Ring type joints are precision machined metallic gaskets designed to be used in conjunction with precision machined flanges used in high pressure applications in refineries, power plants, petrochemical industry, oil drilling, pipelines, valves and pressure vessels. All our Ring Type
Joints are manufactured according to ASMEB16.20 and API 6A.
The gasket material is selected on a number of factors: chemical compatibility with the media and hardness of the flange. The gasket material is preferred to be roughly 30 Brinell less than the flange material to ensure sufficient deformation of the gasket without damaging the flange facing.
