Metal Jacketed Gaskets
Metallic gaskets can come in different styles like; double jacket, single jacket, or solid metal. Soft compressible filler material can be flexible graphite, PTFE, or non-asbestos compressed sheet type. The design of a metal jacketed gasket also may require different shapes and the styles mentioned above can be made to a variety. Lamons jacketed gaskets are normally manufactured with a high temperature filler. The standard filler is normally sufficient for applications up to 900º F. Other soft fillers are available for higher temperatures or special applications. The choice of the metal used for the jacketed part of the gasket would depend upon the corrosive conditions being encountered.
