The baffle seal plays an important role in effectively sealing the gap between the longitudinal baffle and the heat exchanger shell in high-performance heat exchangers.
We are able to produce precisely adapted separating plate gaskets for most heat exchangers. Particularly suitable for heat exchangers with large or small gaps, due to construction filters, refurbishment or warping.
Cover plate seals are used as self-sealing gaskets, meaning that the sealing force does not come from bolts but from the internal pressure.
These seals are designed for high pressure applications where the internal pressure within the equipment provides the required compressive forces on the gasket to achieve a positive seal. Flexible graphite is primarily used as a base material which is then compressed in a die to a specific density. Extrusion of the graphite can be prevented by installing formed or machined stainless steel caps to the edges of the seal.
These seals are generally rectangular in cross section shape, but can also be manufactured with bevelled edges on either the inside or outside diameters.
For precision alignment of sensitive equipment, our pre-cut stainless steel shims are supplied in five different sizes and thicknesses ranging from 0.05mm to 2.0mm thick.
Shims can be purchased individually, in maintenance friendly replacement packs, or in a purpose designed aluminium carry case.
