CARBONAX GRAPHITE PLATES

Carbonax graphite plates are manufactured from the Carbonax qualities RB, RG, RD and RC and can then be provided with AISI 316L intermediate layers in a further process. The Carbonax graphite plates offer high chemical resistance, high elasticity and thermal stability. Depending on the application, either a perforated intermediate layer, a smooth sheet or a graphite plate without intermediate layer can be recommended.

APPLICATIONS

  • Power generation, petrochemicals, oil and gas industry
  • High temperature and chemical equipment

MAIN FEATURES AND PROPERTIES

  • Fire protection approved (API specification 6FB)
  • Good chemical and thermal resistance
  • The blow-out safety
  • High recovery and good compression performance
  • Low leakage rate (conformity to DIN 3535-6)
  • Low sulphur content
  • Suitable for oxidizing and corrosive media (Carbonax RC)
  • Non-stick properties according to ASTM F607

GRAPHITE FOIL CARBONAX RS

The Carbonax RS is an ultra strong graphite foil with reinforcement of carbon fibres, based on a patented manufacturing method. Carbonax RS has an exceptionally high tensile strength that is more than 20 times higher than standard graphite foils.

FIELD OF APPLICATION

  • Valves
  • Oil and gas industry
  • Excellent solution for high temperatures and maximum pressure
  • Good alternative for graphite and carbon fibre packing rings

MAIN FEATURES AND PARAMETERS

  • No ring breakage during compression
  • High tensile strength
  • No sulphur
  • Efficient heat dissipation
  • Rings could be used in worn-out stuffing boxes
  • Extended pressure / temperature range

Carbonax RS can be used to produce highly efficient and pressure-resistant, compression-moulded packing rings. These rings are used under extreme conditions, such as high temperatures and pressures, thanks to their unique elastic properties that allow even distribution of tension.

Reliable performance of the Carbonax RS H 1600 packing rings allows use in extreme conditions resulting from the combination of excellent heat dissipation and anti-friction properties of expanded graphite and the final strength of carbon fibers.
