Flat Gasket    |      2019.08.13    |     Hit:4   

A flat gasket is a sealing device made in the form of a torus (round top view), with a square shaped cross-section (side view).

The primary reason for using a flat gasket in a sealing application is that they perform the sealing function in a superior manner and at a cost lower than any other comparable sealing device. For existing applications, there is no need to change the design or procedures. Flat gaskets fit in O-ring grooves and are interchangeable size for size.

Flat gasket are available in a variety of rubber and plastic materials such as Buna, Viton, EPDM, Teflon, etc. In most static applications, a flat gasket will serve as a direct replacement for an O-ring and generally will perform a high pressure sealing function as well as or better than an O-ring.
