Metal Jacketed gaskets are the most basic type ofsemi-metallic gaskets combining the high pressure suitabilityand
blow out resistance of metallic materials with the improved compressibility of soft materials. Metal jacketed gaskets
offer an economical seal where sealing faces are narrow and can be produced in a variety of shapes,making them a
good option for heat exchanger jointing.
Easy to handle andinstall
Suitable for high temperatures
Suitable for narrow flanges
Metal Jacketed and corrugated gaskets can be
manufactured to suit a range of chemical environments
by the selection of a suitable alloy jacket or core.
The following materials are available :
1. Double Jacketed
Constructed of soft filler encapsulated by a metal
Economical, basic with added strength from metallic jacket
Metal jacket provides increased gasketstability and blow-outresistance
Chemical resistance to a wide range of media can be accommodatedby selection of a suitable metal
2. Single Jacketed
Constructed of soft filler completely enclosed in asingle jacket for use in applications where the widthdoes not
permit the use of a double jacketed gasket.
