FEBRUARY 17, 2016 — Roxtec International AB, Karlskrona, Sweden, has launched Roxtec SPM seal — a light-weight, non-weld seal that can be used with any kind of metal pipe onboard marine or offshore structures to ensure protection against fire, gas and water.
“Our new seal makes it easy to ensure safety and operational reliability without any downtime or cost associated with welding,” says Roger Johansson, Executive Vice President Business Area Marine & Offshore.
The Roxtec SPM seal is certified for A-class fire rated divisions, to 1 bar water pressure and to 0.67 bar gas pressure.
The Roxtec SPM seal is made of highly elastic EPDM rubber and fittings of acid-proof stainless steel. It is quick and easy to install from only one side of steel decks or bulkheads. The indicators that show when full compression is achieved are just one example of its safe and user-friendly design.
The Roxtec SPM seal uses patented technology to maintain a tight seal round the metal pipe and to seal inside uneven or irregular openings.
It is available in 16 sizes, each of them offering an inward tolerance of 4 mm round the metal pipe as well as an outward tolerance towards the inside of the opening.
