General notes:

  • Dimensions are in millimeters unless otherwise indicated.
  • Image shows a Spiral Wound gasket with Inner - and Outer ring.
  • d1 = Inside diameter when Inner ring is used.
  • d2 = Inside diameter sealing element when no Inner ring is used.
  • d3 = Outside diameter of sealing element.
  • d4 = Outside diameter of Outer ring.
  • Thickness of inner and outer ring: 2.97 mm - 3.33 mm.
  • Thickness sealing element: 4.45 mm.
  • Tolerance Outside diameter for NPS 1/2 through NPS 8 is ± 0.8 mm; for NPS 10 trough NPS 24 tolerance is + 1.5 mm - 0.8 mm.
  • ASME B16.20 does not covers class 400 flanges up to NPS 3 and class 900 flanges up to NPS 2½.
  • There are no class 400 flanges NPS 1/2 thru NPS 3 (use Class 600), class 900 flanges NPS 1/2 thru NPS 2½ (use Class 1500), or class 2500 flanges NPS 14 or larger.
  • The inner ring inside diameters shown for NPS 1¼ thru 2½ in class 1500 and 2500 will produce inner ring widths of 0.12 inches, a practical minimum for production purposes.
  • ASME B16.20 which covers spiral wound gaskets requires the use of solid metal inner rings in: Pressure Class 900, nominal pipe sizes 24 and larger, Pressure Class 1500 from nominal pipe sizes 12 and larger, Pressure Class 2500 from nominal pipe sizes 4 and larger and all PTFE filled gaskets.
