Flanges, the most common trouble area, need to be sealed properly to prevent leakage and must also be cathodically insulated to prevent stray currents which cause undo corrosion and eventual breakdown of the metal. Advance Products & Systems manufactures and maintains a supply of quality products and materials which help solve most flange sealing problems, therefore preventing subsequent corrosion and saving the integrity of the pipeline.
Advance Flange Insulation Gasket Kits are manufactured according to ANSI B16.5 specifications up to 24". Above 24", please provide the specifications of your flange using our convenient worksheet. Technical assistance is available upon request.
Type D gaskets are specifically designed to fit into the ring groove of ring-type-joint flanges. They are manufactured of a medium weave, fabric-reinforced phenolic material and are sized to ANSI specifications available in basic oval as well as octagonal shape. Also available are BX gaskets with pressure ratings to 15,000 PSI.
Type E is a full-faced gasket with the same outside diameter as the flange and precision cut bolt holes. This design facilitates proper alignment of the gasket during installation and foreign material prevented from shorting the flange insulation. Type E gaskets are available in plain face or Nitrile faced phenolic, as well as a variety of high temperature materials. Standard thickness of 1/8".
Type F gaskets are made to fit the raised face portion of the flange only. As there are no bolts holes in the F gasket, the inside diameter of the bolt hole circle is slightly smaller than the outside diameter of the gasket, assuring an exact, automatic positioning of the gasket. Available in the same materials as the type E gasket. Standard thickness of 1/8".
Voltacept Trojan G-10 cathodic water meter isolating gaskets are NSF-61 approved and state of the art in near zero leakage static sealing for use in preventing galvanic reaction from the use of dissimilar metals on water piping such as steel or cast iron to brass. The elastomer sealing element is encapsulated in the electrically isolating retainer. The encapsulation of the sealing element permits only micro-exposure of the seal to potable water flow. G10 Gasket Kits are designed to keep any and all electrical currents from running back to the water meter.
