3. THE FUTURE


klinger maxiflex pro x gasket


The Maxiflex Pro X has been designed to offer a standard spiral wound-style gasket that has been specifically engineered to prevent the ingress of potentially corrosive media into the flange sealing area.


By combining Mica and Graphite in the sealing element we provide a safe, tight, and long-term solution to Hydrocarbon based industries and those exposed to saltwater.


The proactive element of the Pro X is engineered through the inclusion of a KammProfile based inner ring, faced with biaxially orientated, multi-directional PTFE.



Features & Benefits:


  • Fire safe to API 6FB
  • Designed to ASME B16.20 2017
  • Gasket factors; M: 3 Y: 10,000
  • Standard Construction: 316SS winding strip / MGM filler / 316L KAMM INNER / PTFE Facing
