TA Luft in Accordance with VDI 2200

Gaskets for industrial applications

This certificate is based on the test program of TÜV Anlagen- und Umwelttechnik or VDI 2440, November 2000 edition, which covers qualification testing of flange seals with respect to their leak rate, blow-out resistance and continuous functionality and verification of sealing characteristics and controlled production quality. The above points were verified in an initial test. Prerequisite is the use of flange systems made of steel, which, when installed, achieve or exceed minimum surface pressure.

Article: Gasket selection using the gasket design factors as per EN 13555

Gaskets for industrial applications

The European Standard EN 13555, updated in the summer of 2014, defines the sealing gasket design factors and test methods for round flange connections. This allows the comparison of the properties of gaskets. Among other things, the standard establishes a new definition of the maximum surface pressure. What changes does this bring for the operators of plants and what criteria should be considered in the selection of gaskets using the characteristic as per EN 13555?
