GRAPHITE GASKETS· HIGH TEMPERATURE · STEAM · COMPACTED BELPAGRAF

  • The Belpagraf Compac compacted graphite plate is manufactured with high quality graphite and subjected to a physical-chemical process, which gives the material obtained a high density (1.4-1.6 g / cm3) that together with the highest purity (less 0.2% ash and more than 99% graphite purity) make Belpagraf Compacted the ideal gasket material.
  • The compacted graphite is reinforced with an AISI 316L stainless steel sheet perforated in both directions and 0.1 mm thick, which provides it with a pressure resistance suitable for its use even in steam at high pressures.
  • Belpagraf Compac is the solution to the problems of leaks and sealing of materials without asbestos, especially in steam.
  • Due to its high density, the compacted graphite does not break, improving its manageability and requiring less tightening to obtain the desired level of tightness, not requiring retightening.
  • Due to its special chemical composition:
    • Does not rust
    • Does not lose weight or volume
    • Does not exfoliate (and can even replace the use of spirometallic and conventional metal gaskets)
  • Compacted graphite can be used in multiple uses of high temperature combined with high pressure in temperatures even up to 600ºC (500ºC in oxidizing media).
