PITTSBURGH, April 14, 2016 – Lewis-Goetz will join Advanced Sealing and Leader Gasket Technologies—all members of the ERIKS group—to exhibit a full offering of proven sealing solutions for the refining industry at booth #546 during the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers’ (AFPM) 2016 Reliability & Maintenance Conference and Exhibition. The conference will take place from May 24–27, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. Advanced Sealing also will co-present a professional development seminar, entitled, “ERRIC-Based Sealing Protocols for Leak-Free Performance.”

Lewis-Goetz will display a variety of innovative sealing technologies and other value-added solutions for the refining industry, including Advanced Sealing’s ALKY-ONE™ gasket. First introduced in 2011, the ALKY-ONE™ gasket is the industry’s leading technology for combatting flange erosion and corrosion in hydrofluoric acid alkylation units (HF units), one of the most critical sealing applications in the oil-refining industry.

“ERRIC-Based Sealing Protocols for Leak-Free Performance” is a professional development seminar that will be co-presented by David Clover, Advanced Sealing; Dave Reeves, Sealing and Bolting Technologies LLC; and Mark Ruffin, Chevron USA, Inc. Clover’s presentation will discuss the ERRIC Sealing System–based protocols for leak-free performance, and covers the root causes of flange leakage, as well as the simple engineering principals, material, and procedural changes that can provide leak-free performance. The seminar provides participants with the tools and resources to quickly incorporate these improvements into their facilities.
