FAQ | Compressed Gasket Sheet

What gaskets can I use for Steam? What is superheated steam?

Steam can be found in plants in two forms: saturated and superheated. Saturated steam is standard boiler steam and has a definite temperature for each pressure. Superheated steam is steam at a higher temperature than is found on the saturated steam curve for that particular pressure.

Phelps recommends the following materials and products for Superheated Steams

  1. Phelps compressed Aramid with Nitrile Binder
  2. Frenzelit Expanded Graphite (Novatec and Novaphit)
  3. Phelps Spiral wound Metal Gaskets

Please be aware of the pressure and P x T limits for each style
