The FSCCG has been developed by Klinger as a solution to sealing corroded flanges which are particularly evident in the offshore environment. Routine inspection of flanges can be completed with the knowledge that the joint can be remade even if flange corrosion is evident.
Consisting of a high precision and high strength metal core that is epoxy resin coated to resist corrosion and give central alignment of the gasket within the flange. The highly conformable GORE™ GR Sheet Gasketing ePTFE primary seal flows into the damaged flange to create a seal and limit further corrosion. Furthermore, a secondary seal of KLINGER®topchem 2000 with uniquely holds fire-safe approval to API 6FA, conveys excellent blow out resistance and minimal gasket creep over the life time of the joint.
