Ring Joint Gasket (Oval /Octagonal)
Ring Joint Gasket can endure high pressure or alternation pressure (1500 bar)
With correct material, it can be used in the situation with high temperature (1000oC) and corrosively.
The key of reliable operation is accurate installation;
The load and unload of gaskets rely on the solid structure of gaskets;
To control the hardness of gaskets accurately guarantee under the circumstance of excellent sealing performance, gaskets don't damage the flange. They can be used in the areas such as marine work, chemical engineering and petrochemical industry.
Oval/Octagonal Ring Joint Gasket.
Type R, Oval shape
Standard oval shape Ring Joint Gaskets apply to standard groove flange.
Type R, Octagonal shape
Standard octagonal shape Ring Joint Gaskets apply to standard groove flange
The pressure can up to approximately 700bar. To using this kind of gaskets firstly the outer sealing surface approach to flange, the higher system pressure generates higher bottom stress. The type RX can interchangeable with standard type R.
The pressure can up to approximately 1500bar. BX gaskets are self energized by the internal system pressure which increases the gasket seating stress on the flange contact surface. This Ring Joint is only suited for API-type BX flanges and grooves.
