Kamprofile Gaskets consist of a metal core (generally stainless steel) with concentric grooves on either side with sealing materials.
The Kamprofile Gasket is a two-part seal comprising of a precision machined grooved metal core which takes the bolt loading, resulting in extremely high pressure loading, giving excellent deformation and sealing properties - together with a soft sealing material bonded to either side of the core. These materials prevent damage to the flange and fill any surface irregularities.
Kamprofile gaskets are primarily used in heat transfer applications. It offers a safe, effective seal under the most exacting conditions on both standard pipe work and specialist applications in a wide range of sizes and configurations. Kamprofile gaskets are often selected to replace Metal Jacketed Gaskets.
Kamprofiles can be used without sealing layers although this provides an excellent seal, there is risk that the flange surface is inclined to damage especially at high seating loads, which is the reason we recommend Kamprofiles with sealing layers to ensure protection to the flange surfaces from damage in addition to providing an effective seal.

Camprofile or "Grooved" Gaskets have proven themselves in all industrial applications. Camprofile gaskets consist of a metal core (generally stainless steel) with concentric grooves on either side with sealing materials.
The Petrochemical and Chemical industries benefit too, as the gaskets are used in applications where high pressures and temperatures are maintained and consequently high bolt loads need to be controlled. For flange protection the Camprofile gaskets are normally used in conjunction with a covering layer of either PTFE, Graphite,Tantulum, NAF or metal etc , and provided that the layer thickness is correct in application the flange will be completely protected from the grooved profile of the gasket. Advantages Outstanding sealing characteristics at a wide range of seating stress levels. Helps compensate for wide swings in temperature and pressure. Very forgiving of inconsistent bolt torqueing or installation error. Applicable to almost all types of flanges regardless of bolt load available. The working thickness of sealing layers is extremely small reducing fugitive emissions. Low seating stresses required reduce flange damage and gasket removal problems. The gasket cores are reusable reducing cost and eliminating gasket disposal problems. Offers extreme temperature and chemical resistance because of the variety of materials available. Extremely high pressure are easily sealed with confidence.
