CUSTOM

From your basic RING GASKET with an Inner Dimension and Outer Dimension, to the most complex parts with numerous cutouts and boltholes… you provide the drawing, we can make the gasket. The most important feature of the gasket is the high unit load generated by the narrow sealing area provides a considerably higher flange clamping pressure and a better seal at a lower clamping force. The standard gasket material is 304 SS, with two (2) tracks of Flexible Graphite sealing elements. Specialty gasket material and/or sealing elements are available as options.
