Garlock, a manufacturer of high-performance fluid sealing and pipeline protection products, has announced their presence at KORMARINE 2015, 20 - 23 October in Busan, Korea, along with Garlock Pipeline Technologies (GPT).
Garlock and GPT will be exhibiting in partnership with Samsung Precision Engineering (SSPE), an authorized distributor of Pikotek® and PSI® products in Korea. This partnership gives Garlock and GPT the ability to better serve Korean offshore customers and shipbuilding EPC contractors by conducting consolidated business with both Garlock and GPT.
On display at the show will be a variety of products meant for use in the offshore industry, including:
- Premium GYLON® gaskets, a family of flat polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) gasketing materials manufactured to decrease creep relaxation problems that typically plague PTFE products.
- Flange Isolation kit gaskets, designed to effectively complete the electrical isolation of a flanged assembly.
- High-durability expansion joints, meant to protect pipelines on offshore platforms from damage due to physical movement, thermal change, load stress, pumping surges, wear or settling.
All Garlock and GPT products designed for the offshore industry provide superior performance, reliability and service, and perform exceptionally well in critical environments.
"Korea is a leader in the global offshore construction industry," said David Campos, Global EPC Segment Leader for EPC & OEM segments. "Our partnership with SSPE enables Korean offshore customers to explore an even wider variety of high-quality, reliable pipeline sealing solutions at KORMARINE." Campos added that the partnership with SSPE makes Garlock and GPT a total solutions provider for offshore construction needs in the Asian region.
The show will be held at BEXCO (Busan Exhibition and Convention Center), where Garlock and GPT will be represented by SSPE at Booth 7H19, Hall 6.
