Piping Technology & Products, Inc. cut and bonded a PTFE, 25% glass filled, ring (see fig.1) to a polyslinger which will be utilized at a Chemical plant in Texas.
The polyslinger was a total weight of 33 lbs and its lip measured at 26″ O.D. The PT&P worker cut the PTFE, 25% glass filled, at 24″ I.D. with a thickness of 3/32″ and then bonded it to the lip of the polyslinger with an epoxy resin adhesive. PTFE, 25% glass filled, is used as padding, intended for reducing metal-to-metal friction.
