Individual Ring Hardness Verification

Hardness of Ring Type Joint gaskets is a critical factor when sealing RTJ flanges. The hardness of Ring Type Joint (RTJ) gaskets is critical for effectively sealing RTJ flanges, especially in high-pressure and high-temperature settings.

To achieve a dependable seal without damaging RTJ grooves, it’s essential that these gaskets are at least 30 Brinell Hardness Number (BHN) softer than the flange material.

AMG’s vast stock includes annealed SS316L ring type joints which have a maximum hardness of 135BHN. tel:01484723800
