We operate nationally and internationally via direct marketing as well as through a network of distributors and dealers.
The spiral wound gasket depends upon the mechanical characteristics of a “U” shaped metal spiral strip. This makes it particularly suitable for low or fluctuating bolt loads. The sealing strips, or fillers are usually graphite or Teflon but other materials may be chosen from a wide range of materials. For this style to perform properly an inner or outer guide ring may be necessary. This insures maximum recovery of the sealing element.
||This style has many variations and can be made of many different metals with and without filler and may have an inner ring, outer ring, or both depending on application. |
