The Type 609HTC is a high-temperature bellows assembly intended for those demanding applications where a dependable, high-strength, rotating seal is preferred. Typical applications for these seals include hydrocarbons, aromatic fractionation products, crude oil fractionation products and heat transfer fluids, as well as chemicals, caustics, some acids, aqueous solutions and lubricating liquids. This seal utilizes "HTC" technology with an all-Inconel, corrosion-resistant welded metal bellows for reliably sealing fluids in harsh high-temperature, corrosive environments and, at the same time, provides superior face stability at elevated temperatures. This all-Inconel seal is ideally suited for applications that contain organic acids (naphthenic acid), and sulfur compounds that attack most other alloys at high temperatures. The Type 609HTC is utilized in our Type 2609HTC and Type 3609HTC API 682/ISO 21049 Type C Arrangement 2 and 3 cartridge seals.
