Gasket selection for FRP flanges is critical to prevent leakage of corrosive chemicals; however, the stress limitations of the flange material create problems that make this uniquely challenging. In this presentation, Tim Rice of VSP Technologies discusses the empirical method of evaluating the sealing performance of gaskets used in FRP flanges, while providing a comparison of commercially available gaskets geared toward low bolt load applications based on this testing.
