GOODBYE SPIRAL-WOUND GASKETS!
Compared to Spiral-Wound Gaskets, Black-Max seals better and has much better recovery properties. It also weighs less than half of that of spiral gaskets, so they’re easier to handle and you’ll save on freight charges.
While Spiral Gaskets require near perfect conditions, Black-Max gaskets seal on rough, pitted surfaces and under less compressive load.
STRONG, RELIABLE, LONG LASTING
LOOKING FOR A GASKET THAT STANDS UP TO EXTREME PRESSURE? THAT OFFERS LEAK FREE PERFORMANCE EVEN ON ROUGH PITTED SURFACES?
Then you need the new Black-Max gasket made from foil-reinforced exfoliated graphite. These 1⁄4” thick gaskets are made from multiple layers of exfoliated graphite foil and 316 stainless steel foil ensuring gasket stability. You can use them in virtually any situation, in environments that run from a cryogenic -400°F to 1200°F steam temperature. Now you can standardize your gasket selection; they’re available in popular shapes: Oval, Obround, Rectangular, Round and Square.
No leakage under pressure. Even the slightest leakage will increase maintenance requirements and reduce your product’s life. Field tests by major end users confirm that Black- Max gaskets seal with zero leakage in steam and in cold water hydro tests. Black-Max withstands working steam temperatures up to 1200°F, Rubber gaskets can’t withstand that kind of pressure and heat.
Easy removal. Removal is easy and requires no scraping, chiselling or grinding - so you’ll experience lower maintenance costs and less downtime.
Easily Marked Sizes. Each gasket’s size is permanently marked, so you’ll know immediately that you have the one you need.
Maximum Sealing on Rough Surfaces. Rough and pitted surfaces on old or poorly maintained flanges pose no problem for Black-Max gaskets: the material is resilient enough to conform perfectly to surface topography and maintain the tightest possible seal.
Chemical Resistance. The proprietary graphite used to manufacture Black- Max is chemically inert (pH 0-14) and resistant to chemicals used in treating boiler water.
Extended Shelf Life. Black-Max gaskets wont dry out or lose their strength while sitting on the shelf.
Black Max gaskets are able to withstand a pressure of up to 2000psig (137 bar)
