Gaskets

The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.

Gaskets

Flextron is a leading organisation involved in the manufacture of industrial gaskets, and we are now recognised in the market for the production of advanced custom gaskets.

Our gaskets are being used in well-known factories and sector of all types of manufactures. We also produce numerous other vehicle and industrial spare parts and press accessories.

What are the gaskets, though?

The gasket is a mechanical seal that covers the gap between two or more mating surfaces, usually to avoid leakage from or into the jointed parts when under compression.

Gaskets enable "less-than-perfect" mating surfaces on machine parts where defects can be filled. Gaskets are typically obtained by cutting from sheet materials.

Gaskets for special uses, like high-pressure steam systems, can contain asbestos.

Nevertheless, owing to health risks associated with exposure to asbestos, non-asbestos gasket products are used where possible.


Why Gaskets are used?

Leakage from the flange joint can be catastrophic. Flange leakage results in substance and energy loss. No plant operator needs to spill poisonous or dangerous chemicals that could damage people and the environment.

The gasket could help to achieve secure sealing in order to avoid leakage from the flange joints.

The kind of gaskets to be used in the operation of the fluid depends on different parameters including

  • Temperature – The gasket material must be able to tolerate the full design temperature spectrum of the fluid it treats.
  • Pressure – The gasket material must be able to endure the whole construction pressure spectrum of the fluid it treats.
  • Corrosion resistance – The gasket material does not corrode when it comes into contact with the fluid it treats or when exposed to the environment.
  • Types of fluid – Gasket material must be capable of handling various types of fluid when placed in a line that carries more than one kind of fluid.
  • Robustness – The gasket should be able to tolerate any displacement that can occur due to changes in temperature and pressure.
  • Availability – The gasket must be easily available, and at Flextron, we also provide customised products that match your requirements.
  • Cost – We provide the best prices in the market, without hampering the quality of the product.

Frequently Asked Questions

Elements for gaskets can be separated into three main categories:

  • Non-metallic types
  • Semi-metallic types
  • Metallic types

It is generally beneficial that the gasket is constructed of a material that yields, to a degree, so that it is capable of deforming and securely filling the space with which it is intended, despite some minor irregularities. Any types of gaskets need a sealant to be added directly to the gasket surface in order to operate properly.

The appropriate choice of the gasket relies on the following considerations:

  • Reliability of the gasket content with the oil.
  • Capacity to tolerate device pressure-temperature.
  • The life in service of the gasket

The measurements of the gasket are covered by the following criteria.

  • BS 3381 – Metallic Spiral Wound Gaskets
  • ASME B 16.20 -Metallic Gaskets for pipe flanges
  • ASME B 16.21-Non-metallic Gaskets for pipe flanges.
