Employing new materials produced in a proprietary process, the LumiShield series of gas-control components (photo) provides significantly better corrosion resistance and chemical inertness than that provided by traditional metals, such as stainless steel and exotic alloys, says the manufacturer. The extremely flexible, chemically inert, and wear-resistant material provides more than 200 times the corrosion resistance of stainless steel and four times that of exotic alloys in both highly caustic and acidic applications, says the company. Available in the manufacturer’s fully configurable line of pressure- and flow-control equipment, LumiShield increases component longevity and reduces product contamination in both acidic and caustic systems up to 5,500 psig and over 400°F. — AURA Controls, Virginia Beach, Va.
