PSI GasketSeal® Non-Isolating Sealing Gasket

PSI GasketSeal® Non-Isolating Sealing Gasket

GasketSeal Non-Isolating Gasket Seal

Description

GasketSeal® sealing gaskets are considered to be one of the most effective methods for sealing mating surfaces of all types. The gasket consists of two molded half “O” rings (with precise crown to void ratio) mounted in grooves on opposite sides of a retainer.

While maintaining all the advantages of a full “O” ring seal, the half “O” rings eliminate the need for sealing grooves in the mating surfaces which also eliminates positioning and alignment concerns. GasketSeal® gaskets are available in a wide variety of retainer and sealing element combinations for matching gaskets to service and environmental conditions.

How The Seal Functions

Before Tightening
The flange faces come into contact with the sealing elements, which extend slightly above the surface of the retainer. As the flange is tightened the sealing elements are compressed and move sideways into the inclined portion of the groove, developing a high unit pressure against the flange faces.
Linebacker Gasket Seal and Isolator
After Tightening
The flange faces have come into firm contact with the retainer, thus encapsulating the sealing elements within grooves. At the same time, the unique LineBacker® seal configuration provides elastic memory for elastomers not normally associated with this characteristic – resulting in a simple flat gasket with extremely high loading and self energizing characteristics without adverse cold flow problems.
Linebacker Gasket Seal and Isolator
Linebacker Gasket Type E Linebacker Gasket Type F
Type E Gasket

The gasket retainer extends out to the O.D. of the flange. Holes are cut in a type “E” gasket at the bolt circle to accommodate threaded studs or bolts.
Type F Gasket

The gasket retainer extends out to the I.D. of the bolt circle.

Typical Specifications

For General Piping Systems

Materials for sealing gaskets on pipes containing water, aqueous fluids or natural gas (up to 221°F, 105°C) shall consist of the following components:

Isolating and Sealing Gasket
One full faced isolating and sealing gasket, GasketSeal® Type “E”, 1/8″ thick, phenolic retainer containing a precision tapered groove to accommodate the controlled compression of a nitrile sealing element.

The phenolic retainer shall have a 500 volts/mil dielectric strength and a minimum 25,000 psi compressive strength. The full faced flange gasket shall be 1/8″ less in I.D. than the I.D. of the flange in which it is installed.

Quality
Gaskets shall be manufactured at a facility that has a registered ISO 9001:2000 Quality Management System. Submittals shall include copy of valid registration.

Availability
Gaskets shall be manufactured by Pipeline Seal and Insulator, Inc., Houston, Texas, U.S.A.,

Non-Isolating Sealing Gaskets

Three of PSI’s premier sealing gaskets are available with non-isolating (metallic) retainers. In addition to the LineBacker? and GasketSeal? gaskets, the FlangeMate? sealing gasket features a unique configuration that allows the use of even soft metallic materials (grafoil) to be used as seal elements. The hoop strength of metallic retainers virtually insures against the possibility of a gasket blow-out under any and all conditions.
