Mercer Gasket & Shim is a reputable manufacturer specializing in the production of gaskets and shims, with a particular focus on providing high-quality products for heat exchanger manufacturers. With a commitment to excellence, innovation, and customer satisfaction, we offer a wide range of gaskets and shims designed to meet the stringent requirements of heat exchanger applications. Our comprehensive product offerings and exceptional service capabilities make us a preferred choice for customers in various industries.

Heat Exchanger Gaskets:

At Mercer Gasket & Shim, we understand the critical role that gaskets play in ensuring the efficient operation of heat exchangers. We offer an extensive range of gaskets designed to provide reliable sealing, prevent leaks, and withstand extreme temperature and pressure conditions. Our heat exchanger gaskets include:

1. Spiral Wound Gaskets: We specialize in the manufacturing of spiral wound gaskets, which consist of a metal winding strip and a soft filler material. These gaskets are highly resilient, offering excellent sealing performance even under high stress and fluctuating temperatures. They are widely used in heat exchangers across industries such as oil and gas, chemical processing, power generation, and HVAC.

2. Metal Jacketed Gaskets: Mercer Gasket & Shim manufactures metal jacketed gaskets that combine the sealing properties of soft filler materials with the structural integrity of metal jackets. These gaskets provide excellent resistance to high pressures, corrosive environments, and extreme temperatures. They are commonly used in heat exchangers handling aggressive fluids or in applications requiring enhanced mechanical strength.

3. Ring Joint Gaskets: We offer ring joint gaskets that are specifically designed for use in high-pressure and high-temperature environments. These gaskets feature a metallic ring with a trapezoidal or oval cross-section, providing a reliable seal in challenging operating conditions. They are widely used in oil and gas processing facilities, petrochemical plants, and power generation plants.

Heat Exchanger Shims:

In addition to gaskets, Mercer Gasket & Shim provides a range of shims that are crucial for achieving proper alignment, sealing, and thermal performance in heat exchangers. Our heat exchanger shims include:

1. Precision Shims: We manufacture precision shims that are used for precise alignment and leveling in heat exchanger assembly. These shims are available in various thicknesses and materials to accommodate specific application requirements. They ensure accurate and uniform contact between heat exchanger components, optimizing heat transfer efficiency.

Service Capabilities:

Mercer Gasket & Shim is dedicated to providing exceptional service and support to our customers. Our service capabilities include:

1. Custom Design and Engineering: Our team of skilled engineers works closely with customers to understand their unique heat exchanger requirements. We offer custom design and engineering services to develop gaskets and shims that meet specific dimensional, material, and performance criteria.

2. Material Expertise: We have extensive knowledge and experience in working with a wide range of materials suitable for heat exchanger applications. Whether it's selecting the right gasket material for sealing efficiency or choosing the appropriate shim material for thermal conductivity, our experts provide valuable guidance to ensure optimal performance.

3. Prototyping and Testing: Mercer Gasket & Shim offers prototyping services to validate the performance of gaskets and shims in specific heat exchanger applications. We conduct rigorous testing, including pressure testing and thermal cycling, to ensure the reliability and durability of our products.

4. Production Capabilities: With state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, advanced machinery, and stringent quality control processes, we have the capacity to produce gaskets and shims in large volumes while maintaining the highest quality standards. Our efficient production capabilities ensure timely delivery of products to meet customer requirements.

Heat Exchangers

Heat Exchangers

Heat exchangers are pieces of equipment used to transfer heat between two or more fluids. This process usually involves abundant working or utility media such as water or air that rejects or absorbs heat from a more valuable fluid such as crude oil, petrochemical feedstocks, and fluidized products...

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

Shell and Tube Heat Exchangers

A shell and tube heat exchanger (STHE) is a type of heat exchanging device constructed using a large cylindrical enclosure, or shell, that has bundles of perfectly spaced tubing compacted in its interior. Heat exchanging is the transfer of heat from one substance or medium to a similar substance or medium...

Plate Heat Exchanger

Plate Heat Exchanger

A plate heat exchanger (PHE) is a compact type of heat exchanger that utilizes a series of thin metal plates to transfer heat from one fluid to the other. These fluids are typically at different temperatures...



A chiller is a cooling mechanism designed to produce fluids that can lower temperatures by removing heat from the fluid. The type and use of a chiller depends on the required temperature and kind of refrigerant, which can be a liquid or a gas...

Cooling Towers

Cooling Towers

Cooling towers are specialized heat exchangers that remove heat from water mainly by means of latent heat loss from evaporation while coming into contact with an airstream. Aside from evaporative cooling, water is also cooled by sensible heat transfer due to the temperature difference between air and water...
