Enhanced Kiln and Dryer Seal

Most kiln and dryer seals available today are not 100% air tight. A recent enhancement to FlexMET, closes this gap. Bairicade is a patent-pending cover that encloses the metal leaf/graphite pad seal inside a flexible vapor barrier to further enhance sealing performance.

Rated to 1800ºF, Bairicade covers the metal leaf and 100% graphite wear pad components of FlexMET in their entirety, further reducing potential flow of gasses or dust through the seal as it moves in response to the eccentric motion of the kiln shell. Secured by the existing mounting ring, the cover is a plug and play addition to FlexMET. As with all of the company’s products, Bairicade is completely customizable in size and material.
