Metal winding gasket installation method

Feb 26, 2019

In some devices, metal wound gaskets are used to achieve a better sealing effect.

1. The procedure must first confirm that the steel strip, core and graphite meet the requirements of the wound pad material, specifications and quality. Check that the top wheel meets the requirements and that the tailstock position is appropriate and adjust.

2. After confirming everything, place the core into the mandrel in the mold. Pull the metal washer through the bolt and insert the gap into the gap. Operate the cylinder valve so that the top wheel can withstand the core. Operate the foot switch and wrap the inner ring three times; then pull out the PTFE tape or graphite tape and place it in the desired size.

Finally, cut off the PTFE or graphite, wrap the empty strip three times to the desired outer diameter, cut the strip, and then open one or two turns. Weld the tail of the steel strip and operate the manual valve to return to the top wheel. Shake the right wheel away from the right mold, take out the product, knock out the core, and firmly weld the inner ring of the product to complete the operation.

3. After the installation is complete, check all items are present, then remove the handwheel handle, steel frame and cylinder during transportation. Place the machine in a stable position, open the air supply, operate the cylinder valve, check whether the movement of the shaft is flexible, operate the foot switch, and let the machine run to see if there is any abnormality.
