Flange insulation kits are the most widely used form of controlling losses due to corrosion. They can be used to control stray electric currents in piping at oil, gas, water, refinery and chemical plants to increase the effectiveness of Cathodic protection systems and confine or eliminate electrolytic corrosion. Each set is clearly tagged with the flange size, pressure rating, type of insulating sleeve and whether it is a single washer of double washer set
Type of Gaskets
Type e is a full-faced gasket with the same outside diameter as the flange and precision cut bolt holes. This design facilitates proper alignment of the gasket during installation. Type E gaskets are available in plain face or Neoprene face phenolic as well as a variety of high temperature materials.
Type D gaskets are specifically designed to fit into the ring groove of ring type joint flanges. They are manufactured of a medium weave, fabric-rein forced phenolic material and are sized to ANSI specifications available in basic oval as well as octagonal shape. Also available are BX gaskets with pressure rating to 15,000 psi.
Type F gaskets are made to fit the raised face portion of the flange only. As there are no bolt holes in the F gasket, the outside diameter of the gasket falls within the inside diameter of the bolt hole circle. Available in the same materials as the type E gasket.
Type G is available in both full faced (FF) and inside bolt circle versions (RF) and incorporates an elastomeric sealing ring in the gasket faces. Appropriate selection of insulating and sealing materials provides a versatile set with higher chemical and temperature resistance.
