Textile Industry

The Carolinas have been home to the Textile Industry since the early 1900’s. Today’s dye & finishers are faced with the challenge of keeping multiple manufacturers of various older equipment in operational order. Lifter reels, dye pumps, and sample pumps are just some of the equipment used in this industry. So if your plant uses: Brazzoli, Fong, Gaston County, Scholl America, Sclavos, Tiece, or TSI, rest assured that Flowserve offers a sealing solution for your application.

Series 80/CPM

null

The Series 80 seal is one of Flowserve’s Heritage products that has a proven track record of performance. Built with premium materials, this Stationary designed, Hydraulically balanced seal succeeds in the most challenging applications.

Flowserve spun off the more popular sizes of the Series 80 and formed the CPM seal which allows us to compete with today’s low cost seal manufacturers. The CPM line of seals are used for competitor change outs in general service applications. Compared to other light duty seals, the CPM seal weights 30% more due to the heavy duty gland design. The flush port is also larger than most light duty seals making the CPM seal a better all-around choice.
