The original Flange Skillet™, which has been in use since 1980, self-aligns the gasket and remains within the flange assembly. The neck of the skillet is perforated allowing divers to break off the handle flush with the outside diameter of the flange. This Flange Skillet™ is not suited for compact flanges or other custom flanges that leave no space between the flange faces at final bolt up.
The Flange Skillet™ Half Skillet was originally developed to meet the needs of BX rings and compact flanges. This removable Flange Skillet™ is ideal for gaskets weighing less than 12lbs.
The Flange Skillet™ Gator Skillet was developed to meet the needs of divers looking for a removable device to hold gaskets weighing over 12lbs. This Flange Skillet™ self-aligns the gasket within the ring groove by resting on the bottom bolts. The device rotates around the gasket prior to final bolt-up allowing it to be removed.
