The flange rescue gasket

09 December 2009

Set to revolutionise offshore asset maintenance, Flexitallic has launched, what is believed to be, the first-ever solution to sealing damaged flanges without the need for replacement or machining – the Flange Rescue Gasket (FRG).

The FRG was developed in response to customer demand for a sealing solution to reduce the lengthy and costly process of flange maintenance in corrosive offshore environments. Flexitallic went further by creating the FRG which actually negates the requirement for flange replacement or machining, potentially reducing every flange inspection by 24 hours.

Highly compressible Sigma ensures the FRG conforms to damaged flange surfaces to seal and prevent further deterioration. Restructured Sigma PTFE bonded to the high integrity serrated metal ring provides a leak-free seal and blow out resistance. The bright, easily identifiable FRG has a PTFE coated body which is corrosion resistant and features integral bolt holes for ease of installation and ensures correct location. Superior mechanical integrity allows the use of the full range of torque reducing the risk of operator error to meet stringent HSE standards.
