Gaskets & Sheet Jointings
James Walker manufactures and supplies complete ranges of metallic and semi-metallic joints, gaskets and sheet jointings to suit every industrial application.
In addition, we produce precision-cut flat gaskets to any shape, size and quantity from any sheet material, including our own extensive ranges of jointings. A vast stock of flange gaskets is held ready for immediate despatch, and we can economically cut non-standard profiles of any complexity within minutes.
A range of highly proven non-asbestos sheet jointings that covers flange gasket duties with most fluid media from ASME Class 150 to Class 600 ratings, plus some special applications.
Supagraf® expanded graphite jointings combine excellent chemical resistance with an exceptionally wide temperature range to provide outstanding sealing over extended periods.
• Temperatures from cryogenic to above +400°C in oxiding environments.
• Maximum temperature of +2500°C in inert conditions under certain circumstances.
• Excellent resistance to stress relaxation at elevated temperatures.
The vital role of the flange gasket is too often overlooked. Our on-site and workshop-based services are based on the vast technical expertise of James Walker companies in the selection, manufacture and supply of the optimum gasket products and flange sealing capabilities. Moreover, our protection devices are well-proven products that help extend the operational life and long-term sealing efficiency of bolted flange joints.
We offer a variety of gasket types or materials for specific applications – plus our compact hand tool for cutting circular flange gaskets from compressed fibre jointings, rubber and cork-elastomer sheets. Also, our RotaBolt® tension control fasteners are widely used on high integrity flange jointed systems.
James Walker’s Fluolion® PTFE, Garlock’s Gylon® modified-PTFE, GORE® ePTFE, and Teadit® expanded-PTFE gasket products provide outstanding chemical resistance for duties where hygiene and non – contamination are essential.
They offer many unique features:
• Outstanding chemical resistance.
• Non-corrosive, non-wetting, non-contaminating and odourless.
• Can work efficiently at temperatures from cryogenic up to +260°C.
• Excellent electrical and thermal insulation in virgin PTFE form.
API-licensed and ASME ranges of solid metal ring joints, precision manufactured in the UK by James Walker Moorflex for high pressure oilfield applications and process industry duties.
Available to API 6A (oilfield use) and ASME B16.20 (general use) standards to fit ASME, BS and DIN flanges.
James Walker Metaflex® gaskets will seal flanges where temperature, pressure, vibration and flow rates are beyond the capability of conventional jointing materials.
They are used worldwide for pipelines and pressure vessels on steam, petrochemical, nuclear, marine and hydraulic plant, as well as on heat exchangers.
We provide cost efficient ranges of off-the-shelf and standard products that help industry to improve the integrity of flange joints – and protect the critical components of these joints from corrosion, humidity and environmental pollutants.
By eliminating such problems at source, our customers can improve plant efficiency and safety whilst, at the same time, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
