New Line Blind Introduced By Marland Environmental Systems—Literature Offered

Literature is available on a new line blind recently introduced by Marland Environmental Systems, Inc., Walworth, Wis. Ideal f o r use on tankers, barges and associated applications, the device acts to prevent leakage in inert gas systems and pipelines for fluid cargoes, fuel oil and ballast.

"This isn't just another line blind," said Bob Daniels, Marland's vice president and marketing director. "This is an entirely new concept. The Marland Line Blind will v i r t u a l l y e l i m i n a te downtime with very little maintenance needed." In the Marland Line Blind, a pair of steel discs are connected by a spreading mechanism and faced with compressed asbestos gaskets.

Positive seating is achieved with no metal-to-metal contact to cause friction and wear. The flow in the piping is sealed tight on both sides with an open space in between.

"To inspect for leakage," explained Mr. Daniels, "you just take a quick glance into the open space between the disc. If you ever find a leak on one side, you can stop it before it becomes a problem. All you do is replace the gasket with standard asbestos packing t h a t ' s a v a i l a b l e anywhere." The new line blind is stocked in standard sizes from 2 inches to 18 inches, and can be fabricated to order in custom sizes as well. "Marland's worldwide locations can deliver it right off the shelf anywhere in the world," Mr.

Daniels added.
