1. Gaskets API Ring Joint

Our API Ring Joint Gaskets are used in applications up to 10,000 psi. Oval cross-section gaskets are still a very effective gasket solution where the application requires sealing on existing flanges with round bottom grooves.

Dimensions for API ring joint gaskets and grooves are covered in ANSI B16.20 and API6A.

2. Spiral Wound

Spiral Wound Gaskets. Composed of a steel centering (outer) ring, a spiral wound sealing strip (filler) and an inner ring made of special steel, spiral wound gaskets are created by winding alternating strips of metal and filler material.

3. Sheets

Gaskets are normally made from a flat material, a sheet such as paper, rubber, silicone, metal, cork, felt, neoprene, nitrile rubber, fiberglass, polytetrafluoroethylene (otherwise known as PTFE or Teflon) or a plastic polymer (such as polychlorotrifluoroethylene).

4. Rubber Seal Mech Seals

A mechanical seal is a device that helps join systems or mechanisms together by preventing leakage (e.g. in a plumbing system), containing pressure, or excluding contamination.

The effectiveness of a seal is dependent on adhesion in the case of sealants and compression in the case of gaskets.

5. O Rings

An O-ring is a donut, or torus shaped seal typically used to prevent the passing of air or fluid. In other words, Orings are used to keep fluid or air IN or OUT of a defined space
