Spiral Wound Gasket

Spiral wound gaskets have the ability to recover under the action of fluctuating loads caused by process fluid pressure and temperature changes, flange face temperature variations, flange rotation, boltstress relaxation and creep.

The gasket sealing element consists of a pre-formed metallic windingstrip with layers of a softer, more compressible sealing material whichduring compression, is compressed and flows to fill imperfections in theflange surfaces when the gasket is seated. The metal strip holds thefiller giving the gasket mechanical resistance and resilience.

Spiral wound gasket’s basic sealing element,several layers of specially formed continuous V-shaped metal strip are spirally wound with alternate plies of soft filler strip. The "V" profile allows the gasketto act as a spring and the depth is carefully controlled to bestow the sealingelement with the best compression and recovery characteristics. In order tofurther enhance themechanical and sealing properties of the gasket, it isnormal practice to apply several layers of the metal strip only to the innerand outer diameters.

Controlled winding through machines are carefully monitor and adjustthetension of the winding strips. A uniform density throughout the productis produced. This providesthe spring-like action within the gasket whichenablesit to maintain a seal even when subject to fluctuating compressiveloads.
