equipment elements such as washers, wheels, and pulleys.

UHMW Basics

Not only is UHMW highly resistant to wear, but it is also equally as resistant to abrasion. UHMW is excellent at promoting bulk material flow, including coal, soybeans, or sand because of these properties.

Additional benefits of UHMW include:
- Low cost

- High chemical resistance

- Low moisture absorption

- Superior wear resistance

- Low specific gravity

- Excellent machinability, rigidity, and strength

- FDA, USDA, and 3-A dairy compliant

 

UHMW is both ITAR and RoHS compliant.

UHMW Applications

There are a wide variety of applications for UHMW, including:
- Wear Plates
- Feeder lines
- Chute lining
- Hopper
- Scraper blades
- Guide rails
- Idler sprockets
- Star wheels
- Wear and slide machined parts
- Timing screws
- Food and Dairy packaging equipment

When you are trying to determine whether you should use a gasket or a seal for your project, you might confuse them as the same thing initially. Although they seemingly perform the same function, it is crucial to identify how they differ to determine your project’s right pick.

So, you might be wondering what is the difference between a gasket and a seal?

What Is a Gasket?

A gasket is used to seal a connection between two components, or flanges, with flat surfaces. You should use a gasket whenever a union or flange is required to prevent any leaking. Commonly, gaskets are used as a type of static seal.

What Materials Are Gaskets Made Of?

There are several different materials that gaskets can be manufactured from. The best gasket materials include special compressed non-asbestos sheets and graphite sheets. At Allied Packing & Rubber, Inc., we offer a wide variety of gaskets from various materials, including:

- Compressed non-asbestos sheets
- Cork nitrile composite sheets
- Garlock compressed non-asbestos sheets
- Graphite sheets
- Plastic and PTFE
- Vegetable fiber sheets

For a complete list of our gasket materials, visit us online today.

What Is a Seal?

A seal is used to seal a connection between engine parts, pumps, or shafts with rotating pieces. Usually, seals will be either molded or a machine product and are round. Because of the seals’ design, they must be appropriately installed. Otherwise, you will have leaks.

What Materials Are Seals Made Of?

Most seals are made up of an outer and inner ring. The outer ring is metal and sits over the inner ring, which is typically rubber. At Allied Packing & Rubber, Inc., we offer a wide variety of seals, including:

- O-rings
- Copper rings
- O-ring cord
- Mechanical seals
- Hydraulic seals
- Polypaks
- Vee rings
- “U” seals
- Quad rings
- Pneumatic “U” seals
- Leather cups
- Neo fab chevrons
- Oil seals
