Leader Gasket Technologies is one of the industry’s leading supplier for the most critical sealing applications in the gas, oil, petrochemical and offshore industries - that involve high pressures and elevating temperatures. In these industries, ring joint gaskets are often used to concentrate the bolt load over a small area to produce high seating stress.
Selection of ring joint gaskets
When selecting ring joint gasket material, you should pick a gasket that is softer than the mating flanges, as high seating stress causes `plastic-flow` of the ring type joint in the flange face creating the seal.
At Leader Gasket Technologies we have heavily invested to create a stock of the more commonly used sizes of ring (type) joint gaskets in both soft iron and 316 stainless steel.
