1" Bore, 1.5" Viton Gasket for Closed Loop BHO Extractors
These viton gaskets are a practical purchase for anyone doing essential oil extractions with butane as they offer an incredibly high resistance to oils, fuels, lubricants and most mineral acids. These gaskets meet today's sanitary standards for the sanitary industry.
Viton offers an exceptionally high resistance to compression set, even at high temperatures. It is known to have an exceptionally good resistance to oxidation, sun and weather, along with an excellent resistance to fungus and mold.
Viton is capable of withstanding high temperatures while retaining its good mechanical properties, and is better at it than most other elastomers. The oil and chemical resistance are virtually unaffected by elevated temperatures, and the compounds remain relatively elastic indefinitely up to temperatures of 400° F (204° C).
The high temperature limits are as follows:
- 3,000 hours @ 450° F (232° C)
- 1,000 hours @ 500° F (260° C)
- 240 hours @ 550° F (288° C)
- 48 hours @ 600° F (316° C)
Viton is usually serviceable in applications down to between 0° F and -10° F (-18° C to -23° C). It has also been proven to be satisfactory for static seals under conditions approaching absolute zero temperatures.
