New Gasket from Victaulic

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Victaulic developed a new nitrile gasket for the maritime industry: the Grade T “Type A” gasket, designed for use with specific Victaulic couplings and flange adapters, and designed to simplify gasket specification and offers superior fire-resistant performance. The nitrile Grade T Type A gasket can be specified for a wide range of services, eliminating the need to use multiple types of gaskets for different applications and simplifying gasket selection. The gaskets may be used in Class I, II and III piping systems outside boiler rooms in accordance with Table 7 IACS UR P2. The gasket is DNV GL Type Approved as fire-resistant type when used with Style 07 ZeroFlex rigid couplings, Styles 75 and 77 flexible couplings and Style 741 VicFlange adapters.
