MANWAY

The Drum MANWAY offers Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs) the advantages of lower gasket seating load, the ability to be used in a wide range of surface finishes and operating pressures, and a gasket which is designed to stay in place during closing. Eliminate problems with leakage, gasket surface damage, gasket blow out, damage to other equipment and/or personnel. 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.
