Seal damaged flanges with this compressible gasket

The Flange Rescue Gasket (FRG; photo) can be applied to seal damaged flanges and avoid the need for replacing or machining the flange. The FRG can reduce the time-consuming and costly process of flange maintenance, especially in corrosive offshore environments. The FRG is fabricated from highly compressible Sigma PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) to ensure that the FRG conforms to the damaged flange surface to seal and prevent further deterioration. The bright-colored, easily identifiable FRG has a fluoropolymer-coated body that is corrosion-resistant. The unit features integral bolt holes for ensuring correct location and making installation easy, the company says. — Flexitallic Ltd., West Yorkshire, U.K.
