The Moorside ring joint gaskets available from James Walker Australia are precision manufactured metal ring joints used in high pressure oil field applications and on refining and processing plants.

Manufactured in the UK, the Moorside ring joint gaskets are available in three different joint types: 

  • R type (oval and octagonal) solid sections to fit standard ring joint flanges with trapezoidal grooves.
  • Types RX and BX with complex bevelled edge sections for wellhead pressures exceeding 69MPa/690bar.
  • Lens sections, convex, wedge, double cone, and weld-ring types.
The following are some of the specifications of these ring joint gaskets:

  • To API 6A (oilfield use) standard.
  • To ASME B16.20 (general use) standard.
  • To fit ASME, BS and DIN flanges.
Ancillary components of the Moorside ring joint gaskets include:

  • PTFE inner rings - for sitting in the cavity between flange bore and ring joint to reduce turbulence and flange erosion.
  • Flange protectors - for installation around the external diameter of flange joint to minimise ingress of moisture and dirt.
  • Rubber coated ring joints - soft iron ring joint gaskets encapsulated in nitrile rubber for testing wellhead assemblies and valves. Rings can be reused and do not damage flange grooves.
