Camprofile Gaskets

Camprofile gaskets consist of a metal core (generally Stainless Steel) with concentric grooves on either side with sealing materials. The sealing layers (depending on the service duty) can be Graphite, PTFE (Teflon), CAF or Metal (e.g Aluminium or Silver). Camprofile's can be used without sealing layers to provide an excellent seal but there is a risk of flange surface damage.

The very wide seating stress range (minimum to maximum stress) of the camprofile gasket makes it

  • Highly suitable for varying temperatures and pressures.
  • Less senstive to assembly faults (inaccurate bolt tensioning).
  • Suitable for light and heavily constructed flanges.
  • Dependent on layer material camprofile gaskets are resistant to temperatures up to 1000 0C.
  • Resistant to media pressures up to 250 bar.

Loose or Integral rings

Thermal-shock conditions may damage camprofiles with integral centring rings (thermal tension may cause cracks in the core).
