A history of quality

Spiralit has a legacy of exacting quality control and high-caliber products, as exemplified by their TA-Lüft VDI-2440 and UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008 certifications. This attention to detail meshes perfectly with KLINGER’s commitment to offering the highest quality materials, creating a partnership that will allow current and future customers access to the best products on the market.

Spiralit offers a multitude of sealing products for major industries such as oil and gas, chemical processing, and power plants. Their flat gaskets include specialty options such as PTFE and eyeleted gaskets. Spiral wound gaskets are available coated and uncoated, with a variety of metals and filler materials depending on project needs. 3-ply and metal jacketed Kammprofile gaskets are suitable for high compression applications. Metallic gaskets for petrochemical applications come in a variety of alloys and shapes, while calibrated shims are tailored for use with compressors, turbines, and pumps. Five types of flange insulation kits prevent contact corrosion and galvanic corrosion in a variety of systems. Packings come in multiple yarns to suit the entire pH range and multiple types of media. Seal rings include standard rubber O rings, as well as specialty items like Gard Oil, a labyrinth system instead of lip seal rings.
