How choosing the correct gasket reduces risks

Health and Safety across any industry are vital, especially so in industrial facilities and settings.  Why?  Because harmful leaks and emissions must be avoided at all costs to avoid serious accidents or injury to your teams and property.  That’s why having the right...

How to tighten your bolts perfectly

How to tighten your bolts and which tools you should use to achieve the perfect seal is not as seamless and straightforward as we would like. Various factors come into play in these situations, such as bolt grade, size, and even application type.  Tightening torques...

Static and Dynamic o rings

A range of factors and application dynamics come into play when choosing a particular type of o ring.  You need to understand the type of seal exert you require, the dimensions, and even compounds.  Due to the nature of an o ring and its overall design, o rings use...

Gasket Sealants

Fortunately, no one gasket suits a range of applications, but rather we have a multitude of gasket sealants available to meet various specifications and requirements.  Ultimately, sealants are used to effectively ensure gasket seals.  Helping to extend a gasket's life...

Types of industrial gasket material

Different industry sectors will use different types of gaskets and different types of gasket materials.   And of course!  Different industrial gasket materials will be much better suited to some industrial processes and applications compared to others.  As different...

Keeping a close eye on the gaskets your applications use

Gaskets are vital elements to any piping system and application that requires creating the perfect seal in order to prevent leaks.  This is the main role of a gasket, to provide a good seal, with some gasket materials sealing better than others in certain...

O Ring Colour Identification

O rings come in various colours, and it's important to understand what these colours indicate as the o rings you choose will affect your overall process application.  Ultimately, different o ring colours are used to help differentiate between different materials. ...

Spiral Wound Gasket Compressibility and Pressure Ratings

In order to form a reliable seal, spiral wound gaskets do require a certain degree of pressure.   The applied pressure allows the gasket to be compressed tightly between the mating surfaces preventing any leaks from occurring.  Factors such as operating temperature...

Elastomeric Compounds

What is elastomer?  Elastomeric compounds are rubber seals produced using natural rubbers or manufactured by the chemicals industry.  Elastomeric sealing compounds consist of between 50-60% rubber; the remainder of the compound consists of fillers,...

Is there such a thing as the right flange gasket?

We cannot stress enough how important gaskets and seals can be. Gaskets are vital for an application's reliability and integrity, and trust us when we say, choosing the right gasket now can help you avoid costly issues in the future.  Taking a closer look at pipe...

Spiral Wound Gaskets

The Spiral Wound Gasket is a very versatile sealing product and has considerable mechanical strength and recovery characteristics. It is of semi-metallic configuration and capable of sealing a wide range of media across a range of Pressure (upto 450 Bar) and Temperature (-250 to +1000C)  applications 

Spiral Wound Gaskets can be used with various flange face configurations and it is this that ultimately determines what style of gasket is required.

Spiral Wound Gasket Styles

The main characteristic of the Spiral Wound Gasket is the sealing element itself which is manufactured by spirally winding a ‘V’ shaped metallic strip and incorporating a soft filler, generally Graphite, PTFE or specially developed High Temperature material and it is this that maintains an effective seal at varying temperatures and pressures.

The Spiral Wound Gasket configuration can also include an outer and inner ring. The Outer ring acts as a locator within the bolt circle and also as a compression stop supporting the sealing element and resisting ‘blow-out’ by preventing over-compression whilst the inner ring acts as a heat shield and corrosion barrier to protect the actual spiral element from media attack.

Material construction generally depends on the application conditions, predominantly media, temperature and pressure values, the most common construction being 316 Stainless Steel Winding and Inner Ring, a Carbon Steel Outer Ring and Graphite Filler Material.

Applications and Benefits of a Spiral Wound Gasket

  • Accommodates a high variation in Temperature Range
  • Accommodates a high range in Pressure
  • Used in Pipelines, Valves, Pumps and Thermal Exchanges

Industries Served

  • Petrochemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Nuclear Energy
  • Oil and Gas
  • Offshore
  • Marine
  • Pump and Valve

Installation

The Gasket Outer Ring fits within the Flange Bolts thus locating the gasket centrally on the raised face. The Outer Ring acts as a compression stop preventing over-compression of the sealing element avoiding potential ‘blow-out’. The Inner Ring acts as a barrier, preventing media attack.

Typical Filler Materials are

GRAPHITE 

  • For use with Hydrocarbons, Oil, many Chemicals  and Steam Service. 
  • 450C > 400 bar 

PTFE 

  • Oxygen Clean Service 
  • Resistant to virtually all Chemicals 
  • 260C > 100 bar 

MICA 

  • High temperature and High Pressure Applications 
  • 1000C >100 bar 
Spiral Wound Drawing
Spiral Wound  Type SOI

SOI

This is the most common type of Spiral Wound Gasket, having both an Inner and Outer Guide Ring. Generally used for Raised Face and Flat Face Flange applications

Spiral Wound Type SO

SO

This gasket is supplied with just an outer ring and may sometimes be used in similar applications to the SOI, though generally not preferred

Spiral Wound Type SI

SI

This style of Spiral Wound incorporates only an Inner Ring and is generally used in Male to Female Flange applications

Spiral Wound Type S

S

Used in Tongue and Groove, male to female and flat to recess flanges. Often seen in Valve bonnet and Exchanger applications.
