Ring Joint Gaskets are used with Ring Type Joint (RTJ) flanges.
The Ring Type Joint (RTJ) gasket is a forged ring that fits into the machined groove of an RTJ flange. The ring-type joint gaskets are either octagonal or oval in cross-section.
RTJ gaskets are generally used for high-pressure and high-temperature applications. It is widely used in refinery, petrochemical, pressure vessel joints, and oil field drilling industries.
The Ring type joints are manufactured as per ASME B16.20. They are dimensionally suitable for use with flanges manufactured as per standards ASME B 16.5, ASME B16.47, and API 6A
These gaskets can be used for high pressures up to 20,000 PSI
RTJ is an extremely reliable and robust sealing and can be manufactured from a variety of metals based on the pressure application and flange grade.
