A self-locating sealing assembly in which a compressible sealing member and an encircling retainer ring make an assembly for sealing non-grooved joints. The sealing assembly has special application to a standard type pipe flange having a relatively projected sealing surface. The sealing assembly has clip type locating means which make a peripheral engagement with the projected sealing surface concentrically to locate the sealing assembly and to hold it located while the joint is being closed.
A bolted pipe flanged joint including opposing pipe flanges each having a circle of bolt holes therein and having inwardly of said circle of bolt holes an annular sealing surface, the sealing surface on at least one of said flanges being a longitudinally projected raised flat annular sealing surface terminating in a peripheral shoulder defining the outer periphery of said sealing surface, said peripheral shoulder being spaced radially inwardly of said circle of bolt holes, a sealing assembly comprising a sealing member and a ring in encircling confining ...
