What are the risks of spiral wound gaskets with graphite filler in compressor and motor bearing lube oil service? I know API 614 says that for lube oil systems under ANSI class 300: flat, non-asbestos type and, for ANSI class 600: spiral wound with non-asbestos filler, 304 or 316 wingdings and external centering ring are to be used.
