Garlock Inorganic Fiber Style 5500 gasketing material

Style 5500

Inorganic fibers with a nitrile binder

Benefits

Tighter seal

  • Inorganic fiber gasketing offers excellent thermal stability with minimal weight loss
  • Reduced creep relaxation and improved torque retention provide optimal sealability

Temperature resistant

  • Non-oxidizing fibers withstand a continuous operating temperature of up to 550°F (290°C), and maximum spike of 800°F (425°C)
  • IFG® 5500 has passed the Garlock Fire Test and is ABS Fire Safe Type Approved.

Media

  • Water
  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons
  • Oils
  • Gasoline
  • Saturated steam*
  • Inert gases
  • Most refrigerants

*Minimum recommended assembly stress = 4,800psi. Preferred assembly stress = 6,000-10,000psi.  Gasket thickness of 1/16″ strongly preferred.  Retorque the bolts/studs prior to pressurizing the assembly.  For saturated steam above 150psig or superheated steam, consult Hanna Rubber Company.
