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.
Ability to cope against severe thermal cycling and vibration.
Inherent Live Loading capability.
Fire, Blow Out, and Leak proof.
Superior pressure handling.
Protects against use of wrong gasket.
Lowers total sealing costs.
Cannot be over compressed.
No need to re-torque.
Eliminates fugitive emissions.
US Navy approved.
