Question: What types of gaskets are good for services that include pyrophoric materials?
Keywords: v1i13,pyrophoric,material,service,gasket,correct,appropriate,type
Answer: Typical elastomer gaskets melt and can "flow" under fire conditions, so they're out! Consider using a BINDER FREE graphite gasket for such services. They can be either flat or spiral wound. Additionally, there are many different types of metal gaskets available. Check with suppliers to see if they're gaskets are appropriate for pyrophoric materials.
