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...

O Ring Colour Identification

O rings come in various colours, and it's important to understand what these colours indicate as the o rings you choose will affect your overall process application.  Ultimately, different o ring colours are used to help differentiate between different materials. ...

Spiral Wound Gasket Compressibility and Pressure Ratings

In order to form a reliable seal, spiral wound gaskets do require a certain degree of pressure.   The applied pressure allows the gasket to be compressed tightly between the mating surfaces preventing any leaks from occurring.  Factors such as operating temperature...

Elastomeric Compounds

What is elastomer?  Elastomeric compounds are rubber seals produced using natural rubbers or manufactured by the chemicals industry.  Elastomeric sealing compounds consist of between 50-60% rubber; the remainder of the compound consists of fillers,...

Mica Gaskets and Sheeting Materials

Mica is a very high temperature (1000⁰C) gasket sheeting material able to withstand such temperatures even in the presence of Oxygen. It can be produced in tape, strip and roll form, suitable for using in the manufacture of Spiral Wound and Kammprofile gaskets and also in braided form for applications requiring a gland compression packing. As a sheeting product there are predominantly three main variants, one as a plain Mica product, one with a flat stainless steel core for extra rigidity and strength, and one having a stainless steel tanged reinforcement for even greater stability and strength, especially when being used on narrow width flanges. These products can be used in a wide range of applications including Diesel engines and exhaust manifolds, turbines and turbochargers, oil pan and heat shield.

This group of materials exhibit low weight loss at high temperatures and provide high integrity seals having been specially developed to be used in the most demanding sealing applications with a temperature range from cryogenic to +1000⁰C using mica, a mineral fibre with exceptional physical and chemical resistance properties. Thanks to their chemical formulation this group of materials are oxidation free and can be used in critical applications where other materials suffer from rapid thermal degradation which then they fail to ensure the required resistance, durability and reliability. 

  • Temperature range from cryogenic to +1000⁰C 
  • API 607 Fire Safe Test 
  • Excellent chemical resistance 
  • For use in corrosive environments 
  • Free from oxidation 
  • Can be used in critical applications where other materials may fail
