Webcast: Differences Between Standard Gaskets and Isolation Gaskets

Although both standard gaskets and isolation gaskets seal flange leakage, isolation gaskets generally have many other advantages over standard gaskets. Better yet, newer developments in isolation gaskets are widening the gap between the two.

This presentation from Tim Hurley, senior product manager at GPT Industries (Denver, Colorado, USA) and Ian Kinnear, sales and applications engineer at GPT, describes the differences between types of gaskets and the benefits derived from various designs. It also relays pitfalls and common mistakes to avoid.

In this webcast, which includes a focus on greenhouse gas reductions and sustainable energies, attendees will learn:

  • Differences between isolation gaskets and other gasket types; 
  • Why Isolation gasket design is superior to other types of gaskets; 
  • The role isolation kits play in preventing galvanic corrosion, microbial corrosion, and crevice corrosion; 
  • The role isolation kits play in cathodic protection systems; 
  • What isolation solves, and where isolation can be used in your piping infrastructure; 
  • The considerations that need to be accounted for when selecting a gasket 
  • What is the role of isolation gaskets in the future?


About GPT

GPT describes itself as the world’s leading manufacturer of critical service flange systems, electrical flange isolation kits (for cathodic protection and galvanic corrosion prevention), and isolation joints for the oil and gas production, processing, gas transmission, pipeline, power generation, and utility industries. GPT products are approved and in use by virtually all of the major international oil and gas operators, engineering contractors, and gas transmission companies. GPT products are designed to be problem-solving, engineered solutions to industrial sealing and isolation problems that continually plague conventional sealing/isolation products.
