Material

Selecting the wrong gasket can be a timely and costly mistake.we recommend the most durable and cost effective gasket material for your application by providing us with the pressure, temperature and process liquid details.

Buna (NBR/Nitrile), EPDM or Viton materials are the most common plate & frame heat exchanger gaskets depending on the operating application.

AGGRESSIVE CHEMICAL COMPOUNDS

Changes in Gaskets:

  • Time – Relaxes
  • Temperature – Deteriorates
  • Oxidizing Agents – Hardens
  • Swelling – Chemical Absorption

Gaskets Material Depends on:

  • Fluids Used
  • Temperature and Pressure
    Glue – no tabs and in most cases the brown glue is visible under the gasket; typically used in high pressure or high temperature applications

Ball – used in HVAC or FDA applications to allow for easy removal in the field
