High Temprature Tadpole Seals

Our Tadipole gaskets are designed to provide a high temperature thermal seal in industrial laboratory, maximum continuous operating temperature of 1000°F /540°C. Constructed with Type E fiberglass, the bulb may be filled with various constructions of fiberglass or stainless steel in order to achieve the proper design compression.

Additionally, the bed of the tadpole may also to accommodate various door cobstructions. Textiles engineering coupled with our heat treating and coating expertise, allow for a wide variety of constructions in I order to meet unique emvironmental and design constraints.

Core diameter are typically 1/4"-3/4" Both the Core and Bead may be filled with the following optional materials or left hollow :

  • Type 304 Stainless Steel Kitted wire hollow bulb
  • Type 304 Stainless Steel Solid mesh
  • Knitted type E fiberglass rope

In addition, the gasket can be provided with a steel knitted jacket or a coating of either PTFE or Silicone rubber, The bead (Diamensions B) may also be eliminated, Our engineering staff will be happy to assist in meeting all your design needs.
