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:
Temperature and PressureGlue – 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
