Fittings and Seals to Suit

Finding Fittings online is worry-free with Stainless Steel Things – because Koss Industrial, Inc. is an Authorized Distributor for Alfa Laval products. When finding your fittings, remember to consider which seal material will best suit the intended application.

“… Alfa Laval is able to offer various options in addition to its standard seal, including: • NBR, Nitrile Rubber   • FPM, Fluorine Rubber   • EPDM, Ethylene Propylene   • Nitrile (Buna-N)   • White Nitrile (White Buna-N)   • Viton ®   • PTFE   • Silicone (Q) …”

The benefit of purchasing by “Box of 10” is the savings! You could be saving 30-40% per fitting (depending on the fitting) by purchasing 1 box of 10 fittings.

CNC Lathe

A CNC lathe – Computer Numerical Controlled lathe – is designed to use a modern carbide tooling process. Computer menu style interface is used to control the machine. Operators of a CNC lathe need a high level of knowledge regarding the machine in order to set and operate the CNC.

Design of a CNC lathe can vary depending on the manufacturer’s needs. That being said, all CNC lathes have common elements. For example, the turret always holds and indexes the tool holders. The spindle will always hold the workpiece and slides always move the turret.

What are Gaskets?

gasketWe all have some terms that we throw around everyday, but really have no idea what they mean. Some of the few that I can admit to not fully comprehending until recently are “fiber optics,” “pasteurization” and, although I used it less frequently, “string theory.” One term that I hear people say a lot but never really understood was “gasket.”

This term usually conjured up images of turn of the century plants with a variety of pipes and steam emitting nozzles, but I never knew what exactly they were. It turns out that gaskets are simply the mechanical seals that are used to fill the space between two surfaces. Now that I know what they are, I feel pretty foolish, especially since I see and use gaskets everyday.
