Heat Exchanger Gaskets
Fiberglass gaskets are used in high-temperature environments. Elasto Proxy custom-fabricates fiberglass insulation and sealing solutions that meet all of your application requirements.
Furnaces, boilers, stoves, vehicles, and lighting all have something in common. They require high-temperature gaskets for sealing and insulation. Typically, these heat-resistant gaskets are part of a larger assembly or system. For example, a gas furnace may contain heat exchangers made of metal plates and high-temperature gaskets. A variable-speed blower creates a vacuum, induces a draft, and forces hot air past the primary and secondary heat exchangers, which transfer heat between two fluids. The heat exchanger gaskets aren’t the only components in this complex system, but they play an important role.
For engineers, choosing the right materials for heat-resistant gaskets is an essential design consideration. It’s also important to select gasket materials with the right environmental resistance, but without “over-engineering” the part based on actual service temperatures. As an experienced gasket fabricator, Elasto Proxy can recommend the right rubber or non-rubber material for your high-temperature application. Using water jet cutting, we convert gasket materials cost-effectively without metal dies or tooling charges. Our skilled production personnel perform gasket bonding or joining operations with precision. Continue reading
