Linebacker® Flange Isolation Kits by GPT
LineBacker® sealing gaskets use a rectangular sealing element, referred to as a "quad" ring, in combination with a unique groove design to effectively seal and isolate flanges of all types. With the unique quad ring design, elastic memory is provided for elastomers not normally associated with this characteristic. Materials such as PTFE may therefore be used as sealing elements, dramatically increasing the ability to match gasket materials to service conditions. This greater variety of materials also provides excellent temperature and chemical range compatibility. LineBacker® sealing gaskets are self-energizing resulting in a positive seal without excessive bolt loads - as are often required with flat gaskets.
