Types of gaskets and sealants
Insulation of industrial parts has become one of the main problems of the industry these days.
Gaskets can be produced in different thicknesses and dimensions, suitable for the amount of pressure and heat in the environment for insulation.
Its main applications in the field of industry are petrochemical, automotive, electronics and agriculture.
In this section we want to review some of the identical features of the washers below:
Acceptable mechanical strength
Acceptable operation in various weather conditions and very high heat tolerance
Tolerating and controlling high pressures
Reduce contact of parts with each other
The main use of gaskets is to seal equipment, which prevents materials from entering and leaving the parts.
The washers are in three different types of spiral, o-ring and seal bowl, each of which we want to explain below.
Spiral is made in three different types without rim, inner rim and outer rim.
This product has elastic properties and good flexibility, and in addition to these advantages, it works well in alkaline and acidic environments; Due to these special advantages, it is widely used in various fields, including refineries, power plants and aerospace.
O-ring washers are used to insulate shafts at low speeds and static seals. These washers are usually made of rubber and have high mechanical strength.
O-rings are made in three different types, which are:
Anti-acid o-ring: Made of EPDM rubber that is resistant to alkalis and acids; This o-ring can withstand temperatures up to 200 degrees Celsius.
Silicone o-ring: This product has a heat tolerance of up to 300 degrees Celsius and in addition has a high mechanical strength and due to the presence of silicone in it; Can be used in laboratory, health and food industries.
Anti-oil o-ring: This o-ring is very resistant to oil, oil, water and grease.
O-Whitney: This product has mechanical, chemical and thermal resistance, and the heat that this product can withstand is temperatures up to 450 degrees Celsius.
It is made of a combination of plastic and metal and has a good resistance to impact, which prevents the entry and exit of liquids and materials.
Felt bowls are produced in five types, anti-oil, silicone, thermal, rubber and anti-acid.
In general, gaskets and sealants are used to insulate, seal and seal products.
