Garlock Lithium Brine Evaporation Sealing

Lithium Brine Evaporation

Avoid premature failure even under abrasive conditions. Unlike rubber gaskets, Garlock’s MULTI-SWELL® Style 3760 has a unique formulation of synthetic fibers and proprietary fillers, ensuring a long-term tight seal. Twice as compressible as standard fiber gaskets, MULTI-SWELL® streamlines installation by offering forgiveness in irregular flange conditions. For extremely abrasive applications, consider upgrading to GYLON® 3545 Microcellular.

Lithium Battery Manufacturing

Lithium Battery Manufacturing

Challenges presented by shaft misalignment in rotating equipment and high temperatures are no match for Garlock’s bearing protection technology. We offer oil seals that overcome misalignment for a long service-life, even under the high-temperature conditions faced by lithium-ion battery manufacturers.

Reducing failures and increasing uptime is crucial, whether in cathode slurry processing, utility support, or process piping. Piping system vibrations can lead to early failures and downtime in lithium-ion battery production. Garlock’s P2000 Expansion Joints isolate equipment from these forces, ensuring longevity.
