Basic knowledge of ring joint gaskets

  • Ring Joint Gaskets are heavy duty high pressure gaskets mainly used in offshore and onshore petrochemical industries, oilfield drilling and completion equipment, valves and piping assemblies, etc. With some high integrity pressure vessel fittings.

    Ring joint gaskets are used where high sealing performance is required under high temperature and high pressure. It is known that the gasket compression force, which is closely related to leakage, is reduced by the action of internal pressure.

    It can withstand pressures up to 1500 bar and temperatures up to 1000 degrees Celsius. In addition, it is chemically resistant. The gasket is installed in the groove. Then bolt the two faces together. When the ring joint is compressed,it forms a strong seal.
