Literature Update 2/14
OHI releases it's valve design guide. Comprehensive polymer guide which discusses polymer materials and products for valve seats, bearings, seals, and stem packing used in severe service applications.
LNG - Cryoseal
The harsh environments of LNG and Cryogenic applications are no match for Odin Heavy Industries’ Cryoseal.  Partnering OHI's proprietary  polymer material Cryonel with engineered sealing technology creates a robust seal capable of withstanding temperatures as low as -320°F (-196°C).  This technology is applied to OHI’s new line of solutions for stem seals, body seals, and valve seats.
New Product - 600°F Seal Material
OHI launches a new material capable of reaching 600°F. This material has properties similar to PTFE and is an excellent candidate for high pressure and temperature sealing applications.
