Serrated Gaskets (Kammprofile Gaskets) are machined from solid metals in a variety of shapes. Serrated Gaskets are designed for high pressure,high temperature or highly corrosive applications by selecting the most suitable material and shapes. Serrated Gaskets are made of many kinds of metal. There are SS304 Serrated gasket, SS304L serrated gasket, SS316 serrated gasket, SS316L serrated gasket,carbon steel serrated gasket, copper serrated gasket, tinplate serrated gasket etc. Serrated gaskets can also be made of some special type of materias. The metal of serrated gasket is based on the temperature, preesure and liquid.
Serrated Gaskets (Kammprofile Gaskets) consist of a metal core, stainless steel with concentric grooves on both sides. A sealing layer is usually applied on either side and depending on the service duty. The material for this layer can be expanded graphite, PTFE, asbestos free gasket sheeting materials or some soft metal. It can be used without sealing layers to provide an excellent sealing but there is a risk of flange surface damage especially at high seating pressure.
Serrated Gaskets (Kammprofile Gaskets) are the preferred gasket when improved performance at low seating stresses is required. Serrated Gaskets features excellent anti-blow-out properties linked with the reliability of a solid metal-to -metal seal combined with a soft sealing face to provide a tighter joint. It is particularly suitable for applications where high temperature,pressures and fluctuating conditions are encountered. Non-metal cover layers ensure that flanges are not damaged even at extreme loads. This gasket is an ideal replacement of jacketed gaskets for heat exchangers,vessels, reactors and various flange connections.

APPLICATIONS Of Serrated Gaskets (Kammprofile Gaskets)
Accommodates standard ASME flanges as well as weaker and non-circular flanges
Economical replacement for jacketed heat exchanger gaskets
Seals less-than-perfect flanges
Handles pressures from vacuum to Class 2500
Withstands temperatures from cryogenics to 2000°F (1090°C)- depending on sealing material and metal
