Seals For Bottom Discharge Systems

There are two types of sand discharge systems: conical valve and bottom door discharge systems. We can manufacture seals for both and have proven to be very cost-effective and with substantially shorter lead times than our competitors on these types of seal.

In addition to Hatch seals, we can also manufacture Dry Dock Door Seals, Rubber Fenders and Buffers, Lip Seals, Caisson Seals and Barge Seals, meaning easier and safer access for repairs and maintenance in the dry dock industry.

The high quality compounds ensure long life in gate and dam seals. They are extensively tested for abrasion and tearing, so that Walker Rubber dredging and dry dock components last a long time, with no deterioration in performance. Whether you're searching for canal gates, radials, sluice or vertical gate solutions, we can help you quickly and cost-effectively.

Dredging is another area of specialism at Walker Rubber. We produce and supply rubber components that have high tensile strengths, an ability to withstand high water pressures, with high vacuum properties.
