Gasket Seating Stress

Gasket Seating Stress

Gasket Seating Stress

Please help me to find out the following information relating to the Dome Gaskets (SPIRAL WOUND GASKET WITH TEFLON FILLER TYPE WITHOUT INNER RING)

• The maximum assembly gasket stress (Sgmax)
• The minimum gasket seating stress (Sgmin-S)
• The minimum gasket operating stress (Sgmin-O).
• The gasket relaxation fraction (g)
• Gasket Sealing Inner Diameter 1226 MM
• Gasket Sealing Outer Diameter 1266 MM
. Gasket Centering ring O.D = 1305 MM
. Sealing Thickness = 4.5MM

I look forward to hearing from you

RE: Gasket Seating Stress

This information should be sought from the Gasket Manufacturer since it is Manufacturer dependent.

RE: Gasket Seating Stress

Dear DSB123, is there any calculation methods/formulas to find out those?

RE: Gasket Seating Stress

Hi nazem,
Spiral wound gaskets are Manufacturer specific and the seating stresses are particular to the Manufacturer. You need to get the information from them.
