Garlock 5500 (Grey Sheet)

Garlock IFG Style 5500 Inorganic fibers with a nitrile binder.
Description

A compressed non-asbestos gasket sheet of inorganic fibers and high-temperature fillers with a nitrile (NBR) binder.  Designed for general-service applications up to 550° F (290° C) continuous.  ABS Fire Safe Type Approved.

Garlock® Inorganic fiber gasketing (IFG®) offers excellent thermal stability with minimal weight loss, reduced creep relaxation and improved torque retention provide optimal sealability. Inorganic fibers have excellent thermal and oxidation resistance. Non-oxidizing fibers withstand a continuous operating temperature of up to 550°F (290°C), and maximum spike of 800°F (425°C).  

 

Applications:

  • Tighter seal
  • Inorganic fiber gasketing offers excellent thermal stability with minimal weight loss
  • Reduced creep relaxation and improved torque retention provide optimal sealability
  • Non-oxidizing fibers withstand a continuous operating temperature of up to 550°F (290°C), and maximum spike of 800°F (425°C)
  • IFG® 5500 has passed the Garlock Fire Test and is ABS Fire Safe Type Approved.
  • Temperature resistant

  

Compatible With:

  •  Water
  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons
  • Oils
  • Gasoline
  • Saturated steam*
  • Inert gases
  • Most refrigerants

*Minimum recommended assembly stress = 4,800psi. Preferred assembly stress = 6,000-10,000psi.  Gasket thickness of 1/16" strongly preferred.  Retorque the bolts/studs prior to pressurizing the assembly.  For saturated steam above 150psig or superheated steam, consult Garlock Engineering.
