Universal interam gaskets, also known as combustor gasket wraps, are ideal for seating your uncanned catalytic combustor. Interam is a soft, lightweight, and flexible material that serves as a protective barrier to your combustor. When exposed to extremely high temperatures, the gasket swells and releases chemically bound water particles that have been integrated into the interam wrap. This process keeps the outer surface of your combustor cool and reduces heat transfer, in turn protecting your wood burning application from overheating.
Words of caution:
Our 1/16 inch thick catalytic combustor interam gasket is available by the foot in 2 or 3 inch widths. To obtain the correct amount needed, simply measure the outside diameter of your combustor. Keep in mind that these wraps need to fit snugly around the combustor, so if the outside diameter measures beyond the increment of 12 inches per foot, you will need the additional material. For example, a 27 inch outside diameter would require 3 feet of gasket.
