Metal wound gasket is a simple protective gasket

May 22, 2019

    The metal wound gasket is a protective gasket made of a special metal strip combined with several other materials. The structural density of the metal wound gasket can be made according to different locking force requirements, and the inner and outer steel rings are used to control the maximum compression degree, and the surface precision of the flange sealing surface contacting the wound gasket is not high. Metal-wound gaskets are especially suitable for applications where load is uneven, joint force is easy to relax, temperature and pressure change periodically, and there is shock or vibration. The wound gasket is a static seal original for the flange connection of valves, pumps, heat exchangers, towers, manholes, hand holes, etc. It can be used for mechanical placement. Its color is mainly yellow and black. The inner ring is generally black and the outer ring is yellow, indicating that the main component of the inner ring of the metal wound gasket is graphite. The main material of the outer ring is a variety of special metal compounds.

    The application of metal wound gaskets is mainly in machinery that requires long-term continuous pressure or movement because of its very stable performance and good corrosion resistance. Application range of metal wound gaskets: sealing of flanges, valves, pressure vessels, condensers, heat exchangers, towers, manholes, hand holes, etc. in petroleum, chemical, metallurgy, electric power, shipbuilding, machinery and other industries. The structural density of the metal wound gasket can be made according to different locking force requirements, and the inner and outer steel rings are used to control the maximum compression degree, and the surface precision of the flange sealing surface contacting the wound gasket is not high. Metal-wound gaskets are especially suitable for applications where load is uneven, joint force is easy to relax, temperature and pressure change periodically, and there is shock or vibration. The wound gasket is a static seal original for the flange connection of valves, pumps, heat exchangers, towers, manholes, hand holes, etc. Therefore, it can adapt to different working environments, unlike some gaskets. There is no clear requirement for the accuracy of such a gasket, as it is generally versatile and the specifications can be used for a variety of mechanical applications. And its replacement is also very convenient, and will not cause too much operational difficulties.
