Flange insulation kit
A flange insulation kit includes gasket rings, washers, and sleeves of an insulating material. The set helps to prevent cathodic or galvanic corrosion of flanges or pipes.
Insulation kits are mainly applied in pipeline systems, where the kits have to be mounted at strategic points. We are happy to advise you.
Properties of flange insulation kits
The flange insulation set is mainly applied in pipeline systems (water, oil, gas and solids), where it prevents cathodic or galvanic corrosion of flanges or pipes. Flange insulation sets have the following properties:
- Electrical insulation
- Cathodic protection (CP)
Materials of the kit
The flange-insulation set is composed of packing rings, washers, and sleeves of an insulating material.
|Gasket rings||Neoprene-faced phenolic|
|Washers||Reinforced phenolic or plated mild steel|
The flange insulation set has to be mounted at strategic points.
Flange insulation kit types
Ridderflex supplies different types of flange insulation kits according to DIN and ANSI sizes:
|Type D||Type D is intended for the standard ring type joint flanges. The section of the seals can have an oval shape.|
|Type E||This set has flat gaskets for full face flanges (with bolt holes).|
|Type F||This set has flat gaskets for raised face flanges (without bolt holes). Type F is not as efficient as type E, but it has the advantage that it can be mounted without disassembling the entire flange.|
