3000 psi metal seal

3000 psi metal seal

RE: 3000 psi metal seal


From Your photos, the seal looks like it is made from either (a) sintered/compacted iron/graphite/copper mix; or (b) is a pure sintered/compacted graphite material... and was intended for high temp service.

It would pay to have the material analyzed by a lab. There might be a material standard IF the material can be verified.

As far as a industry standard for the shape and material... I doubt it. HOWEVER... The following specs MIGHT actually provide a clue after-all.

SAE AIR1077 Metallic Seal Rings for High Temperature Reciprocating Hydraulic Service

MIL-M-24130 and /1, /2 and /3 METALLIC SEAL RINGS, NON-INTEGRAL GENERAL SPECIFICATION FOR [spec is distribution controlled by Navy]

All metallic seals/gaskets I found were hollow and crushed/distorted on installation.
