KLINGER Eco-Seal gasket: A new industry leader in sustainability
KLINGER United Kingdom introduces the KLINGER Eco-Seal spiral wound gasket: A new standard in sustainability for the oil and gas industry
The Eco-Seal spiral wound gasket offers superior leakage performance for flange integrity and reduced fugitive emissions. As the tightest spiral wound gasket ever produced by KLINGER, the Eco-Seal is positioned to set the bar for leakage control.
Eco-Seal gasket from KLINGER United Kingdom
As sustainability and eco awareness take global priority, clean energy standards are becoming increasingly stringent. Leakage and emissions reduction are of clear concern in the oil and gas industry. Fugitive emissions (uncontrolled or unmonitored emissions from pressurized containment) are one metric gaining focus as green efforts ramp up. Current regulatory guidelines call for setting maximum leakage rates at set compressive loads, giving manufacturers a defined standard to reach.
Rather than settling on attaining current ASME B16.20-2017 standards, KLINGER UK, with the Eco-Seal, have gone further and developed a spiral wound gasket that is 10 times tighter than our standard. In conjunction, KLINGER is committed to quantifying the volume of fugitive emissions saved. Testing across multiple sizes and class ratings of Eco-Seal gaskets will give customers clear metrics for how these seals act and perform, allowing them to develop tangible system-wide green ratings. Studies show that flanges account for up to one third of all fugitive emissions, making the Eco-Seal gasket’s focus on raised face bolted joints a prime opportunity to greatly lower a system’s environmental impact.
Integrity and sustainability
The launch of this high performing eco gasket with tangible leakage metrics is a timely addition to the KLINGER UK product family, as KLINGER Integrity Services expands their integrated system solutions. Customers can make use of a whole ecosystem of products and services to install, test, and monitor their systems for safety and efficiency. Technologies such as LLDAR and INTEGRITY XPERT provide fast and precise system feedback, while onsite training and specialty solutions are tailored to the customer’s needs and regulatory requirements. Scalable services and expert field personnel provide design guidance and troubleshooting for any system, however unusual or problematic.
Eco gaskets and the future
As the oil and gas industry searches for new and more efficient solutions, the ability to measure system performance will grow ever more critical. Precision products like the Eco-Seal gasket will lead the way in sustainable pipeline design.
