PSI LineBacker® Non-Isolating Sealing Gasket

Description

PSI LineBacker® Non-Isolating Sealing Gasket

Linebacker Gasket Seal

Description

LineBacker® sealing gaskets utilize a rectangular sealing element, referred to as a “quad” ring, in combination with a unique groove design to effectively sealflanges of all types. With the unique “quad” ring design, elastic memory is provided for elastomers not normally associated with this characteristic. Materials such as AFLAS, TFE (Teflon) and KALREZ may therefore be used as sealing elements which dramatically increases the options available for matching gasket conditions. This greater variety of materials also provides excellent temperature and chemical range compatibility. LineBacker® sealing gaskets are self energizing with theoretical near zero “m” and “y” factors resulting in effecting a positive seal without excessive bolt loads required with flat gaskets.

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.

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 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:

Non-Isolating Sealing Gasket
One full faced sealing gasket, LineBacker® Type “E”, 1/8″ thick, phenolic retainer containing a precision tapered groove to accommodate the controlled compression of a nitrile quad-ring sealing element. Sealing element placement shall accommodate either flat, raised or RTJ face flanges. The quad-ring seal shall be pressure energized. 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.,
