From pipeline flanges to screw joints – there is hardly a pipe connection that isn’t covered by a Victor Reinz gasket from Dana. The company says this holds true for the chemical technology and process industry as it does for private households. Dana will be presenting its wide range of gasket applications as the centerpiece of its appearance at the Achema 2018 in Frankfurt am Main from June 11 to 15.
“We want to show our visitors all the places where products from Dana ensure tight connections and safety,” said Volker Etzel, application engineer of the General Industrial Sales department, explaining the concept for the booth. “Many people are still surprised at all the different places where our gaskets turn up.”
Dana produces and supplies gasket solutions for all applications in the chemical industry – from raw material extraction to the various processing stages and all the way to the final product. Victor Reinz gaskets also are used in renewable energy generation as well as in the food industry, such as in chocolate production. For this reason, the Achema is one of the most important trade fairs for the gasket experts from Neu-Ulm. Customers from all over the world will be greeted at our booth by specialized area sales managers and application engineers, as well as by the friendly catering team.
“Our goal is to provide competent advice in an atmosphere where people can concentrate amidst the hustle and bustle of the fair. The quality of the advice we provide should match the quality of our products,” said Etzel. “Our customers should be able to feel at ease and experience our excellent service for themselves.”
Flat gaskets in pipeline flanges are subject to many different criteria – from the size of the flange to the roughness of the surface, the material and the number of screws all the way to operating conditions such as pressure and temperature. Dana says its newly created and thoroughly updated brochures Sealing Surface Pressures and Bolt Forces for CLASS and PN-Designated Welding Neck Flanges make it quick and easy to determine average surface pressures.
Victor Reinz gaskets from Dana also take care of plenty of chores in most private households – in gas meter gaskets and thermal solar modules, they ensure tight connections and provide comforting safety without anybody even noticing.
