I-Flex electrical isolation systems

I-Flex electrical isolation systems

I-Flex electrical isolation systems are comprised of a main isolation gasket in combination with bolt isolation washers and sleeves. The main gasket is constructed from solid metallic core machined on upper and lower contact surfaces with Flexitallic’s specially designed serration profile. The core surfaces are faced with structurally modified PTFE based on Flexitallic’s proprietary Sigma® technology.
Bolt isolation is achieved by using a smaller version of the main isolation gasket located between the flange and a steel backing washer/nut at both ends of the stud bolt; thus preventing electrical continuity via the studs. Bolt sleeves can be supplied in a number of materials; the main consideration being application temperature.
The specially engineered materials used in I-Flex are able to extend the current operating temperatures seen with traditional isolation technology. This allows designers and operators greater choice in service conditions, no longer restricted by traditional sealing technology.
