GORE-TEX: Gaskets

August 23, 2004
GORE-TEX TriGuard gaskets are the ideal sealing solution for municipal water and wastewater treatment plants, as well as other facilities that handle chlorine gas in their manufacturing processes. The chlorine is typically supplied from 150-lb cylinders or ton containers, thereby making tight sealing an absolute necessity. Following extensive performance testing, GORE-TEX TriGuard gaskets have been recognized by the Chlorine Institute as highly suited to sealing fragile pipe flanges in chlorine systems. Applied with a low bolt load, the gaskets seal tight and stay tight, even with varying flange conditions. The unique sealed inner diameter design eliminates the risk of chlorine absorption into the gasket. Since their inclusion in the Chlorine Institute's Pamphlet #95 "Gaskets for Chlorine Service," GORE-TEX TriGuard gaskets have been adopted for use in many chlorine cylinder and ton container valve outlet caps and yoke-valve connections. The gaskets also deliver superior performance in halogen gas applications.
