THERMOSEAL/KLINGER - TOP-CHEM 2000

Silicon Carbide Filled PTFE offers universal application capability as it has excellent chemical resistance to acidic and alkaline attack, as well as provides superior mechanical properties at high temperatures and surface loads.  GP&S Enterprises, LLC proudly offers Thermoseal®/KLINGERtop-chem®-2000, which is FDA compatible and is the only PTFE gasket material to hold a Fire Test Certificate (tested according to the criteria of API 6FA to ANSI Class 300 pressure rating).  Following are the specifications for the subject material: 

 

Pressure & Temperature Graph

The pressure/temperature graphs shown are the most current method of determining the suitability of a gasket material in a known environment. Use the pressure and temperature graphs to select the most suitable material for your application.

 

1.

In area one, the gasket material is suitable using common installation practices subject to chemical compatibility.

 

2.

In area two, appropriate measures are necessary for installation of the gasket to ensure maximum performance. Please call or refer to the KLINGER® expert software system for assistance.

 

3.

In area three, do not install gaskets in these applications without first referring to the KLINGER® expert software system or contacting Thermoseal Inc.'s technical support service

These graphs were developed from testing KLINGER® materials. Do not use them for competitors' materials since non-asbestos gasket materials do not have service equivalents.

Use: The limitations of use, as shown in the graphs, are for guidance only, and are based on 1/16" thick material. The limitations of use decrease significantly as gasket thickness increases. Do not use a thicker gasket material or "double gaskets" to solve a gasket problem without first consulting the manufacturer. The ability of a gasket material to make and maintain a seal depends not only on the quality of the gasket material, but also on medium being sealed, the flange design, the amount of pressure applied to the gasket by the bolts and how the gasket is assembled into the flanges and tightened.
