INSERTABLE 

The INSERTABLE gasket design eliminates misalignment on installation, reduces inventory and virtually eliminates the chance of incorrect gasket selection. As a direct replacement for Spiral Wound and Cut Sheet Gaskets, INSERTABLE gaskets are a low cost, volume quantity alternative to our SELF LOCATOR that will satisfy 80% of your flange pressure class requirements. Use this gasket for 150# AND 300# standard ANSI flanges. 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.
