The TEADIT ELECTRON™ gasket kit was developed to meet dielectric/cathodic protection needs and specifications in industries ranging from the most basic to the most demanding processes, guaranteeing a high level of sealability in flanges. The products offered in this market for such applications are often manufactured from phenolic resins, epoxy, rubber, etc.- materials that may present limitations when considering the growing mechanical and chemical performance demands of this industry. The ELECTRON™ gasket is more reliable and functional than these gaskets, in typical flanges, allowing for a higher degree of compression. The TEADIT ELECTRON™ Electrical Isolation Gaskets are included in our insulating kits. These kits are composed of a sealing gasket, insulating washers, metal washers, and insulating sleeves (as shown in the picture). These kits are used to prevent the electrochemical corrosion frequently observed in metal pipelines using flanges with different materials or underground pipes. They are typically used in refineries, oil pipelines, gas pipelines, chemical plants, and particularly in offshore units such as oil platforms.
Filter leakage, due to surface irregularities between a lid and a fixed flange, caused contamination in a plant. This increased the risk for chemical burn injuries and corrosion of nearby equipment. The fragility of PVC flanges limited the ability to solve the problem by simply increasing the bo ...
