In-house Manufacturing and Production
Quick Supply – in-house manufacturing and production
We use the latest computerized cutting machines to produce both standard and non-standard gaskets in minutes. We have the complete metal gasket manufacturing capabilities to produce spiral wounds, corrugated metal and camprofile designs.
Based on your needs, we can produce every conceivable flange gasket in-house, from PTFE, fibre and graphite to rubber gaskets or metal gaskets. From small series and MRO to big volumes for the OEM market.
The ERRIC sealing system is a heat exchanger protocol that has reported leak-free results. ERRIC stands for Evaluation, Radial Shear, Relaxation, Installation, Certification. ERRIC protocols have been used in tens of thousands of heat exchangers around the world, with operators reporting leak-free results, even in the face of plant emergencies and power outages.
CAD Drawing & File Storage
We provide services that will help you manage and safe keep your drawing library.
Our kitting capabilities allow us to provide the right gasket, bolts/fasteners, eliminate torque misapplication and create time efficiencies. Our kits are also supplied with lubricants and CAD drawings.
Our plant surveys aim to reduce a customer’s Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and increase product performance by ensuring that the most current gasket technology is used.
Turnaround Services & On-Site Trailers
We offer support for and during turnarounds, plant shutdowns, outages and production stops for industrial companies. Whether it is for emergency repairs or planned shutdowns, ERIKS has the management and staff in-house to work alongside plant personnel during these work stoppages.
Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)
A program that allows you to keep working capital at a minimum while having the inventory needed on-hand.
Customer Product & Application Training
We provide multiple levels of customized training available on best practices and emission / reliability.

These protocols have been used in tens of thousands of heat exchangers around the world, with operators reporting leak-free results, even in the face of plant upsets and power outages. The expectation for refinery, petrochemical, and chemical industry attendees who implement these protocols is now leak-free operation with:
- Zero leaks regardless of the number of startups and shutdowns
- Zero leaks during plant upsets
Years of field application of the ERRIC system materials and procedures has shown:
- Tens of thousands of exchangers running LEAK-FREE
- Reduction of maintenance costs
- Longer average cycle runs between service
- Improved “bottom line” financial performance
- Reduction of fines for pipe-flange emissions
- The lowest documented overall emission rates for refineries and chemical plants in North America (Courtesy of Sage Environmental)
ALKY-ONE™ Gasket Featured in Chemical Processing Magazine
Recently, David Clover, ERIKS North America Senior Gasket Product/Application Specialist was published in Chemical Processing Magazine. The article highlights the success one refinery had after installing the ALKY-ONE™ gasket into their HF acid alkylation units. The refinery installed 3,119 ALKY-ONE™ gaskets during the 2015 turnaround. At the startup, all flanges were leak-free; they continue to run leak free to date.

Solution for Sealing at Temperatures Over 1,000°F
Over the years our industry has created innovative and reliable solutions for a wide range of extreme sealing challenges. However, the most glaring hole in solution options has been for that small subset of sealing applications over 1,000⁰F.
To meet these needs, ERIKS Netherlands has conducted a multi-year research and development project. This project culminated in the launch of an improved line of Phlogopite mica-based sealing products for spiral wound gaskets, kammprofile gaskets, and sheet gaskets. These products have superb chemical resistance, proven sealability that surpasses existing solutions, and excellent response to high-temperature thermal cycling up to 1,800⁰F.
