Types Of Gaskets

Types Of GasketsA wide array of gaskets finds application in various programs, distinguished by their material, function, and application. These gaskets inherit properties from the materials they are made of and are categorized into several types, each serving specific purposes. Here's a breakdown of the most common types:

Rubber Gaskets: Made from elastomers like natural rubber, nitrile, neoprene, and EPDM, rubber gaskets offer versatility and resilience. They find applications in pipe gaskets, manways, heat exchangers, and more.

Cork Gaskets: These gaskets blend cork with elastomers to provide flexibility and compression. Widely used in oil, gas, and solvent applications, cork gaskets offer durability and reliable sealing.

Non-Asbestos Gaskets: Comprising compressed fiber with elastomer bindings, non-asbestos gaskets are resistant to acid, oil, steam, and water. They serve various industrial applications requiring robust sealing solutions.

Furthermore, gaskets are classified into three main groups based on their composition:

Metallic Gaskets: Constructed from soft iron, low carbon steel, or stainless steel, metallic gaskets excel in high-pressure and high-temperature applications, such as high-pressure class flanges. They are durable but require high-pressure bolting for proper sealing.

Non-Metal Gaskets: Comprising rubber, graphite, Teflon, PTFE, or compressed non-asbestos fiber, non-metal gaskets offer flexibility and easy compression. They are ideal for low-pressure class flanges and are cost-effective and readily available.

Semi-Metal Gaskets: Combining metal and non-metallic materials, semi-metal gaskets cater to diverse temperature and pressure applications. Examples include spiral wound, metallic jacketed, and Kamprofile gaskets, offering flexibility and durability as per application requirements.
