Metallic Gaskets - Spiral Wound, Kammprofile and more
Metallic gasket can refer to an all-metal or semi-metallic gasket. Semi-Metallic gaskets are made by combining soft materials, such as fillers or facings, with a metallic base or winding. The metal component provides strength and elasticity while the soft materials conform to the flange surface to create a seal. Two common types of Semi metallic gasket used in industry are Spiral Wound and Kammprofile gaskets. Purely metallic gaskets are fabricated from a single metal or a combination of metallic materials in a variety of shapes and sizes. These metallic gaskets are suitable for high temperature and pressure applications such as Ring Type Joints (RTJ) found in oilfield applications. Higher loads are required to seat metallic gaskets. Types include flat, grooved, round cross-section solid metal, lens rings, Ring Type Joints (RTJ’s) and welded gaskets.
Spiral Wound Gaskets
Spiral Wound gaskets are a type of gasket consisting of a combination of metal windings and filler material, designed to provide a highly effective seal in applications with high temperature, pressure, and fluctuating conditions.
Kammprofile gaskets combine all of the desirable qualities of a solid metal gasket with the added advantages of a reduced area of contact, resulting in lower stress values required to achieve a seal.
High Temp Gaskets
Advanced fillers and facings for high pressures and temperatures to 1800°F (1000°C). These materials are fire-safe and provide exceptional performance in extreme conditions.
Heat Exchanger Gaskets
Heat exchanger gaskets for shell and tube type heat exchangers and industrial process equipment. Maintaining a tight seal even in the most extreme temperature and pressure fluctuations. Available in a wide variety of materials and configurations.
Ring Type Joint Gaskets
Ring Type Joint (RTJ) Metallic Gaskets for high pressure oil and gas production applications such as valves and piping assemblies used on drilling rigs.
