Nomenclature


Gasket Styles
LB = LineBacker®
GL = Garlock

Sleeves & Washers
SW = Single Washers
DW = Double Washers
Type Flange
W = Weld Neck
S = Slip-on
R = RTJ
BX = API BX
RX = API RX
O = Other - Denote Specs. and Table


Type “F” Gaskets
Type “F” Gaskets are made to fit within the bolt hole circle of the flange. The O.D. of the gasket extends out to the I.D. of the bolt hole circle for good protection against foreign material “shorting-out” the flange.


For pipe diameters over 24” or ANSI Class pressure ratings of 600# or greater, use G-10 sleeves and G-10 washers where temperatures and other conditions permit.
