IX Gaskets


IX gaskets, also known as Integral Extension (IX) gaskets, or IX Seal are exclusively designed to suit the seal requirement in Compact Flanged Connections. These gaskets are widely used in industries such as oil and gas, petrochemical, and power generation, where reliable sealing is crucial and provide exceptional sealing performance in high-pressure and high-temperature applications.

At Asian Sealing Pvt. Ltd., we are proud to be a trusted high-quality IX gasket manufacturer and exporter. Our IX gaskets are manufactured using premium materials and advanced production techniques to ensure optimal performance and durability.

Key Features and Benefits:

IX Gaskets are engineered to provide exceptional performance and reliability in demanding industrial environments. These gaskets offer a range of key features that make them a preferred choice for critical sealing applications. Here are some of the main features and benefits of IX Gaskets:

  • High-Pressure Resistance: IX Gaskets are designed to withstand high-pressure environments, making them ideal for applications where reliable sealing under extreme conditions is crucial. Their robust construction ensures they can effectively handle substantial pressure differentials, preventing leakage and maintaining system integrity.
  • Excellent Sealing Performance: With their advanced sealing design, IX Gaskets provide superior sealing performance. They create a tight and reliable seal between flange surfaces, minimizing the risk of leakage even in challenging operating conditions. This feature is vital in industries where leakage can lead to safety hazards, environmental concerns, or costly production downtime.
  • Chemical Compatibility: IX Gaskets are engineered to offer excellent chemical compatibility, making them suitable for a wide range of applications involving aggressive fluids or chemicals. They are resistant to corrosion and can withstand exposure to various chemicals, ensuring long-lasting performance and preventing damage to the sealing system.
  • Reduced Leakage: By providing reliable sealing, IX Gaskets help reduce or eliminate leakage issues in industrial processes. This not only prevents product loss but also ensures the integrity of the overall system. The reduced risk of leakage translates to improved safety, enhanced operational efficiency, and cost savings.
  • Enhanced Equipment Performance: The high-quality sealing provided by IX Gaskets contributes to improved equipment performance. By preventing leaks, these gaskets help maintain optimal operating conditions, such as pressure and temperature, leading to enhanced performance and efficiency of industrial equipment and processes.
  • Prolonged Service Life: IX Gaskets are built to withstand demanding conditions and offer exceptional durability. Their robust construction and resistance to pressure, temperature, and chemicals contribute to prolonged service life. By minimizing the need for frequent gasket replacement, IX Gaskets reduce maintenance costs and downtime, ensuring uninterrupted operation of industrial systems.

How IX Ring Seal Works ?

  • The functioning of the IX Seal Ring involves the conversion of axial forces into radial sealing force through the taper of the metal seal ring.
  • As the pre-load increases, the bevel closes and establishes face-to-face contact on the outer wedge. This facilitates the transfer of compressive forces between the flange faces at the heel, utilizing a significant portion of the bolt pre-load.
  • The IX Ring Seal comprises two distinct seals. The first seal is formed by applying seal seating stress at the flange heel. Alongside, the flange remains in contact around its outer circumference with the flange faces, ensuring continuous contact across various load levels. The primary seal is provided by the IX Seal Ring itself. The seal ring force is generated by the elastic energy stored in the stressed seal ring. In the event of any potential leakage at the heel, internal pressure acts on the seal ring, intensifying its sealing action.
  • The design of the IX Ring Seal is specifically engineered to protect against oxygen exposure and other corrosive agents. This proactive measure effectively prevents corrosion of the flange faces, the stressed length of the bolts, as well as the seal ring.
Product Details
  • The dimensions of IX seal are as per NORSOK L005 and material qualification is as per NORSOK M650 and NORSOK M630
  • IX seal comes with a PTFE/XYLON coating, the color of the coating identifies the material used to make the IX seal
  • IX seal numbers are from IX 15 to IX 1200
  • Other machined components are as seen in the picture, which is machined as per the customer provided drawings, this normally comes with a Silver Coating which is done in-house


IX gaskets offer several advantages, including high-pressure sealing capabilities, resistance to corrosion and chemicals, excellent temperature resistance, and compatibility with various flange types and sizes. They also provide a reliable and long-lasting sealing solution for critical applications.

When selecting an IX gasket, consider factors such as operating pressure, temperature, fluid compatibility, and flange specifications. It is essential to consult with a knowledgeable IX gasket supplier or refer to industry standards to ensure the proper selection that meets your specific application requirements.

IX gaskets are typically designed for single-use applications. Once they have been compressed and used, it is recommended to replace them with new gaskets during reassembly.
