PSI GasketSeal® Sealing and Isolating Gasket

Description

PSI GasketSeal® Sealing and Isolating Gasket

Linebacker Gasket Seal and Isolator

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 crown of the sealing elements. As the flange is tightened the crowns are compressed into the molded-in voids in the sealing elements, resulting in a seal that will maintain positive, dynamic contact against the flange faces under all conditions.

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 and guarding them from exposure to external environments or internal media. At the same time, the elastic memory characteristics of the confined sealing elements results in zero “”m”” and “”y”” factors, making it possible to effect and maintain a positive seal at the lowest possible compressive load.

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.
