KLINGER Graphite Laminate PSM
PSM is suitable for hot water and steam at high temperatures up to 840F (450C).
KLINGER Graphite PSM
Graphite PSM has a 0.1mm thick perforated stainless steel insert to aid in handling properties and to increase blow-out resistance. Equivalent to Garlock Graph-Lock 3125TC.
Pressure/temperature graphs for determining the suitability of a gasket material in a known environment. However, chemical compatibility must also be considered.

In area 1 the gasket material is suitable using common installment practices subject to chemical compatibility.
In area 2 appropriate measures are necessary for installation of the gasket to ensure maximum performance.
In area 3 do not install gaskets in these applications without research and support.
The ability of a gasket to make and maintain a seal depends not only on the style and quality of the gasket material, but also on medium being sealed, the flange design, the amount of pressure applied to the gasket by bolts, and how the gasket is assembled onto the flanges and tightened. These factors are beyond the manufacturer’s control.
