Boiler Door Joints
Boiler door joints
We stock Topog-E type boiler door joints (pictured), and hand make woven proof boiler door joints.
We have a loyal following of traction engines enthusiasts, who will testify to the quality of joints produced. We use a brass wire reinforced, woven and proofed, base material that has with similar characteristics to the traditional asbestos based joints that are now banned.
Customers report that these joints give by far the best performance compared with other variants on the market.
Boiler door joints can be ordered by the inside dimensions (major and minor axis), flange width and thickness (6mm or 4 ply are most common). Alternatively, supply us with your boiler door and we can manufacture an exact fit.
Joints are finished with a graphite wash to aid dismantling, when the engine is serviced. When first installed, and the engine fired up, the door should be tightened when pressure is achieved. After this no further leakage should occur, and the joint will cure in place.
We are quality assured to ISO 9001:2008, and ISO 14001: 2004.
