KLINGER®top-graph 2000

Characteristic & main applications

The flexible graphite sealing material with a high degree of inherent stability.

It has high load bearing capacity combined with high seal ability.

It is ideally suited for use with steam and other critical applications.

Description

Material

Based on graphite and synthetic fibres. Manufactured using a process which provides the graphite gaskets with totally new, previously unachievable properties.

pT diagram

The Klinger pT diagram provides guidelines for determining the suitability of a particular gasket material for a specific application based on the operating temperature and pressure only. Always refer to the chemical resistance of the gasket to the fluid.

1. In area one, the gasket material is normally suitable subject to chemical compatibility.
2. In area two, the gasket materials may be suitable but a technical evaluation is recommended.
3. In area three, do not install the gasket without a technical evaluation.

Function and durability

The performance and life of KLINGER gaskets depend in large measure on proper storage and fitting, factors beyond the manufacture’s control. We can, however, vouch for the excellent quality of our products. With this in mind, please also observe our installation instructions
