Gasket Heat Exchanger EPDM
Plate gaskets are a key component of plate heat exchangers. The working temperature of the plate heat exchanger is essentially the temperature that the gasket can withstand, and the working pressure of the plate heat exchanger is also restricted by the gasket. EPDM rubber is a terpolymer of ethylene, propylene and a non-conjugated diene. The most important feature of EPDM is its superior resistance to oxidation, ozone and erosion. Since EPDM is a polyolefin family, it has excellent vulcanization characteristics. Among all rubbers, EPDM has the lowest specific gravity. It absorbs a large amount of fillers and oils and has little effect on properties. Therefore, it is possible to produce a rubber compound which is inexpensive.
