The Style R ring type is manufactured in accordance with API 6A and ASME B 16.20, to suite API 6B and ASME/ANSI B 16.5 flanges. Style R ring type joints are manufactured in both oval and octagonal configurations. Both styles are interchangeable on the modern flat bottom groove. Style R ring type joints are designed to seal at pressure up to 6,250 psi in accordance with API 6A pressure ratings.

The style RX ring type joint is manufactured in accordance with API 6A and ASME B 16.20, to suite API 6B and ASME/ANSI 16.5 flanges. Style RX ring type joint is a pressure energized adoption of the style R ring type joint. The style RX is designed to fit the modern flat bottom groove, and is interchangeable with the standard style R ring type joint. However, since the style RX is significantly taller than a style R, larger flange make-up distances will result. Style R ring type joints are designed to seal pressure up to 6.250 psi in accordance with ASME/ANSI B 16.5 pressure ratings and up to 5,000 psi in accordance with API 6A pressure ratings. The modified design uses a pressure energized effect which improves the efficiency of the seal as the internal pressure of the system increases. Selected sizes incorporate a pressure passage hole to allow for pressure equilisation each side of the sealing faces.

The style BX ring type joint design exhibits a pressure energised effect which improves the efficiency of the seal as the internal pressure of the system increases. All BX ring type joints incorporate a pressure passage hole to allow for pressure equalisation each side of the sealing faces.

On assembly, metal to metal contact of the flange faces is achieved. The style BX is not interchangeable with any other style, and is only suited for API 6BX flanges. Style BX ring type joints are designed to seal pressure up to 20 000 psi in accordance with API 6A pressure ratings. 

Function & Durability

The performance and service life of KLINGER gaskets depend in large measure on proper storage and fitting, factors beyond the manufacture's control. We can, however, vouch for the excellent quality of our products. With this in mind, please also observe our installation instructions.
