How to identify spiral wound gasket identification?
The solid outer edge colour indicates the metal winding used and the vertical stripes indicate the filler used
- Dimensions are in millimeters unless otherwise indicated.
- The image shows a Spiral Wound gasket with Inner – and Outer rings.
- d1 = Inside diameter when Inner ring is used.
- d2 = Inside diameter sealing element when no Inner ring is used.
- d3 = Outside diameter of sealing element.
- d4 = Outside diameter of Outer ring.
- The thickness of the inner and outer ring: 2.97 mm – 3.33 mm.
- Thickness sealing element: 4.45 mm.
- Tolerance Outside diameter for NPS 1/2 through NPS 8 is ± 0.8 mm; for NPS 10 trough NPS 24 tolerance is + 1.5 mm – 0.8 mm.
- ASME B16.20 does not cover class 400 flanges up to NPS 3 and class 900 flanges up to NPS 2½.
- There is no class 400 flanges NPS 1/2 thru NPS 3 (use Class 600), class 900 flanges NPS 1/2 thru NPS 2½ (use Class 1500), or class 2500 flanges NPS 14 or larger.
- The inner ring inside diameters shown for NPS 1¼ thru 2½ in class 1500 and 2500 will produce inner ring widths of 0.12 inches, a practical minimum for production purposes.
- ASME B16.20 which covers spiral wound gaskets requires the use of solid metal inner rings in Pressure Class 900, nominal pipe sizes 24 and larger, Pressure Class 1500 from nominal pipe sizes 12 and larger, Pressure Class 2500 from nominal pipe sizes 4 and larger, and all PTFE filled gaskets.
