R - Oval Type
Standard ring joint gasket with oval cross section and designed for flanges with standard ring joint grooves. Available from R11 to R79 & R92.

R - Octagonal
Standard ring joint gasket with octagonal Type cross section and designed for flanges with standard ring joint grooves. Interchangeable with oval section gaskets on modern octagonal grooved flanges. Available from R11 to R105.

RX -Type
An adaptation of the standard R type gasket and designed to fit the same groove design. It is interchangeable with standard R type gaskets. Available from RX20 to RX215.

BX- Type
Specially designed for very high pressures. All BX gaskets incorporate a pressure balance hole to ensure equalization of pressure which may get trapped in the grooves. It is only suited for API BX flanges and grooves. Available from BX150 to BX303.
