Groupe Latty delivers comprehensive sealing solutions



Groupe Latty delivers comprehensive sealing solutions for industrial valves and fittings, including the supply of standard and tailored parts as well as qualification and training.

The standard-forerunner in the industrial sealing sector, Groupe Latty owes its leadership to a willingness to invest in R&D in order to develop products that meet specific industrial valve and fitting requirements. At its plant at Brou, Eure-et-Loir, France, the Group designs and manufactures products that meet the highest industrial standards.

Latty develops comprehensive sealing solutions suited to each type of industrial valves. Two new packings for stuffing boxes LATTYpack Valve and LATTYpack Control round out the valve sealing range, These packings consist of several preformed rings with a fully controlled height under load and are used in valve stuffing boxes. They reduce friction by up to 30% through the presence of an agent specifically developed by the Latty Group and in this way extend the lifetime of stuffing boxes. The new packings have obtained ISO 15848-1, API 622, 624, 589 and PMUC certification.

Moreover, our valve and fitting test laboratory enables us to test sealing solutions on customers’ equipment under optimum operating conditions. For several years manufacturers of industrial valves have been asking us to certify their equipment in order to ensure compliance with the standards required by major buyers in the petrochemical, chemical, food-processing and pharmaceutical industries. To date, we have performed over 100 certifications on equipment items such as control valves, on/off valves, valves measuring 1″ to 10″ and in pressure classes ranging from 150 to 2,500 lbs (20 to 420 bars), with validation by the relevant bodies. This equipment now complies with existing regulations relative to fugitive emissions, fire and oxygen tests.

In order to ensure the optimum assembly and operation of our customers’ equipment, we provide training via multilingual modules based on the choice of sealing solution for industrial valves in order to meet the operational requirements specific to each industrial environment. Training is carried out on our valve training benches with a focus on good practices in the fitting of stuffing boxes and static sealing solutions in order to ensure the safety of your personnel and the reliability of your equipment. GROUPE LATTY is an approved training organisation by the Regional Dirctorate of Labour, Employment and Training Centre for France (under number 24750019028).
