A Non-Graphite Alternative For Steam Sealing

01 March 2004

After asbestos was banned for health and safety reasons, steam systems
were generally sealed using graphite gaskets - a material with inherent
brittleness, adhesion and handling problems. To overcome these
maintenance limitations, Garlock has developed an inorganic fibre-based
gasket material, which it has dubbed ST-706. The material tolerates high
temperatures (independent testing by BHR Group proved its endurance by
thermal cycling up to 400oC for 90 days), and it can be easily cut from
sheet on site. It is also less damaging to dies used to manufacture
quantities of machine-cut gaskets.
