Product variants

Spiraltherm Mica 9596/GA
Spiral wound gasket with outer guide ring.
Standard type for raised faced flanges.
Spiraltherm Mica 9596/GIA
Spiral wound gasket with inner and outer guide ring offers the best performance in raised faced and flat flanges
The inner ring is used to:
- avoid over-compression at elevated seating loads in high pressure service
- reduce turbulence within the flange area and protects against corrosion or erosion
- improve the load distribution over the gasket
Spiraltherm Mica 9596/NF
Spiral wound gasket without guide ring or inner ring.
This style of gasket is used in load-bearing flange configurations, such as tongue and groove flanges.
Standard dimensions according to EN/ASME.
Spiraltherm Mica 9596/VR
Spiral wound gasket without inner ring or outer guide ring.
Mainly used for male and female flanges or projection and recess flanges.
Spiraltherm Mica 9596/VRI
Spiral wound gasket with inner ring.
Mainly used for male and female flanges or projection and recess flanges.
An inner ring is necessary as a compression stop.

Buralloy Heat exchanger seal 2500

The Buralloy heat exchanger seal 2500 is a semi-metal gasket with a soft core and metal jacketing. The Buralloy 2500 thus combines the benefits of a compressible soft seal with the mechanical strength of a metal seal. As a result, it can be produced in many different material combinations and in different styles to suit the application.

Buralloy Ring Type Joint 2961

Buralloy ring-type joint 2961 (RTJ) gaskets are manufactured from metallic materials in compliance with American standard ASME B 16.20 and the API specification. Detailed monitoring of every manufacturing step guarantees that the sealing rings offer the necessary surface hardness. This creates a functional seal without damage to the flanges. This gasket type is used successfully in downstream refinery applications, for example. RTJ gaskets are also commonly used in high-pressure valves and the associated pipe connections and in pressure vessel joints.

Camprofile serrated gasket 9588

The serrated gasket 9588 has a concentrically-machined profile based on a 4 mm thick stainless steel base plate. This is coated on both sides with a 0.5 mm thick layer of pure graphite (purity > 98%). Thicker layers are available on request. The serrated gasket 9588 is easy to handle and is particularly suitable for applications in the chemical and petrochemical industries and in power station technology.
