Flexitallic Manufactures its Largest Ever Gaskets for Energy from Waste Plant

Flexitallic, the global market leader in the manufacture and supply of specialist sealing products and services, has produced one of its largest ever Flexpro™ Kammprofile Gaskets for an innovative renewable energy plant.  

Measuring approximately four metres in diameter, the gaskets will be utilised within a re-gassifier system at a new energy from waste plant being constructed in the North East of England.

The gaskets, which were manufactured at Flexitallic’s production facility in Cleckheaton, West Yorkshire, are one of a range of sealing products supplied by the company for the new plant, all of which feature the company’s ground breaking high temperature Thermiculite® material.

Exclusive to Flexitallic, Thermiculite® gasket material was developed over a 15-year period for use in critical services applications, from cryogenics to temperatures in excess of 1000oC. 

Comprised of thermally and chemically exfoliated Vermiculite, a versatile, inorganic, non-oxidising mineral, Thermiculite® demonstrates considerable versatility and has become specified by name throughout industry. 

With no other material on the market able to match its ability to withstand high temperatures and aggressive media, Thermiculite® is the perfect solution for the plant’s demanding operations.

Paul Marray, UK Sales Director at Flexitallic, said:

“We are continually evolving our design and production methods to meet the developing challenges facing our customers. 

“The demands on the energy industry to develop new low-carbon power-generating solutions are leading to the creation of innovative new technologies, which requires the support of a creative and skilled supply chain.  Flexitallic is leading the way in the development of new sealing solutions that push the boundaries of temperature and pressure that meet and exceed the requirements of evolving industries.

“This bespoke Thermiculite® faced Flexpro™ Kammprofile Gasket demonstrates our ability to not only react to the requirements of industry, but provide them with an advanced solution, which increases safety and productivity across a plant.”
