Flexitallic, the global specialist manufacturer and supplier of sealing products and services, has delivered its largest ever Flexpro™ Kammprofile gasket, which will be utilised on a plant in Egypt
The 4.7metre diameter gasket, which is faced with graphite, will be installed on an Oxy-Reactor on a plant manufacturing Propylene and Polypropylene. It was ordered through Flexitallic distributor, European Trading Co (Eurotrade) in Egypt.
Flexitallic’s Flexpro™ Kammprofile, which is suitable from vacuum to extremely high-pressure applications, delivers the compressibility of a sheet gasket for low sealing stress together with the bolt tightness of a spiral wound gasket and the handling ease of a solid metal gasket and its resistance to buckling.
Manufactured at Flexitallic’s production facility in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, the unique graphite gasket exhibits effective recovery characteristics, maintaining joint tightness under pressure and temperature fluctuations.
The Flexpro™ gasket is also effective against temperature differential across the flange face, flange rotation, bolt stress relaxation and creep.
Phil Kelshaw, Sales Director for the Eastern Hemisphere for Flexitallic, said: “The design and production methods we have developed have enabled Flexitallic to meet the bespoke requirements of industry. The challenge to deliver effective, safe and efficient operations has to be supported by innovative and skilled suppliers, such as Flexitallic, which can deliver solutions whatever the individual specifications of the project.
“This Flexpro™ Kammprofile gasket is another example of Flexitallic’s investment in research and product development to ensure that its technology can be applied effectively across multiple industry sectors in a broad range of sizes without reducing any of its capabilities.”
