Spiral-Max 304 Stainless Steel Spiral Wound Boiler Gaskets
Spiral Max Gaskets 304 SS Elliptical Gaskets are designed to achieve an effective seal under the most demanding operating conditions. One of the best all-around seals, the SPIRAL-MAX Gasket offers a cost-effective solution that has the ability to withstand high temperature and pressure fluctuations. 3 plies of metal and filler in the spiral create a barrier that reduces the possibility of leaks. The Spiral-Max profile is engineered to provide recovery in applications where the load on the gasket may vary due to major temperature fluctuations. While there is not a published standard for the construction of hand-hole and manhole spiral wound gaskets, the industry often categorizes them into pressure ratings 0-999 PSI and greater than 1,000 PSI. The difference between these two designations is the thickness of the sealing composite. A thicker sealing composite results in a lower content of containment strip. Inversely, a thinner sealing composite allows for an increased content of containment strip. The higher the alloy content, the more pressure the gasket can withstand.
