Baum PTFE liners are paste extruded. This ensures permeation resistance that exceeds the isostatically molded PTFE products common in the US. This claim is supported by independent testing by the Korrosionsinstitutet of Sweden.
Many of the Baum fittings will be upgraded to injection molded PFA. This is an even higher quality polymer with mechanical properties and permeation resistance that normally come at a much higher price. Injection molding these fi ttings means that Baum products come with full penetration welds unlike the welded over designs.
Baum metal housings will feature rotating A105 forged steel flanges as standard. Most domestic producers typically charge for similar upgrades.
Quality is verified by rigorous testing and assured with Insurance company certification. The Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) requires not only participation in an ISO quality program but 100% traceability, spark and hydro testing, constant batch testing and permanent marking. Individual Baum components can be traced online for your convenience.
Greater flexibility in design (Schedule 10 stainless steel systems, DIN dimensions, electro-polished stainless steel exteriors, conductive PTFE, etc) is available.
