THE HALO SEAL SYSTEM

Diagram of The Halo Seal

The Halo Seal is a revolutionary, patented sealing product which delivers low emission technology and high integrity at a cost normally associated with less effective sealing systems.

The HaloSeal is an improved design of Metallic Gasket, based on a German (‘Kammprofile’) design for solid serrated-core gaskets.  This design is rated as one of the best performing sealing technologies, due to the extremely tight and stable joint seal that it offers, and is used extensively in Oil Refineries and Petrochemical Plants for applications subject to thermal cycling, pressure variations, flange rotation, stress relaxation and creep.

The HaloSeal has been specifically created to address the issue of fugitive emissions in High-Integrity and Business-Critical applications, with the product suite providing a revolutionary approach to streamlining gasket applications by utilizing a unique two-part sealing system, in an extremely cost-effective manner. The HaloSeal design comprises a unique ‘interchangeable’ Sealing Element paired with a ‘split’ Guide- Ring within a patented two-part design.  Due to this intelligent and flexible design, the Capital cost (in comparison to other currently available metallic gaskets) is vastly reduced by the utilizing less material.  Maintenance costs are also reduced due to the HaloSeal’s ability to be reconditioned in-situ.

The Halo Seal comprises a sealing element based on Kammprofile technology and a unique, reusable outer ring. This revolutionary feature allows the sealing element to be easily removed and replaced – reducing the life cycle cost considerably and eliminating the dramatic price differential between a Kammprofile and a spiral wound seal.

The product is designed to accept a common sealing element for each pipe size, regardless of pressure class or international flange standard, reducing inventory and minimising the risk of installing the wrong gasket.

The Halo Seal sealing element is common across all pressure classes and flange standards, reducing inventory and minimising the risk of incorrect gasket installation.

HOW IT WORKS

Removal of Halo Seal

Removal

The Halo Seal’s revolutionary design facilitates the easy removal of the sealing element from the outer ring. Pressure applied to the seal releases it from the outer ring and separates the two components.

Replacement

The release of the sealing element can be conducted at the flange, or the gasket can be taken to the stores were the element can be removed and replaced. The locating tab allows the guide ring to be left on the flange after disassembly; a new sealing element can then be attached and the gasket reinstalled.

Refitting of Halo Seal

Refitting

A new sealing element clips easily back into the guide ring (if correctly fitted the seal will spin). Because the sealing element is common across all pressure classes and international flange standards, inventory is reduced and the risk of incorrect gasket installation greatly minimised.

The revolutionary FRS incorporates additionally a specially constructed insert that is designed to minimise and manage corrosion in new and existing flanged joints.

The Halo Seal comprises a Sealing Element based on Kammprofile technology and a unique, reusable outer ring. This combination provides a more comprehensive and significantly lower cost option than any other currently available Industry alternatives. The product combination is designed to be a common solution for every pipe size, regardless of pressure class or international flange standard, thus reducing inventory and minimising the risk of installing the wrong gasket. Uncontrolled corrosion can cause immense damage to unprotected flange joints and faces; causing premature failure or high levels of fugitive emissions, resulting in a large amount of unwanted cost due to downtime and equipment repair.

The HALO FRS is a patented Corrosion Control & Flange Maintenance System that offers Industry a solution against corrosion. The patented HALO FRS has been designed to virtually eliminate the risk of corrosion in new flange faces and to prevent further damage in corrosion affected flange faces.

The new HALO FRS Insert allows the End-user to adapt his standard HALO Seal into an engineered solution for the control and management of corrosion in the Oil & Gas, Mining, Desalination, Chemical and Process Industries.

The patented HALO FRS has been designed to virtually eliminate the risk of corrosion in new flange faces and to prevent further damage in corrosion affected flange faces.
