Ring Joint Gasket

Ring Joint Gasket

RTJ gaskets are designed to seal by “initial line contact” or wedging action between the mating flange and the gasket. Usually used in oil, petroleum and chemical process fields. Precision machined, metallic sealing rings suitable for high pressure and high temperature applications.

Type R (oval/ octagonal)
R Style is available in both oval and octagonal configurations, the octagonal type is recommended in higher sealing efficiency, both types are  interchangeable on modern  octagonal type grooved flanges. However,only the oval cross section can be used in the old type round bottom groove.

Type RX    
RX is a pressure- energized adaptation of  the standard  Style R gasket.The modified design uses a pressure – energized  effect  that  improves the efficiency of  the seal as  the internal pressure of  the system increases.

Type BX  
BX pressure energized gaskets are manufactured in accordance with API 6A and are designed for use on  pressurized systems up to 20,000 PSI. on both the inner and outer diameters. All BX gaskets incorporate a pressure balance hole to ensure  equalization of pressure that may  be trapped in the grooves.
