Spiral wound gaskets
Spiral wound gaskets are sealing gaskets used to seal two surfaces that experience high pressure or temperature. They are often used in industrial applications, such as oil refineries, power plants, chemical plants, and gas processing facilities. Spiral wound gaskets are made from thin metal strips wound in a spiral, with a filling material strip (usually a flexible material such as graphite or PTFE) placed between the layers of the spiral.
Spiral wound gaskets are designed to withstand high pressures and temperatures, as well as bending and compression stresses. They are also resistant to corrosion and can be used with a wide range of chemicals and fluids. Spiral wound gaskets can be used to seal pipe flanges, heat exchangers, storage tanks, pumps, and other industrial equipment.
There are several types of spiral wound gaskets, including stainless steel gaskets, carbon steel gaskets, nickel alloy gaskets, and titanium gaskets. The choice of material depends on the nature of the application and the specific requirements of the equipment.
Spiral wound gaskets are typically installed using a specific torque to ensure even compression of the layers of the spiral and filling material. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for installing and tightening spiral wound gaskets to ensure effective and reliable sealing.
