Grooved Metal With Soft Layer Sheathed Gasket

Type WGR

Kammprofile gasket of this type is manufactured without a guide ring it is comprised of a core metal of any specification as required with concentric grooves on both sides that covered with Graphite or Expanded PTFE. It is typically used in heat exchanger applications and applied as an upgrade to double jacketed gaskets or Exchanger spiral wound gaskets especially when lower load is needed. When partition required same shall be attached with inner diameter of grooved ring.

Type IGR

Kammprofile gasket of this type is fabricate with an integral guide ring for aligning purposes. It is suggested to be used in raised face flanges. The Gasket comprised of a core metal of any specification as required with concentric grooves on both sides that covered with Graphite or Expanded PTFE. The sealing core is designed and sized per ASME B16.20, EN-12560-6 spec and depending on the flange specification the guide ring is sized to fit properly.

TYPE LGR

Kammprofile gasket of this type is processed along with a loose fitting guide ring. This popular design is preferred to be used for nominal pipe size and pressure class raised face flanges and is used in equipment with excessive radial shear characteristics, thermal cycling, and expansions. . The Gasket comprised of a core metal of any specification as required with concentric grooves on both sides that covered with Graphite or Expanded PTFE. The sealing core is designed and sized per ASME B16.20, EN-12560-6 spec and depending on the flange specification the loose fit guide ring is sized to fit properly. Also Kammprofile gaskets can be applied to high pressure up to very high temperature applications which is rated to 1500ºF.
