Industrial Gaskets stocks an extensive range of Ring Type Joint - RTJ gaskets.
Most standard sizes of RTJ Ring Type Joints can be supplied Rubber Coated.
A Rubber Coated Ring Type Joint - RTJ is totally enclosed in a Nitrile rubber coating. The material of the Ring Type Joint - RTJ is usually Soft Iron or Low Carbon / Mild Steel.
This type of Ring Type Joint or RTJ has three main functions.
- It is used in pressure or hydro testing to minimise damage to flanges
- The rubber contact points provide additional seals while protecting the flange surface
- It provides increased assurance against corrosion, which can occur between conventional Ring Type Joints and the engaged surfaces of the groove.
They are available coated in a range of materials including 316 Stainless Steel, Soft Iron, Carbon Steel, Low Mild Steel, F5 and Super Duplex.
