Optimize your total cost of ownership with higher safety and better performance. Our ORIGRAF® graphite pressure seals are designed to excel in extreme thermal and pressure cycles.

About Technetics Group ORIGRAF® Graphite Seals

Unlike other seals, the graphite flexibility of ORIGRAF® graphite seals can avoid the influence of surface defects, even in offloading conditions. Unlike flexible graphite cut gaskets, the compression of our ORIGRAF® die-formed seal is limited by a mechanical stop, such as a groove or inner or outer ring. The design prevents excessive seating stress on the seal during transients when assemblies are subject to extreme pressure or temperature.

Product Features

  • ORIGRAF Seals for Power GenerationExcellent elastic recovery, capable of reaching 40% compression recovery/spring back effect
  • Low creep and relaxation
  • Good resistance to radiation (ideal for nuclear applications) and chemicals
  • Adaptable to extreme thermal and pressure changes
  • Excellent resis­tance to radial motion
  • Metal to metal contact
  • Not vulnerable to asymmetric tightening or torqueing bolts of assembly
  • Does not bond to the contact surfaces, so can be easily removed
