Advantages of a Kammprofile Gasket

Kammprofile gaskets are designed to provide excellent sealing in extreme conditions. They are used in a wide variety of applications, including heat exchangers and industrial power plants. The solid metal core of the gasket is serrated on each side to improve sealing performance. This design also minimizes lateral flow.Other advantages of Kammprofile gaskets include high chemical resistance and extreme temperature resistance. These characteristics are especially important in applications with hazardous chemicals.

In addition to the core, a soft facing layer is bonded on both sides. Depending on the type of Kammprofile gasket, the facing layer is made of graphite, PTFE, mica, or other non-asbestos materials.Kammprofile gaskets are also available in a variety of shapes. They can be made in male or female configurations, with or without rings. Generally, they use a polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) filler. However, they can also be manufactured with different core materials.The grooved design of the gasket creates a leak tight seal at low bolt loads. However, the grooves tend to create a stronger central specific pressure than flat profiles. Additionally, the concave profile of a Kammprofile gasket offers improved sealing.
A Kammprofile gasket's ability to be manufactured in a range of materials and sizes makes it an ideal choice for many applications. It is also easy to handle even when the diameter is large.Kammprofile gaskets are commonly specified in situations where a tight seal is needed, particularly in fugitive emissions services. They are also preferred for thermal cycling, where the gasket must be able to maintain a tight seal for long periods of time.
