Gasket Selection Guide

GASKET CONSTRUCTION

The grooved piping concept is simple and reliable. The coupling housing performs several functions as an integral part of the pipe joint. It contains the gasket, which is fully enclosed, reinforcing and securing it in position for proper sealing. The housing also engages on the pipe around the full pipe circumference and creates a unified joint while providing the advantages of mechanical joining. The sealing efficiency of Victaulic gaskets is such that the gasket forms an initial seal as it is stretched over the pipe ends. As the housing segments are tightened, the resilient elastomeric gasket conforms to the internal cavity of the housing, further enhancing the gaskets seal against the pipe, both in pressure and vacuum conditions. The Victaulic gasket is pressure responsive, providing increased sealing action as the internal pressure is increased. The combination of these characteristics creates a permanent, leak-tight triple seal on a variety of piping materials including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, PVC, ductile iron and copper. The gasket is molded to fit the internal cavity of the housing. Upon placement of the housing around the gasket and into the grooves, the gasket is positioned. UNIQUE PRESSURE RESPONSIVE GASKET FORMS A TRIPLE SEAL

SEALS BETWEEN THE PIPE ENDS AND THE GROOVE.

The gasket is then slightly compressed as the housings are tightened to secure the gasket lips in a firm seat on the pipe, between the grooves and the pipe ends. Line pressure serves to strengthen the seal through the combination of normal gasket resilience, housing reinforcement and the action of pressure downward on the lips.

Gasket Selection Guide

GASKET/O-RING DATA

Victaulic offers a variety of synthetic rubber gaskets/o-rings to provide the option of grooved piping products for the widest range of applications. To assure the maximum life for the service intended, proper gasket selection and specification in ordering is essential. Many factors must be considered in determining the optimum gasket/o-ring for a specific service. The foremost consideration is temperature, along with concentration of product, duration of service and continuity of service. Temperatures beyond the recommended limits have a degrading effect on the polymer. Therefore, there is a direct relationship between temperature, continuity of service and gasket life. Services listed are General Service Recommendations only. It should be noted that there are services for which these gaskets/o-rings are not recommended. Reference should always be made to the latest Victaulic Gasket Selection Guide for specific service recommendations and for a listing of services which are not recommended. Gasket recommendations apply only to Victaulic gaskets and o-rings. Recommendations for a particular service do not necessarily imply compatibility of the coupling housing, related fittings or other components for the same service. These recommendations do not apply to rubber-lined or rubber seal valves or other rubber-lined products. Refer to Valve Materials Selection in Section 08.02 or contact Victaulic for recommendations. Victaulic gaskets are clearly marked as part of the mold with the gasket size, style and compound for easy identification. Potable Water Grade E EPDM, Grade E Vic-Plus, Grade EHP and Grade EHP Vic-Plus gaskets were submitted to Underwriters Laboratories Inc. for evaluation in potable water applications. EPDM material was tested to the requirements of ANSI/NSF 61 (Drinking Water System Components - Health Effects). Successful completion of this testing allows us to state that our EPDM gasket material is UL classified in accordance with ANSI/NSF 61 for cold (+86F/+30C) and hot (+180F/+82C) potable water service. Similarly our Grade M halogenated butyl gasket material (which is typically used with our AWWA sized products) has also been UL classified in accordance with ANSI/NSF 61 for cold (+86F/+30C) potable water service. The data provided is intended for use as an aid to qualified designers when products are installed in accordance with the latest available Victaulic product line.

Chemical compositions are listed in alphabetical order. Unless otherwise noted, temperatures are ambient. For chemicals or combinations not listed contact Victaulic for recommendations. DO NOT ASSUME THAT A SERVICE SIMILAR TO THE ONE LISTED CAN BE ACCOMMODATED WITH THE SAME GASKET. The data and recommendations presented are based upon the best information available resulting from our field experience and laboratory testing by our own Engineering Department. In addition, we have incorporated the recommendations supplied by prime producers of basic copolymer materials and information furnished by leading molders of rubber products. The information presented in this guide is general in scope and should be used only with this full knowledge and understanding. In unusual, critical or severe services, full information should be referred to Victaulic. Where possible, materials should be subjected to simulated service conditions to determine their suitability for the service intended. Furthermore, it should not be concluded that, in instances where a liner is not affected by several substances used alone, their combination will have no reaction on the liner. Caution should be exercised with explosive, inflammable or toxic fluids. All gasket recommendations are based on pressure and temperature limitations published by Victaulic. Borderline services always should be verified by Victaulic. Where two gaskets are shown under Gasket Grade, both are acceptable under normal conditions for the service listed.
