Lamons is one of the largest gasket, bolt and hose assembly manufacturers in the world. They are committed to quality and local service. Their major manufacturing facilities are in Houston and Denver, U.S. with additional supporting manufacturing branch sites throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and the Far East. We also utilize many licensees and distributors strategically located to provide customers the widest selection of gasket materials, fasteners and hose products readily available.
Lamons manufactures and supplies a large variety of ring type joint gaskets. Lamons Ring Type Joint (RTJ) standard size gaskets are manufactured in accordance to API 6A, API 17D and ASME B16.20 specifications. Our facilities all over the world stock a wide range of sizes and materials ready for immediate shipment, from R11 to R105. Customers can also rely on our extensive inventory of raw materials, allowing for best-in-class delivery of special sizes and shapes. Specialty rings and industrial machined components can be rapidly produced to exact dimensions and to customer specifications. Lamons stocks the most extensive inventory of centrifugal castings, forgings and plates in the industry, allowing us to respond quickly to most customer needs. From small machined components to rings over 6 feet (1800mm), Lamons has the capacity and turning capability to deliver most configurations of heavy cross-sectioned components.
Semi-Metallic gaskets are designed to feature soft, pliable sealing materials which enhance the tightness of the assembly with lower overall load requirements when compared to full metallic gaskets. They are very popular due to this configuration, and options are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes. They can typically be fabricated from any metal which is available in thin strip or sheet, and which can be welded. Therefore, these gaskets can be used against virtually any corrosive medium dependent upon the choice of the metal and filler/facing material. Additionally, they can be used over the complete temperature range from cryogenic to approximately 2000°F (1093°C). Semi-metallic gaskets can generally be used in pressures ranging from vacuum to those seen in ASME B16.5 standard 2500 pressure class flange ratings. They are resilient and, therefore, can compensate somewhat for flange movement which may occur due to temperature gradients, variations of pressure and vibration.
A “soft gasket” material is a term used when referring to a gasket material that is easily compressed under a low bolt load. This term has been used to distinguish the difference from a metallic gasket. A soft gasket material can be selected from a large variety of elastomers, compressed non-asbestos, PTFE, flexible graphite and high temperature sheet products. Soft gaskets are used in a wide range of applications such as for pipe flanges, heat exchangers, compressors and bonnet valves, to name just a few. Soft gasket material can be purchased in a variety of cut shapes or be provided in sheet or rolls.
Sealing Isolation Gaskets
Lamons offers a complete line of engineered sealing solutions with the IsoTek™ product line dedicated to sealing and flange isolation. The Isotek line of products can be tailored to meet and exceed regular and critical service protection solutions.
The ISOGUARD™ sealing/isolating gasket system is designed for general applications where electrical flange isolation and corrosion control are required on pipes containing water/wastewater, gas, natural gas, oil and other hydrocarbon-based medias up to 392F and ANSI 1500# pressure class service.
The DEFENDER™ sealing/isolating gasket system is designed for critical/ extreme applications. Manufactured with a 316 stainless steel core retainer and laminated on both sides with high strength laminates, the DEFENDER™ gasket is resistant to deforming under load and is used when electrical isolation and corrosion control are required on pipes containing gas, natural gas, oil and other hydrocarbon-based medias up to 392ºF (200ºC).
The DEFENDER FS™ sealing/isolating gasket is designed to withstand the rigorous API standard 6FB (Third Edition) test and therefore provides a solution for those who want to electrically isolate their flange while also requiring protection against the introduction of fire in and around the flange.
Standard Designs - Lamons standard fasteners are available in a wide range of alloys and sizes. This line of products is considered to represent the highest quality standard in the industrial market. Our large inventory of fasteners, stud bolts, threaded bar stock and related hardware allows the ability to quickly respond to any customer requirement or demand. Specialty Designs - Lamons maintains a high capacity of programmable mill and lathe capability for custom machine work on most specialty components. As a leading manufacturer of custom machined products for the refining, petrochemical and industrial markets, Lamons recognizes the quality and service levels these industries require. We have over 30 state of the art CNC machines operated by programmers and machinists to deliver high quality machined components with the quickest response time in the industry. From a sample, drawing or CAD file, Lamons can program and manufacture/machine custom parts and fasteners with the highest precision and repeatability within .0005 inches (.0127 mm).
