Corrosion resistant gaskets for sea water and hydrocarbon service
Corriculite: A revolutionary new filler material for spiral wound metal gaskets specifically designed for use in corrosion-sensitive environments such as seawater and hydrocarbon services. For use across a number of industries, including oil and gas, power generation and marine.
This non-conductive filler provides superior sealing performance and corrosion resistance. Conventional graphite gaskets, for example, promote the initiation and propagation of corrosion due to graphite’s electrical conductivity.
Corriculite is an inert, non-conductive filler material:
- Remains inactive in corrosion mechanisms
- Prevents galvanic corrosion
- Ensures that seals maintain integrity
- By avoiding the onset of corrosion; process disruption, unwanted costs and safety concerns are avoided as well.
