Munsch and Co/PTM are a prominent supplier and manufacturer of gaskets, which are used widely in industries throughout the UK, Europe and worldwide.
A gasket is a compressible material that is used to create a seal between two stationary faces such as pipe flanges.
You will need a gasket to create a seal, as it is extremely difficult to achieve completely smooth faces on metalwork. Also, potential erosion and corrosion of the faces over time could cause the joint to fail without a gasket.
To be effective a gasket must be subject to sufficient force when being seated for it to compress and make the seal. Sufficient pressure must be applied and maintained once seated, to retain the seal.
Yes, it is important that the chosen material for the gasket is suitable for the media it is coming into contact with, and that it can handle the temperature and pressure.
We have been manufacturing gaskets for over 50 years, in a wide range of materials, from EPDM for water applications, to Gylon® for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
Working together with you to find the most suitable solution from our wide range of materials, means you will get the correct material for the application. Sometimes cost is the overriding concern, but more often than not, it’s the longevity of the seal, which is why we only supply gaskets manufactured from quality materials.
With over 100 years combined experience, our team are knowledgeable in all styles of gaskets, which means we can analyse, advise, and recommend a solution to even the most complicated gasketing problem.
Our manufacturing capabilities are extensive in our 11,000 square foot gasket shop. We have 10 presses available ranging from 20 to 80 tonnes, and with over 15,000 cutting formes to choose from, many standard sizes and styles are available without incurring tooling costs which can save you money.
For bespoke designs we now utilise our 2 axis CNC cutters. These allow us to produce complex designs in a variety of materials without the need for, sometimes expensive tooling, plus with the cut being done with a knife there are no laser scorch marks.
For thicker gauges, we cut using a 55000 psi water jet cutter. This allows us to cut up to 100mm thick materials, without edge deformation, plus with the jet being only 1mm diameter there is very little wastage between cuts, meaning it saves you money.
For large gaskets (Bigger than either roll or sheet size) we can supply them in pieces with dovetail joints pre-cut.
You can e-mail your designs to us or we can input them directly from your drawings.
