Best in Class Extreme Grade Line of Gaskets Maximize Safety and Environmental Compliance
Seals 20% more effectively, new anti-stick coating cuts maintenance costs and downtime
Garlock Sealing Technologies, a leader in fluid sealing technology for more than 100 years, announces its Extreme Grade line of gaskets for critical service applications. Rated Best in Class for sealability, load retention, adhesion and fire safety, the Extreme Grade line is designed to maximize safety and environmental compliance.
The new Extreme Grade line seals 20% more effectively than the original design, to help plants meet emissions standards and increase efficiency. Featuring a new anti-stick coating that prevents the gasket from sticking to flanges, the gaskets cut maintenance costs, reduce flange damage and dramatically cut downtime. Further, the new material expedites gasket removal and installation and reduces outage cycles. In addition, this material cuts more easily and leaves little residue on the cutting surface, making for a cleaner workspace and faster cleanup.
Well-suited for water, steam, aliphatic hydrocarbons, oils and gasoline, and able to withstand high pressures and temperatures ranging from -40°F to +650°F, the Extreme Grade line of gaskets is an ideal solution for applications including: bonnet gaskets, split case pump gaskets, manways and handholes, and gear box gaskets.
The Extreme Grade line of gaskets can be purchased through an authorized Garlock distributor or visit www.extremegradegaskets.com and go to "Representative Locator" to contact a local Garlock representative. Pricing is available on request.
