Flange Gasket Division News

ESA members voted to move forward for year 2 to develop generic friction factors for a group of gasket materials from different manufacturers by using a repeatable test method.

Friction factor project status:

  • EN1591-1 requires friction factor for calculation
  • EN13555 includes only an informative annex with a proposed test procedure
  • Currently no reliable friction factors available
  • Companies selling gasket products will need to be able to quote ‘Friction Factors’ for their products
