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
- Phelps compressed Aramid with Nitrile Binder
- Frenzelit Expanded Graphite (Novatec and Novaphit)
- Phelps Spiral wound Metal Gaskets
Please be aware of the pressure and P x T limits for each style
