Gasket is sealing material placed between connecting flanges to create a static seal. This will maintain the leakage proof sealing in all operating conditions. Different types of gaskets are used to achieve the leak proof sealing. Flange gaskets shall be selected based on multiple process factors, such as operating temperature/pressure, type of fluid conveyed by the pipeline, flange type, size, pressure rating, material grade, and specifications.
Pipe insulation is a protective covering designed to help maintain an acceptable temperature for pipes and any substance flowing through the pipes.
