Reliability and security (including the environmental aspect) of equipment, operating under excessive pressure, depend substantially on the faultiness of seals and their different joints. Under conditions of general production automation, the especially important objective is the provision of sealing and reliable operation of executive and adjusting devices (for TPPs it concerns, first of all, the stop and control valves). Occurrence of vaporizations, flows, decapsulation of joints can result in equipment failure, emission of toxic and harmful substances, forced standstills of high-value equipment, for which one hour of downtime could cost hundreds and millions rubles.
