AST products have been designed and manufactured in the USA for more than three decades, so AST clients can depend on our reliable and proven industry experience.
Thordon’s oil and grease-free polymer bearings and seals require minimal maintenance. Both time and money are saved with less downtime than competitive materials.
Oil and grease discharges to the environment are eliminated when using our bearings. Our products currently meet and exceed all environmental regulations.
Thordon bearings are lubricated with water or operate dry so you eliminate the costs of purchasing, storing and disposing of oil, grease, and EALs.
The simplicity and durability of our polymer bearing designs and systems provide a superior alternative to oil or grease lubricated metal bearings
Our polymer bearings, seals and systems have been designed for long life operation with minimal spare parts and maintenance required.
Seal-Ryt Corp. is the industry leader in rotating shaft sealing technology. Our engineers have years of experience in the science of sealing. We hold multiple patents on our innovative building designs and sealing technology. That's also why our products last longer, get better results, and simply seal better than any other products available.
Sealex® joint sealant, specially processed, 100% pure PTFE on a roll, provides soft, highly compressible gasketing for longer life and trouble-free sealing. Its form-in-place versatility also cuts maintenance and storage costs. The high compressibility of Sealex® enables it to effectively fill flange imperfections for a tight, leak-free seal. Under pressure, it provides a wide, thin, ribbon-like seal. Unlike conventional PTFE which is prone to cold flow, Sealex® has good creep resistance and bolt torque retention properties.
Developed for the food processing and production industry, PacFlange is designed to replace the conventional greased roller bearing thereby eliminating grease completely and providing a zero maintenance solution.
PacFlange consists of a food grade approved housing, a marine grade stainless steel sleeve (grub screwed to the shaft), which runs on a ThorPlas-White bush. This material is an engineered food grade thermoplastic that is self-lubricating with low friction and wear properties - specifically designed for FOOD and WATER handling environments.
