AQUA-SWELL™ Low-Load Gasketing

Low-Load Gasketing material that swells in the presence of water and oil to create a tight, leak-proof seal.

For applications where flanges might crush traditional elastomeric gaskets, or where the sealing system must be in direct contact with oil or water, few products can match the effectiveness and sealing properties of AQUA-SWELL™.

AQUA-SWELL™ gasketing combats leakage and weeping in lightweight flanges, even under low-load conditions. Designed to create an ultra-tight, leak-proof seal by swelling in the presence of oil and water, AQUA-SWELL™ creates the necessary level of compressive load for lightweight flanges.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Creates an ultra-tight seal by swelling in the presence of oil and water.

APPLICATIONS

  • Chemical processing systems and equipment
  • Compressor systems
  • Pumps
  • Ductile iron flanges
  • PVC and PE flanges
  • Valve systems
  • Hydrant connections
  • NSF-61 potable water or wastewater handling
  • In place of vegetable fiber gaskets
  • To seal flanges under stressful conditions

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

AQUA-SWELL™ achieves a tight seal through its unique material design. After the flange bolts are torqued to the proper specifications, the AQUA-SWELL™ will experience some creep relaxation, which lowers the bolt load. Once media is introduced into the system, the gasketing material expands to generate the additional load needed to seal the flange connection, ensuring leak-free operation and fluid movement.

AQUA-SWELL™ is suited for many industrial applications, including compressor systems, pumps, ductile iron flanges, PVC and PE flanges, valve systems and hydrant connections. In addition, the AQUA-SWELL™ water gasket can be used for NSF-61 potable water or wastewater handling applications, and to seal flanges that might be used in stressful conditions, or where vegetable fiber gaskets have failed.
