Characteristics & Main Applications
The style RX ring type joint is manufactured in accordance with API 6A and ASME B 16.20, to suite API 6B and ASME/ANSI 16.5 flanges. Style RX ring type joint is a pressure energized adoption of the style R ring type joint. The style RX is designed to fit the modern flat bottom groove, and is interchangeable with the standard style R ring type joint. However, since the style RX is significantly taller than a style R, larger flange make-up distances will result. Style R ring type joints are designed to seal pressure up to 6.250 psi in accordance with ASME/ANSI B 16.5 pressure ratings and up to 5,000 psi in accordance with API 6A pressure ratings. The modified design uses a pressure energized effect which improves the efficiency of the seal as the internal pressure of the system increases. Selected sizes incorporate a pressure passage hole to allow for pressure equilisation each side of the sealing faces.
