Metal Gaskets with grooved faces have proved to be very effective for sealing flanged connections, and are particularly suited to applications,pressures and fluctiating conditions are encountered. Typical applications are gaskets for heat exchangers, vessels and reactors, and various flnaged connections. Commonely known as Kammprofile gaskets, the grooves are machines in accordance with the profile specified in DIN 2697 and are available in a range of styles and materials.
Non-metalic covering layers ensure that flanges are not damaged, even at high loadings, and provide excellent sealing properties when supported by the grooved metallic gasket. Kammprofile gaskets are use in heat exchangers may be fitted with grooved partition bars.
