Origin™ Gasket RC-510 (Rail Car)

Description and Application

Teadit® Origin™ RC 510 is designed specifically for Rail Car Manway Dome Lid applications. It is a restructured hollow glass micro spheres filled PTFE gasket, manufactured utilizing Teadit’s unique Origin™ process technology. This provides excellent torque retention, high sealability and extended gasket life over multiple cycles. It is user friendly, and overcomes the problems of installation and removal associated with gaskets that are molded or produced from sheet materials.

The Origin™ RC510 is most robust, allowing for long-life in service. Rigorous evaluations have yielded results that show performance at a multitude of levels that are better than any rail car gasket in the market. There is nothing else like it.

Leakage test

Objective

To quantify Teadit Origin™ RC510 leakage rate when subjected to 35 psi of pressure and 250ft-lbs of torque, in comparison to other designs used in the industry.

Test Parameters

Pressurize the rig at 35 psi, and at room temperature.
Leak measurements performed after a cycle is completed.

One cycle: 24 hour test, open/close lid each hour for eight hours, close lid and pressurize for next 16 hours.

Conclusion

Teadit Origin™ RC510 presents the best results in leakage rate, averaging 0.003mg/s/m. It outperformed all competitors in tests performed in Teadit’s facility, in Texas/USA, as shown in the adjacent graphs.
