STRESS SAVER

STRESS SAVER Gasketing

Since 1996 the Garlock family of companies has successfully sealed low load flanges with our Stress Saver® family of products. The molded raised ribs help to create a tighter seal by concentrating the compressive load, ideal for lightweight piping. The Garlock STRESS SAVER® provides the best solution for Non-metallic flanges applications where low bolt load and chemical resistance are issues. It is now available in as a molded GYLON 3504, EPDM/PTFE (Style 370), or in a high-performance fluoroelastomer configuration (XP). The design incorporates raised molded ribs, which reduce the contact area by as much as 75-85%. This rib design allows the STRESS SAVER® gaskets to seal where flat rubber and traditional PTFE gaskets will not.
