Heat Exchanger Gaskets
Using the right gaskets is of paramount importance in the performance of a heat exchanger.
Our gasket specialists refer to a database providing information on temperatures and pressures to which the gasket is exposed in its working condition. This database helps us determine the right gasket for the application.
Two types of Viton gaskets are supplied – FKMT and FKMG. these are meant for high temperature steam applications. Viton gaskets are for use with stainless steel plates up to 180°C (356°F) and with titanium plates up to 100°C (212°F).
NBR gaskets are are ideal for water-to-water applications in non-process related duties such as heat recovery and potable water applications. NBR gaskets can be used for temperatures up to 138°C (280° F).
EPDM and EPDMP:
EPDM gaskets have a resistance to water, steam, salt solutions, acids and alkalies.EPDM gaskets are used with water-to-water and high temperature applications.
OTHER TYPES OF GASKETS FOR SPECIFIC APPLICATIONS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE
