Short Article on Types of Gasket

Different Types of Gasket

three gasket types typically used in pipe flanges for process plant applications:

Sheet Gaskets

Sheet gaskets are made from a variety of non-metallic materials, such as rubber, neoprene, cork, or Teflon. They are typically used in low-pressure, low-temperature applications. Sheet gaskets are relatively inexpensive and easy to install, but they can be susceptible to creep and deformation, which can lead to leakage.

Spiral Wound Gaskets

Spiral wound gaskets are a type of composite gasket that consists of a metal spiral wound between layers of a non-metallic filler material, such as graphite or asbestos. They are typically used in high-pressure, high-temperature applications. Spiral wound gaskets are more resilient than sheet gaskets and are less susceptible to creep and deformation.

Solid Metal Ring Gaskets

Solid metal ring gaskets are made from a solid ring of metal, such as steel, stainless steel, or aluminum. They are typically used in high-pressure, high-temperature applications where the highest level of reliability is required. Solid metal ring gaskets are the most expensive type of gasket, but they are also the most durable.

Here is a table summarizing the key characteristics of each type of gasket:
