Boiler gaskets are used throughout a boiler as a sealing material. They can be found on both the waterside and the fireside of the heat exchanger. Ideal gaskets share some common traits:
Seal upon installation
Seat at low compressive stress
Stabilize immediately (without any relaxation over time)
Resist against creep and hot/cold flow
Low compression set
Seal fugitive emissions (those not visible)
Withstand high pressurization
Constructed of high temperature materials
Chemically resistant to feed-water treatments.
There are two types of gaskets used in boilers, which can be labeled soft and hard.
Soft Gaskets are -
Constructed of low temperature materials
Extremely high compression set
Not impervious to all feed-water chemicals
Can extrude during installation or high pressure service
Susceptible to shearing if mis-aligned
Creeps over time
Woven designs are not impermeable
Not fire safe
Hard Gaskets are -
Very difficult to obtain initial seat with low loading
Very little recovery due to design
Low flexibility to conform to shell radii
Potential to spring during handling
High relaxation/ Low stability due to design
Geometry allow relaxation potential
Topog-e boiler gaskets are just one of the many gasket designs
available through P. C. McKenzie Company. These gaskets have been in service since they were first released over 30 years ago. They are peroxide cured EPDM molded gaskets and are rated to 380 degree F and 180 psi steam. They carry a durrometer rating of 80-85 so shearing and over-tightening maybe a concern.
Spiral Wound - for boiler cap and manhole cover assemblies. Gaskets for boiler handhole, tubecap and manhole covers incorporating the unique Flexitallic spiral wound profile and specially manufactured with Flexicarb filler, are ideal for corrosive, high pressure or temperature duties.
