By Chemical Engineering |

This company’s Viewin Technology greatly facilitates seal identification and maintenance by providing wireless record-keeping in a mobile app (photo). Users can access relevant seal information immediately, even when equipment is running. Each ViewIn-enabled seal is equipped with RFID tags that can be read using a Bluetooth-connected RFID reader to retrieve pertinent seal information, sealing device drawings, pressure test reports, materials of construction and other supplementary items. The new technology is initially available in the company’s S10 and S20 cassette seals. — A.W. Chesterton Co., Groveland, Mass.
