Metallic Gaskets

Nov. 15, 2002
Metallic gaskets are used for pressure and temperature extremes that cannot be handled by nonmetallic gaskets.

Metallic gaskets are used for pressure and temperature extremes that cannot be handled by nonmetallic gaskets. If the product of operating pressure in psi times operating temperature in °F exceeds 250,000, metallic gaskets should be used. Metallic gaskets are also used for temperatures below -65°F, above 850°F, and for pressures above 1,200 psi. Other conditions calling for metallic gaskets include vacuum below 10-4 torr and radiation above 108 rad.
