Kammprofile Gasket is consist of a metal core, concentrically grooved serrations profile on both sides , and faced with soft material such as flexible graphite, PTFE, Non-Asbestos materials or some soft material . According to the different media and temperature, choose the different metal material and surface soft material. The soft facing material provides low stress gasket seating, while the serrated metal core enhances sealing performance by inducing stress concentrations on the sealing surfaces. It features excellent anti blowout properties associated with the reliability of a solid meta-to-metal seal combined with soft sealing face to ensure a tighter joint. It can be used without sealing layers to provide an excellent sealing but there is a risk of flange surface damage especially at high seating pressure.
Basic Type Kammprofile Gasket
It manufactured without a guide ring for tongue and groove, or recessed flange applications such as male and female.
Kammprofile Gasket with integral Outer Ring
It is constructed with an integral guide ring for aligning purposes. It is suggested to be used in raised face flanges.
Kammprofile Gasket with Loose Outer Ring
It utilizes a loose fit guide ring. This popular design is preferred for nominal pipe size and pressure class raised face flanges and is used in equipment with excessive radial shear characteristics, thermal cycling, and expansions.
It is particularly suitable for applications where high temperature, pressures and fluctuating conditions are encountered.
Soft material sealing surface ensure that flanges are not damaged, even at extreme loads.
This gasket is an ideal replacement for problem applications associated with jacketed gaskets, for heat exchangers, vessels and reactors and various flange connections.
