Superior Gasket Quality

Vulcan Seals gaskets are produced to be the highest quality available in the market. We have eliminated common product issues found in the market, guaranteeing a consistent fit and reliable performance.

  • Minimal encapsulation-to-core gap - reducing the potential for encapsulation damage
  • Superior gasket flatness - ensuring even contact across the sealing surface
  • Smooth sealing surface - free from warps and kinks to ensure no potential leak paths
  • Exceptional chemical resistance - a cost-efficient replacement for FFKM seals for aggressive chemicals

 

 Encapsulation and gasket flatness

 

What are Encapsulated Kamlock™ Gaskets?

Encapsulated gaskets by Vulcan Seals for the universal sealing of cam and groove hose couplings.

The rectangular cross-section inner core of silicone or Viton rubber is protected by an encapsulation of FEP, providing extreme chemical and high temperature resistance.

 

Features

  • Universal cam and groove hose coupling seal
  • FEP encapsulation
  • Silicone or Viton inner core
  • Extreme chemical resistance
  • Wide temperature range
  • Non-contaminating
  • Large range of sizes

Benefits

  • No need to specify different elastomer materials for different applications
  • Leak-free performance: low compression set and elastomer core energiser avoids cold flow leakage
  • Easy installation and maintenance due to the non-stick surface with low coefficient of friction
  • Sanitary, sterilisable and FDA / EC specification compliant encapsulation
  • Superior seal for bulk liquid transfer couplings in manufacturing, distribution or storage
  • Elimination of coupling leakage from chemical attack or creep issues, unlike traditional solid PTFE gaskets

 

Material Options

Encapsulation FEP
Inner core Silicone or Viton™

 

White silicone elastomer core is also available, with the same physical properties and sealing performance as a red silicone core, for operation temperatures from -60°C (-75°F) to +205°C (+400°F)

The white colour is ideal for use in pharmaceutical, hygienic and sanitary applications, where red silicone may not be suitable. Contact us to discuss any demand requirements.
