Effective sealing width of metal wound gasket
- Oct 26, 2018 -

Metal wound gaskets are made of steel strips and graphite and the like are wound by a winding machine, but few people know the effective sealing width of the metal wound gasket during use.

     In the bolt-flange-metal wound gasket sealing connection, the effective sealing width of the metal wound gasket is an indispensable characteristic parameter for calculating the bolt load, usually indicated by the symbol b, and its unit is in nlnl. The effective sealing width of the metal wound gasket is related to the basic sealing width of the metal wound gasket (symbol b0; unit is ram). When the size of the metal wound gasket is selected, the width N (in ram) of the contact surface of the metal wound gasket and the basic sealing width b of the metal wound gasket can be determined according to Table 3-2. And then determine the effective sealing width b of the metal wound gasket as follows:

     When b0 ≤ 6.4 mn3., b = b0;

     When bo>6.4 mlTl, 6-2.53~/60.
