Gaskets

Pyro-Tex Woven Gasket Sheet
A resilient, compressed sheet... that works!​
Ready to be cut for use in severe conditions.​

Services​
Up to 310bar​
Up to 1000°C*​
High equipment wear (scratches/pores)​

Reinforced with Flat Metal​

Individual graphite foil weaving yarn is reinforced with stainless steal strips; Yarns are then woven; Woven compressed gasket sheet is then rolled into cardboard tubes for shipment.​
Available in sizes as large as 2000 x 4000 sheets​

Advantages​

  • ​Surface nodules promote flexibility and flow into oxidized surfaces & scratches, pores and steam cuts.​
  • Flat metallic leaf springs, jacketed with graphite foil, make this sheet the most resilient gasket you will need.​
  • It takes physical abuse like no other graphite foil, handling and feeling like tough leather.​
  • Pyro-Tex gasket sheet eliminates the need for a compressing ring to prevent crushing.​
  • Layering of sheets allows for greater thicknesses.​
  • Eliminates shipping pallets: Gasket Sheets individually packaged in 75 mm cardboard tubes for easy storage.​
  • Single sheet thickness: nominal 2 mm.​

Pyro-Tex Joint Sealants​

Slade's self-forming gasket, the Pyro-Tex Joint Sealant, is made from patented graphite-foil encapsulated carbon-fiber reinforced yarns (also available with stainless-steel foil yarns). This self-forming gasket when in place is compressed to fit snugly. ​

  • Change gasket without pulling tube bundles​
  • Adhesive bonds in place during installation​
  • Self forms into endless gasket​
  • Made to virtually any thickness or width​
  • Never hardens or dries out​
  • Metallic reinforcement impedes extrusion​
  • Readjustable, often re-usable​
  • Individual strands reinforced with:​
    carbon fiber, 304 SS, or Inconel foil​
  • Packaged on plastic spools​
  • Inventory just one or two sizes​
  • Eliminates the need to remove heat exchanger tubes from the shell​

Performs better than:

  • Double jacketed metal gaskets
  • Spiral wound gaskets
  • Corrugated metal gaskets​

And also:

  • More reliable than PTFE joint sealants​
  • Eliminates large inventories​
  • Easier to Handle​
  • Stops damage from rough handling​
  • Doesn’t kink out of shape​
  • Adjusts to warped flanges​
  • Fills pits and scratches up to 3 mm deep​
