Optimum squeezing force for an o ring

It is true that the more squeeze you place on an o ring, the tighter the seal it will provide. In essence, the more squeeze (compression) you apply, the greater the force between the o ring and its mating hardware.  And ensuring you have the perfect seal is all...

O Ring Squeeze

The squeeze and shrinkage on an o ring are vital to understanding as these factors stand in the way of your application either experiencing a perfect seal or your application suffering from leaks.  You can measure the shrinkage of an o ring during...

Keeping your o rings bonded

EMI o rings. Those seal ring gaskets are made of silicone compounds, combining environmental sealing with electromagnetic interference protection.  Consisting of metal or metal-coated particles, silicone o rings are filled with silver, silver aluminium, or nickel...

The importance of mechanical seals when reducing water consumption in mining

Environmental considerations are at the top of most industry's agendas in the 21st century as companies evaluate and improve operations, processes, and systems.  Conserving water in mining is one such area that is now being investigated further with the rotation of...

How choosing the correct gasket reduces risks

Health and Safety across any industry are vital, especially so in industrial facilities and settings.  Why?  Because harmful leaks and emissions must be avoided at all costs to avoid serious accidents or injury to your teams and property.  That’s why having the right...

How to tighten your bolts perfectly

How to tighten your bolts and which tools you should use to achieve the perfect seal is not as seamless and straightforward as we would like. Various factors come into play in these situations, such as bolt grade, size, and even application type.  Tightening torques...

Static and Dynamic o rings

A range of factors and application dynamics come into play when choosing a particular type of o ring.  You need to understand the type of seal exert you require, the dimensions, and even compounds.  Due to the nature of an o ring and its overall design, o rings use...

Gasket Sealants

Fortunately, no one gasket suits a range of applications, but rather we have a multitude of gasket sealants available to meet various specifications and requirements.  Ultimately, sealants are used to effectively ensure gasket seals.  Helping to extend a gasket's life...

Types of industrial gasket material

Different industry sectors will use different types of gaskets and different types of gasket materials.   And of course!  Different industrial gasket materials will be much better suited to some industrial processes and applications compared to others.  As different...

Keeping a close eye on the gaskets your applications use

Gaskets are vital elements to any piping system and application that requires creating the perfect seal in order to prevent leaks.  This is the main role of a gasket, to provide a good seal, with some gasket materials sealing better than others in certain...

Benefits of Kammprofile Gaskets

kammprofile gasket benefitsUsed to prevent leakage, gaskets are constructed to fit between a range of different sizes and types of surfaces in order to provide the perfect seal.  Typically used in pipes and heat exchangers, gaskets are widely used as industrial sealants. 

Kammprofile gaskets, however, can, and are, used in much more challenging applications.   

Those such as chemical plants, high-pressure manufacturing plants, or those sectors and industries using high-pressure hydrocarbons. 

The benefits of using kammprofile gaskets are wide and varied for each individual application. 

Below, we’ve highlighted the key benefits that kammprofile gaskets have to offer. 

  1. They maintain stability in high temperatures and high-pressure applications.  Kammprofile gaskets are incredibly durable and can provide enough resistance that they instantly act as a capable sealant.  This level of stability and adhesive structuring is especially beneficial in manufacturing and research plants where high pressure and fluctuating temperatures are the norm. 
  2. They offer a flexible seal.  Due to their complete stability, kammprofile gaskets can perform efficiently at differing levels of stress seat testing.  Meaning that no matter the different bolt loads, flanges, or installation errors, kammprofile gaskets provide excellent results time and time again.  This low seating stress also helps to reduce any concerns when it comes to gasket removal. 
  3. Damage to flanges is minimal.  This is because the serrated metal core is covered by a soft material such as PTFE, graphite, aluminium, or silver.  Offering complete flexibility as well as being tightly compacted between surfaces, causing minimal damage. 
  4. Kammprofile gaskets offer value for money mainly because they are reusable! Manufacturers of kammprofile gaskets regularly refurbish used gaskets for industrial users, helping to add to your savings over the years and increase the lifespan of your gaskets overall. 
  5. They’re resistant to hazardous chemicals.  Kammprofile gaskets are ideal for resisting hazardous chemicals, as they offer a sealing function that works with all machine parts that deal with such substances.  For you, this means the chance of leakages is reduced, and safety on site can be ensured. 
  6. Kammprofilegaskets last longer.  Not only can these types of gaskets be reused, but because of the sturdiness of the kammprofile gasket and the materials in which they are manufactured, they also last longer too.  Reducing your maintenance costs while continuing to add value. 

Today, Kammprofile gaskets are available as grooved, metallic and corrugated metallic gaskets, and they can also be custom designed depending on their desired use.  

For those operating within chemical industries, or for large vessels, oil rigs and refineries, kammprofile gaskets can also handle bolt stress relaxation and creep, can provide joint tightness even under the most extreme pressures, they have outstanding compression and recovery ability, and no matter the differing temperatures they are exposed to they offer a perfect level of consistency throughout. 

Within these specific operating environments, it’s also important to use gaskets that can help to counteract surface defects — offering a higher level of sealability in some instances than a spiral wound gasket can. 

Kammprofile gaskets aren’t the cheapest option in the gasket market, but they do offer considerable value for money.  Plus, with their reported low failure rate and worldwide use across so many different applications, kammprofile gaskets can provide you with the perfect sealant to meet a wide range of specifications.
