New large-diameter fire-safe gasket delivered

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The Flexitallic Group

This company has delivered its largest ever Flexpro gasket (photo) to be used in the development of a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant in the U.S. The gasket, with a diameter in excess of 5 m, is faced with Thermiculite, a material possessing heat and chemical resistance and is rated to withstand temperatures up to 1,000°C. The versatile, fire-safe gasket material also eradicates graphite oxidation, which limits seal life, and is highly effective in maintaining joint integrity in demanding environments. Flexpro gaskets are available in several styles and can be manufactured to recognize international standards or to suit customized connections. — The Flexitallic Group, Houston
