This book presents all types of gaskets used in industrial applications for sealing flanged joints of piping and equipment. It outlines the use of compressed gasket sheet, PTFE and other non-metallic materials, metal/non-metal composites, metal gaskets and flange electrical insulation materials. It also includes design and installation considerations, which should be followed to prevent leakage. Probable causes of leakage are treated in a practical and objective manner. The wide variety of gasket materials and gasket designs available make this book a useful for all involved in design, fabrication and installation of high pressure industrial piping and equipment.

This book was written with the purpose of providing better design and application of Industrial Gaskets. It has been very successful in several countries and has become a reference for gasket applications. This Second English Language Edition, revised and expanded, incorporates the latest advances in gasket technology since the last printing.
On analyzing certain leaks :
- which at first glance seemed to be caused by gasket deficiencies
- we verified, after a more careful observation, that little attention had been paid to details such as:
- Flange and Gasket design.
- Correct choice of gasket materials.
- Installation procedures.
The great problems confronted by industries such as explosions, fires and environmental pollution caused by leaks, can be avoided with the correct gasket design and installation. The objective of this book is to help prevent accidents by promulgating a wider understanding of industrial gaskets, specialty sheet packing and spiral wound gaskets; undoubtedly the types most widely used in industrial applications. Existing market conditions were carefully taken into consideration. Materials and gasket styles, which are not commercially available or difficult to find, were omitted; emphasis being given to the most accessible and widely used products and materials.
