BLUE-GARD® Style 3400
Aramid Fibers with an SBR Binder
The BLUE-GARD® Style 3400 is a compressed, non-asbestos gasket made from aramid fibers with an SBR binder. Its excellent sealability can drastically lower emissions levels and reduce waste in water, saturated steam*, and inert gas applications.
- Excellent sealability
- Improved torque retention
- Drastically lowered emissions levels
- Cuts operational costs through reduced waste, maintenance, stocked inventory, fluid loss, and energy consumption
- Aramid fibers, fillers, and an SBR rubber binder
- Grey-black color
- Min. Temperature:
-100°F / -73°C
- Max. Temperature:
700°F / 370°C
- Continuous Max:
400°F / 205°C
- Max Pressure:
1200 PSI / 83 bar
- Maximum PxT 1/16:
350,000 (°F x PSIG) / 12,000 bar x °C
- Maximum PxT 1/8:
250,000 (°F x PSIG) / 8,600 bar x °C
- Saturated steam*
- Inert gases
*This style is not the preferred choice for steam service, but is successful when adequately compressed. Minimum recommended assembly stress = 4,800 psi. Preferred assembly stress = 6,000-10,000 psi. Gasket thickness of 1/16″ strongly preferred. Retorque the bolts/studs prior to pressurizing the assembly. For saturated steam above 150 psig or superheated steam, consult Garlock Engineering.
