COMPRESSED CARBON AND GRAPHITE GASKETS & SHEET

Corrugated Flexible
Graphite Gasket

CFG (Corrugated Flexible Graphite) Gaskets

CFG corrugated 316 stainless steel metal core gaskets with flexible graphite sealing surface will maintain a tight seal in a wide range of initial seating stress. This makes it the universal replacement for spiral wound, double jacketed and traditional flexible graphite gaskets. It is suitable for virtually all applications found in the following industries: refining, chemical, petochemical, pulp & paper, power generation and steel mill.
  • CFG Advantages:
  • FIRE SAFE - Passed the modified API 607 Fire Test
  • Superior emissions control - DIN 3535 gas permeability / leakage < 0.01 cc/min.
  • Seals imperfect flanges
  • Seats on a variety of surface finishes
  • Easy & safe to handle
  • Blow out resistant
  • High spring back
  • No inward buckling
  • One thickness for all applications
  • Sizes:
  • Standard ANSI Class 150 and 300 ring and full face: 1/2" to 24"
  • Non-standard MSS SP-44 & API 605: 26" to 96"
  • Non-standard ovals: handhole and manway gaskets
  • All heat exchanger styles (see below)
  • Different metals available to match flange metallurgy, temperature or chemical

Note: ASTM and DIN properties based on 1/16" sheet thickness, except ASTM F38, which is based on 1/32" sheet thickness (8300 & 9400 only; all CFG gaskets are 3/32" thick). This is a general guide only and should not be the sole means of accepting or rejecting this material. The data listed here falls within the normal range of product properties, but should not be used to establish specification limits nor used alone as the basis of design.
Warning: These materials should never be recommended when both temperature and pressure are at the maximum listed. Properties and applications shown are typical. No application should be undertaken by anyone without independent study and evaluation for suitability. Never use more than one gasket in one flange joint, and never reuse a gasket. Improper use or gasket selection could cause property damage and / or serious personal injury.

Frenzelit Compressed Graphite Sheet

Frenzelit 7085 Frenzelit 7075

Style 7085-Grape

Style 7085 is Frenzelit's high pressure compressed non-asbestos gasket material and it contains 75% pure graphite. This material's higher temperature and pressure capability is due to its density. This gasket material's higher tensile strength makes it ideal for gaskets with narrow flanges or ribs. The 15% compressibility makes it the material to use in applications where assembly tolerances will not allow for 45% compressibility. This sheet is easily identified by its grape colored "easy release" non-stick coating. This is an excellent chemical sheet.

Style 7075-Cranberry

Style 7075 is Frenzelit's general service compressed non-asbestos gasket material and it contains 75% pure graphite. This unique gasket sheet has great flexibility. It is easily identified by the cranberry colored "easy release" non-stick coating. This sheet's 45% compressibility allows for better sealing for those less than perfect flanges. This material does not cold flow when compressed with excessive torque. It likes stress and performs its best when compressed to 5000 PSI and beyond. This is an excellent steam sheet.

Frenzelit manufactures the only Compressed Non-Asbestos gasket material on the market that: can withstand maximum temperatures in continuous operation, have a pH rating of 2-14 and have a non-stick coating that allows used gaskets to literally fall off the flange. The Gasket Installation Procedure must be followed to assure optimum performance in your gasket application. Our Compressed Graphite easily replaces the competitions non-asbestos compressed sheets.

About the Klinger Pressure & Temperature Graphs

The pressure/temperature charts shown for Klingersil compressed graphite materials are the most current method of determining the suitability of a gasket material in a known environment. Use the pressure and temperature graphs to select the most suitable Klingersil material for your application.

{1} In area one, the gasket material is suitable using common installation practices subject to chemical compatibility.
{2} In area two, appropriate measures are necessary for installation of the gasket to insure maximum performance. Please call or refer to the Klinger-expert software system for assistance.

{3} In area three, DO NOT INSTALL GASKETS in these applications without first referring to the Klinger-expert software system or contacting Thermoseal Inc.'s technical support service.
These graphs were developed from testing Klinger materials. Do not use them for competitor's materials since non-asbestos gasketing materials do not have service equivalents.
