The graphite fiber gasketing with a unique manufacturing process minimizes cold flow and creep relaxation problems and is capable to withstand extreme temperatures, pressures and many chemicals. The gasket provides heat and oxidation resistance and passes Garlock Fire tests is ABS Fire Safe Type Approved. The gasket proves ideal for standard ANSI flanged connectors and turbine crossover piping connectors. It offers multiple applications in power generation, chemical processing, hydrocarbon processing, and other industries and works in steam*, oils, grease, water and heat transfer fluids+ media. Please contact Garlock Engineering with specific transfer fluid application.
The device features 4,800psi minimum recommended assembly stress and 6,000-10,000psi preferred assembly stress. Gasket thickness of 1/16" is strongly preferred. It is recommended to retorque the bolts/studs prior to pressurizing the assembly. For saturated steam above 150psig, consult Garlock Engineering.
