Palmyra, NY — Garlock Klozure, a division of Garlock Sealing Technologies, has acquired the Syntron RP Mechanical Seal line from FMC Technologies Inc., Houston, Tex.

The Syntron acquisition extends Garlock Klozures dynamic sealing portfolio for todays industrial process market, says Tim Magill, product manager. While growing the breadth of our dynamic sealing products, this mechanical seal fits well with our strategic direction.

Garlock Klozure provides critically important fluid sealing solutions to core industrial markets. Our engineered solutions are key in a broad range of services in the chemical processing, power generation and primary metals industries. explains Magill. Syntron RP seals add to the solutions our customers can expect from Garlock Klozure.
