KLINGERsealex
The universal sealing solution
 
If need be, you can use two strips of tape bonded over one another.
When re-assembling the flange, you can work with the usual assembly torque – then fit and forget.
There is no need to re-tighten the bolts with KLINGERsealex.
 
However, if it is possible to retighten the flange assembly after 24
hours, then you can reduce the applied bolt load by half.
Despite its versatility and ease of handling. KLINGERsealex should
not be viewed as a temporary solution, but as a high grade permanent seal
with unique characteristics.

The following applications of KLINGERsealex will give you some idea of the innovative uses of this product. Further references are available on request.
 
KLINGERsealex in turbine construction
Operating conditions:
8 bar at 240°C.
A sealing material was required for a number of flanges in the low-pressure area of the turbine house of a nuclear
power station.
KLINGERsealex succeeded in replacing the traditional seals and reduced the time needed to clean the
flange faces giving savings of some 40-workforce hours every time the joints were replaced. These savings
are in addition to the savings made in dismantling and assembling the joint and in the cost of materials, which
would otherwise have been used.
 
KLINGERsealex in dryer kilns
Operating conditions: 230°C.
Tunnel kilns for the kiln drying of coated/lacquered steel and aluminium metal elements on the air flow feed
and air extraction sides are sealed with the new ”miracle of the roll”. KLINGERsealex replaces woven tape
fabric, flocked side panel cladding and other insulation materials with or without asbestos. KLINGERsealex adjusts extremely
well to all flange sealing conditions and possess outstanding resistance to paint solvents and cleaning agents.
 
KLINGERsealex as a temporary solution in pipeline systems
Operating conditions:
Aggressive agents at 5 bar and 32°C.
An extremely aggressive mixture of distilled water, vulcanisation agents, carrier agents and pigments is
conveyed via a pumping station and associated piping system.
KLINGERsealex is also employed here for repairs in emergencies. The results are surprising. An emergency
solution becomes a permanent fixture.
 
Installation instructions
Clean flanges, cut off a lenght of KLINGERsealex slightly longer than the actual circumference of the seal.
Peel off the adhesive protection strip and press KLINGERsealex into position. Cross the free ends of
KLINGERsealex adjacent to a bolt hole and bolt up the mating surfaces using the recommended clamping
force and bolt tightening patters.
