Application area, metal-to-metal joints
BIRKOSIT Dichtungskitt® has been used for 50 years on Siemens turbines (product development 1952 with Siemens). Without the additional sealing of individual pressure areas using BIRKOSIT Dichtungskitt® the production imprecisions or the distortion under loads are no longer evened out, which means that the turbine areas in the individual pressure areas become permeable under pressure.
This means the turbine loses power, and can even lead to unplanned reconditioning.
BIRKOSIT Dichtungskitt® is formulated to be practically inert in its standard applications in steam and gas turbines. It is, therefore, resistant to exposure to hot air, steam, water, light fuel oils and lubricants. By implication, it should be resistant to crude oil and natural gas.
