Agis Offers Expanded Line of High Temperature Pipe and Pipe Flange Gaskets

Suburban Philadelphia manufacturer/distributor adds wide range of pipe/pipe flange gaskets to its line of high temperature industrial sealing products.

Ambler, PA, February 25, 2015 --( An expanded line of high temperature pipe and pipe flange gaskets, custom manufactured from compressed fiber, PTFE, graphite and other heat-resistant materials, is offered for high-temperature sealing applications by AGIS, LLC, suburban Philadelphia manufacturer/distributor of high temperature industrial sealing products.

AGIS pipe gaskets are employed by a wide variety of industries, including chemical processing, petroleum, waste/water treatment, steel & mining, food processing, boiler, steam, plant maintenance, power generation, metals/heat treating, transportation and marine, pulp & paper manufacturing, to name a few.

The company’s pipe gasket line includes:
-AGIS compressed synthetic fiber pipe flange gaskets, which feature nitrile rubber-bonded synthetic fibers of high chemical stability, heat resistance and superior creep resistance at high temperatures. Other properties include performance in service conditions to 750° F and 1450 PSI (300 PSI saturated steam pressure).
-Teflon® envelope pipe flange gaskets, manufactured with a slit-type Teflon envelope protective covering, which imparts the mechanical strength, resilience and bolt load retention of compressed sheet together with the chemical resistance of PFTE (Teflon). Maximum service temperature: 550° F. Because Teflon is impervious to virtually all corrosives and exhibits a low coefficient of friction,
-McDonnell & Miller pipe gaskets, manufactured from AGIS' 1/32" thick compressed sheet. The sheet itself is nitrile rubber-bonded, manufactured with synthetic fibers of high chemical stability and heat resistance, exhibits superior creep resistance at high temperatures, has a 750°F temperature limit, 1450 psi, 300 psi saturated steam pressure and a tensile strength of 2200 psi
-Metal spiral-wound pipe gaskets, manufactured with layers of preformed 304SS metal strip (for mechanical resistance) and intermittent layers of soft filler material (for resiliency). Fillerrs available include Grafoil® flexible graphite, Teflon® (PTFE) and Monel® / Rated to 999 PSI (1999 PSI available) and temps to 1000° AGIS spiral-wound gaskets exhibit good recovery and good tolerance for flange-surface finish irregularities. They have been typically used for high pressure applications, such as boilers, where pressures exceed non-metallic gasket capabilities; heat exchangers with center webs
