Metal Jacketed Gaskets
Metal jacketed gaskets are semi-metallic gaskets in which a non-metallic filler is jacketed with sheet metal to produce a seal of exceptional strength. The soft filler allows for better compressibility as compared to a pure metallic gaskets. This makes for better sealability on irregular flange surfaces. The application temperature is limited by the filler material and the metal´s endurance. There is a minimum lap width whch must be taken into consideration when relatively small diameters or radii are required.
These are special metal jacketd gaskets.The filler is of pure expanded graphite and the stainless steel metal is profiled with concentric circles.The center is reinforced with a preformed stainless steel ring.which offers exceptional strength to prevent blowout.The gasket offers high sealability and great strength and is used at elevated tempertaures and pressures.
