Gaskets can be compressed between flanges to specified pressures while providing room for the flange assembly to flex within deflection limits. The springs can be torqued 50 to 70% of their dome height. Controlled spring loading and flexibility help facilitate the installation and maintenance of piping in the chemical and oil industries.
