At the simplest level, a gasket does nothing more than make sure a pipe connection doesn’t leak. Spiral Wound gaskets, first introduced in 1912, offer an inexpensive solution (along with sheet gaskets) to sealing a pipe flange in your most common applications. That is until they leak!
Selco’s gasket construction is unique. Beads of a sealing element (often flexible graphite) run thru tracks compressed into a single corrugated metal carrier. This simple, yet highly effective, design allows for performance superior than any alternative.
Selco’s technology will prove beneficial before it’s even in service! Our gaskets are easier to install, require less torque to seal, and are virtually impossible to over-torque. With our self-locator gaskets you can eliminate the possible of incorrect gasket installation.
The Selco Seal® gaskets superior performance results in costs savings in all areas, including production downtime, product loss, repair costs, etc. Your cost of ownership will be a fraction of the competitors gasket, because once you install a Selco Seal® gasket, you can forget about it. It is a permanent fix. With leakage rates of <10ppm and a long history of performance in demanding applications, now is the time to install the finest gasket available. For additional technical information, you can refer to the Data Sheets for each product line. For more information on the gasket design, please contact us today!
How it Works
The metal carrier encapsulates the sealing element making the gasket blowout proof. The sealing element is energized so less seating stress is required. Thermal cycling is absorbed, and a seal is maintained without re-torquing.
Stages of Compression
The final stage of Selco gasket compression creates a live load that protects against thermal process cycling -maintaining a leak-free seal even when flanges flow apart.
Ability to cope against severe thermal cycling and vibration.
Inherent Live Loading capability.
Fire, Blow Out and Leak proof.
Superior pressure handling.
Cannot be over compressed.
No need to re-torque.
True compression seal.
Eliminates fugitive emissions.
