Case Study: GYLON EPIX® 3501 Petrochemical Plant

The customer had been using a silica filled PTFE, 2mm thick sheet gasket material. However, old and uneven flanges created leakage issues that the plant wanted to eliminate. Flange sizes ranged from 25mm to 500mm (1"" to 20""). The customer was open to trying new gasket technology to get rid of leaks in old and uneven flange connections.
