Product range includes

Gaskets & Sheet Jointings

James Walker manufactures and supplies complete ranges of metallic and semi-metallic joints, gaskets and sheet jointings to suit every industrial application.

In addition, we produce precision-cut flat gaskets to any shape, size and quantity from any sheet material, including our own extensive ranges of jointings. A vast stock of flange gaskets is held ready for immediate despatch, and we can economically cut non-standard profiles of any complexity within minutes.



Rotary Seals

The four main points to consider are:
  • Bearing protection
  • Lubricant retenion
  • Exclusion of contaminants
  • Minimising the leakage of fluid media.

James Walker caters for these needs at every industrial level with three complete families of seals, and a patented installation technique that avoids costly dismantling.

Hydraulic Sealing Products  

Our family of hydraulic sealing components provides the optimum sealing solutions for almost every hydraulic application - from the most accurate instruments and control actuators up to the heaviest forging and extrusion presses.

Each product has been specially developed and proven to give:

  • Optimum equipment performance
  • Reduced leakage
  • Low friction operation
  • Long trouble-free operating life.

'O' Rings

The seemingly humble 'O' ring is an exceptionally versatile sealing device. Applications ranging from garden hose couplings to critical aerospace duties make it the world's most popular volume produced seal.



Compression Packings 

The packed gland is an exceptionally reliable fluid sealing device that is simple to install and maintain. Not only is it highly versatile, but also remarkably cost effective in both plant downtime and materials - especially when compared to complex alternatives.

Our constant advances in materials and lubricants, product design and manufacturing techniques, keep us at the forefront of compression packing technology. We therefore bring you one of the widest ranges of packings to match the temperatures, pressures and speeds of your most modern fluid handling systems, and economical packings for your older plant.

Expansion Joints & Bellows 
James Walker Townson designs and manufactures ranges of flexible bellows and expansion joints from non-asbestos materials. These cater for industrial duties across the temperature range -60°C to +1000°C.

Plant Maintenance Services 

James Walker companies supply industry worldwide with professional plant maintenance and refurbishment services that go well beyond the accepted norms in terms of: 

  • Professional advice and planning 
  • Quality of on-site and off-site workmanship 
  • Standards of safety and care 
  • Customer satisfaction from initial survey to completion and beyond.
