Topog-E® Molded Rubber Gaskets - Series 180 - Obround - We are only able to supply this product in the USA, Canada, and Mexico
The steam boiler market makes extreme demands on gaskets; Topog-E® molded rubber gaskets are specifically formulated to meet and exceed these demands and deliver industry-standard performance.
Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets have been refined through a series of over 600 research formulation tests to ensure that they are able to meet the exacting performance standards of the steam boiler industry.
Conform to the topography of the mating surfaces.
Withstand a boiler's full, continuous, and cycling operating pressures.
Withstand continuous exposure to water treatment chemicals.
Withstand continuous exposure to ion and oxygen attack in hot air.
Steam boilers: up to 180 psi (12 bar) and 380° F. (193° C)
Water, condensate, etc. vessels: 200+ psi (14 bar) and less than 300°F. (150°C)
When used on steam pressure vessels Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets are typically used at operating pressures of up to 180 PSI (12 bar) and saturated steam temperatures up to 380° F. (193° C) for an average service life of one year. When used in other applications (e.g. condensate, water, and air vessels) Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets are sometimes used at pressures above 200 PSI (14 bar) where temperatures are typically more moderate (e.g. below 250°F./121°C.). When operating under less severe conditions (e.g. water applications at ambient temperatures) Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets can provide very long service lives.
Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets have been used successfully around the world for over forty years. In general, any type of industrial pressure vessel or tank that has inspection openings is a potential application where Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets can be used as a cost-effective sealing device. In addition to using them in steam pressure vessels, customers also use Topog-E® molded gaskets and sheet material with great success in many other applications:
Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets are specifically formulated to have excellent resistance to steam and hot and cold water.
They also have good resistance to:
Silicone oils and greases
Animal and vegetable fats
Water treatment chemicals, when used in accordance with supplier's guidelines, should not have a significant effect on the service life of properly installed Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets.
Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets are not recommended for use in applications where they see direct exposure to high concentrations of aromatic hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, or petroleum-based oils, fuels, and lubricants.
All information in this data sheet is based on data believed to be reliable, however, we make no guarantee or warranty of performance of Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets. Because there are many application-specific factors that can affect service life it is always advisable to first test Topog-E® Series 180 gaskets in a particular application to determine their ultimate suitability.
