Serrated metal gaskets
Maxiprofile grooved, metal gaskets consist of a serrated metallic core
with a soft facing material. The Maxiprofile style gasket is mainly used
in vessel applications where the gasket width is limited. Maxiprofiles
are also often used as an upgrade on applications currently using metal
jacketed gaskets due to the improved leak tightness, ease of
installation and the possibility of reuse.
The depth and profile of the groove is specifically designed to
facilitate densification of the facing material and create a very leak
tight seal with low gasket stresses.
Maxiprofile gaskets are often used in heat exchangers and can be
manufactured with many bar configurations.
