Which Durlon® gaskets are recommended for oxygen service?

Modern gaseous and liquid oxygen services require extreme gasket performance flexibility in order to withstand the extremes that these services demand. Typically, PTFE is not recommended for cryogenic applications, however, we have developed Durlon® 9002 as an adaptation of our original glass-filled formula to better meet these extreme system demands. Durlon® 9002 has passed both gaseous, up to 260°C (500°F) and 52 bar (754 psi), and liquid oxygen tests performed by BAM Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing as well as LOX Mechanical Impact Sensitivity Testing (ASTM G86 & ISO 21010), passing with zero reactions out of twenty tests (0/20) at a test reaction frequency of 0%.
