  • Eliminate steam leaks and the safety hazards associated with high temperatures and toxic gases
  • Reduce condenser capacity and space requirements in new steam turbines
  • Require less axial space than labyrinths
  • Easily installed and field serviceable in a variety of sealing environments
  • Allow a “wear-in” to minimal clearance through flexible sealing mechanism
  • Standard components for cost-effectiveness and timely shipment
