Flexitallic has unveiled Corriculite, for use in corrosion sensitive applications, including those prevalent in the offshore industry. A newly-developed gasket filler material, Corriculite tackles the problem of flange face corrosion on bolted joints in seawater and hydrocarbon applications supporting industry’s focus on maximising asset integrity, the extension of equipment life and increased operational productivity.
In response to customer demands for an improved material with strong anti-corrosion characteristics, Flexitallic has created the filler material for a range of spiral wound gaskets, specifically designed for use in corrosion-sensitive environments in industries such as oil and gas, power and marine.
Corriculite ensures seals maintain integrity by preventing galvanic corrosion and is Fire Safe to API 6FB. Conventional graphite materials fail to prevent the corrosion of flanges due to graphite’s electrical conductivity and position in the galvanic series. This leads to premature failure and leakage.
