Gaskets & Packing
A gasket is a mechanical seal which fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, generally to prevent leakage from or into the joined objects while under compression. Gaskets allow for “less-than-perfect” mating surfaces on machine parts where they can fill irregularities. Gaskets are commonly produced by cutting from sheet materials. Gaskets for specific applications, such as high-pressure steam systems, may contain asbestos. However, due to health hazards associated with asbestos exposure, non-asbestos gasket materials are used when practical.
It is usually desirable that the gasket is made from a material that is to some degree yielding such that it is able to deform and tightly fill the space it is designed for, including any slight irregularities. A few gaskets require an application of sealant directly to the gasket surface to function properly.There are various types and sizes of gaskets. Spiral-wound gaskets comprise a mix of metallic and filler material. Generally, the gasket has a metal wound outwards in a circular spiral with the filler material wound in the same manner but starting from the opposing side. This results in alternating layers of filler and metal. The filler material in these gaskets acts as the sealing element, with the metal providing structural support. These gaskets have proven to be reliable in most applications, and allow lower clamping forces than solid gaskets, albeit with a higher cost.
A ring-type joint gasket is a high integrity sealing gasket, high temperature and high-pressure gasket for applications in the petroleum industry, oilfield drilling, pressure vessels joints, pipes, and valves etc. According to API 6A and ASME B16.20, ring joint gaskets are used for numerous industrial applications based on the customer required specifications.
Gaskets are used in a wide variety of applications in a diverse range of environments. Gasket types include o-rings, which are the most common type of gasket made of synthetic rubber and account for a large portion of rubber gasket use. However, many other basic gasket seals are made out of rubber for commercial and industrial use on pipes, wood, and other applications. These gaskets can perform well with other rubber materials, various kinds of metal and even wood. Sealant must be incorporated to ensure a solid seal.
Neoprene has a low-temperature range and can be used in applications where temperatures dip as low as -65 degrees F. For this reason, it is often used with refrigerants in refrigeration and air conditioner units. Unfortunately, neoprene sometimes features lead components. For that reason, it is important to take precautions when handling or using neoprene to prevent human health issues. These non – asbestos gaskets are widely acclaimed for their qualities such as durability, smooth finish and higher resistance to corrosion and chemicals by our clients. These are cut from Non-asbestos jointing sheets which are used in various application from light to medium to higher loading & Oil resistance Gasket material with excellent Thermal, Chemical & Mechanical properties. These jointing also offered resistance to oil and hydrocarbons under severe operating conditions.
