Problem

The installation of seals on vacuum/CF flanges has the problem that the seals can only with difficulties be precisely aligned and are very time-consuming


Solution

The solution is a preferably one-part semicircular mounting aid, which is introduced together with the seal into the gap of the flanges and precisely adjusts these. At the same time, the mounting aid can be secured to the flange with a snap-in connection so that both hands of the installer are free after sealing adjustment in order to fasten and tighten the flange screws. The mounting aid is thinner in this area than the seal and can then be simply removed/withdrawn again.


Advantages

- Very easy to use

- Very fast handling (saves a lot of time)

- Very cost-effective


Scope of application

- Installation and adjustment of seals for vaccum/CF flanges
