Advanced Industrial Coatings

Progressive Sealing and Chesterton have been protecting critical structures and equipment with ARC Advanced Industrial Coatings technology for over 25 years. ARC industrial coatings are scientifically engineered to protect metal and concrete from the damage and costly problems associated with abrasion, erosion, corrosion, chemical attack, and atmospheric corrosion.

By educating ourselves on your needs and critical success factors, we can provide you with the best solution by using:

  • Site analysis
  • Product test validation
  • Proposal development
  • Application implementation
  • Project documentation
  • Review

Industrial equipment faces adverse environmental conditions that attack metallic components and structures, resulting in compromised plant reliability and safety, and loss of profits. When facing these conditions you need to select not only a great product like ARC, but also a great company to stand by you. Progressive Sealing understands your specific needs and can make recommendations for the best long-term solution. When cementitious or metallic surfaces are subject to aggressive industrial application environments you can rely on us.

We offer zero VOC, 100% solids composites for use in a broad spectrum of industrial applications such as:

  • Emergency repairs and resurfacing
  • Erosion/corrosion at elevated temperatures
  • Impact and aggressive sliding abrasion
  • Severe chemical immersion and corrosive vapor exposures

Mechanical Seals

Advanced technology is the key to Chesterton Mechanical Seal performance.  Our customers look to us to provide complete, up-to-date solutions to the full range of pump leakage problems.

With the new, third generation cartridge seals, we have the ability to meet customers’ increasingly stringent emission control needs with greatly extended MTBPM (Mean Time Between Planned Maintenance).

We can now reference emissions in just a few parts per million – well within regulatory compliance limits.  Our total line of general service and specialized mechanical seals can fulfill the plant-wide needs of most process industries and a surprisingly cost-effective value.  Now, with the new Streamline™ S10 Single and S20 Dual Seals we can offer plant-wide fluid sealing needs in one set of seals.  But the S-Series goes beyond the basics of fluid sealing, to address the economies of total sealing workflow. S-Series will streamline inventory, simplify seal selection, reduce installation complexity and minimize total maintenance costs.

Chesterton’s Engineered Solutions cell can also provide out-of-the-box thinking for difficult to seal and custom applications.

If there isn’t a seal available off the shelf for your needs, we can easily design and build one to suit.  Any of the following seals can be designed for your application:

  • Cartridge Seals
  • Split Seals
  • Gas Seals
  • Bellows Seals
  • Slurry Seals
  • Mixer Seals
  • Component Seals
  • Seal Support Tanks and Systems

Packing & Gasketing

Chesterton is a worldwide manufacturer and distributor of the highest performing sealing devices including pump and valve packings, pump sealants, live loading technology, sheet gaskets, joint sealants and metal gaskets for a wide range of applications.

While packing and gasketing are considered by some to be technologies of the past, they can still provide a technological advantage even over seemingly more-advanced products. Chesterton has demonstrated this with their incredibly broad installed base and the ability to continuously research and advance the state-of-the-art for these technologies.

Our advanced packings provide such benefits as substantial water reduction, superior leakage and emissions control, the ability to operate at high pressures and speeds, and the ability to withstand process chemicals and reduce sleeve and stem scoring. Our sheet gasketing features high stability, reinforced synthetics that provide excellent sealability and superior reliability.

Our joint sealants provide long lasting high reliability seals that are fast and easy to use. Chesterton Live Loading technology has become the worldwide standard for long-term, low-emissions, low-maintenance packing.
