The Flange Insulation Gasket Kit is the most widely used form of controlling losses due to corrosion. Flange Insulation Gasket Kits can be used to control stray electric currents in piping at oil, gas, water, refinery, and chemical plants to increase the effectiveness of cathodic protection systems and confine or eliminate electrolytic corrosion.
The rubber-steel gasket consists of a fully rubber-jacketed support ring which gives the gasket additional stability. At the same time, it guarantees optimum sealing characteristics, even with low bolt forces and particularly for large diameters. So this seal can also be used in soft components such as plastic flanges. It is a robust seal for installation in load-bearing connection applications.
KAXITE has many standard size ring joint gaskets in stock and available for immediate shipment. These include all popular sizes of “R”, “RX”, and “BX” style gaskets. Dan-Loc Group stocked gaskets include Low Carbon Steel, F5, 304, and 316 materials.
Spiral wounds gaskets ( SWGs) are a great multi-purpose gasket used in piping systems throughout the world. They are somewhat inexpensive, durable and in most cases readily available (pending metallurgical and filler requirements). The good thing about SWGs is that they can be used in all pressure classes, 150# up to and including 2500#. The design of spiral wound gaskets makes them blowout resistant and well accepted within the industry as a “Fire Safe” type of gasket.
