METAL JACKETED GASKETS
- Metal Jacketed Gaskets consist of a metal exterior covering and a soft material filling.
- The filling seal provides an unbeatable recovery capacity, while the metal exterior covering (the jacket), protects against pressure, temperature fluctuations and corrosion.
- They are extremely useful in several types of application, particularly in heat exchangers.
