SpecialtySpiralWoundGaskets

Inhibitor

Lamons Inhibitor gasket provides corrosion resistance in the most extreme conditions. It combines a HTG filler configuration with highest purity graphite, and a Kammpro inner ring laminated with soft PTFE material. The design of the Inhibitor gasket utilizes the Kammpro inner ring to provide the primary sealing interface. The inner ring material and its covering layer are inert in terms of corrosion through contact with dissimilar materials. This fire safe design incorporates the sealing integrity of highest purity graphite in conjunction with mica on the ID and OD, preventing the entrance of further corrosive conditions to the media.

Style WRI-LC

Style WRI-LC gaskets provide a seal at relatively lower seating stress. This means that our design requires less bolt load to seat, yet still has the recovery like a standard spiral wound. The WRI-LC gasket is typical to 150# and 300# class flanges, where users have a concern with insufficient potential of pre-load. But, the density of the WRI-LC gasket can be varied to meet virtually any requirement. Electronic controls on Lamons' SpiraSeal machines assure high quality precision welding with equal spacing, the correct number of metal plies on the gasket inside periphery, proper ratio of metal to filler, proper number of metal plies on the outside and spot welds on the O.D.

Style WRI-LP

Designed for highly corrosive environments, Style WRI-LP is a Spiral Wound gasket with a conventional outer guide ring and a "Kammpro" style LP-1 inner ring. This dual sealing design engages the raised face completely from the O.D. to the bore. The winding can be constructed with the required metal and soft filler specified by the user. The "Kammpro" inner ring metal can be ordered in any alloy, such as Monel, or in Carbon Steel. A Carbon Steel inner ring can be given a protective PTFE coating for increased chemical resistance. The Kammpro inner ring is faced typically with either 0.020" thick EPTFE or graphite. The WRI-LP has seen wide-spread approvals for HF Acid service, although this design has much further potential. Its main advantages are: no metal contact with the media; chemical resistance; fire safe design; sizing to meet ASME B16.5; available in large diameter and special flanges.

Style WRI-HTG

Style WRI-HTG gaskets combine the corrosion and oxidation resistance of mica with the "sealability" of flexible graphite. The mica material, in conjunction with the metal spirals serves as a barrier between oxidizing process conditions and/or external air and the graphite. While Inconel X-750 is commonly selected as the winding metal, any alloy can be selected. The overall effective rating of the HTG configuration can go to a MAX of 1500°F.

Style WR-AB

Inward buckling of Spiral Wound gaskets is sometimes a concern in industry today. Work is ongoing through various industry committees to improve the standard in this regard. Some end users do not want to use inner rings due to cost - to address this stance, Lamons offers Style WR-AB. By creating a space for expansion between the O.D. of the winding and the outer ring, the buckling along the inside could be reduced. This feature, combined with a reinforced inside circumference, help to further reduce the likelihood of inward buckling after installation.

Style WRI-HF

This gasket was developed for HF acid applications. It consists of a Monel and PTFE winding with a carbon steel centering ring and a PTFE inner ring. The carbon steel outer ring can be coated with special H.F. acid detecting paint if desired. The PTFE inner ring reduces corrosion to the flanges between the bore of the pipe and the I.D. of the spiral wound sealing element.

Style WRI-RJ

The style WRI-RJ gasket is identical to a Style WR in construction features but is specially sized to be used as a replacement gasket for flanges machined to accept oval or octagonal ring joint gaskets. The sealing component is located between the I.D. of the groove machined in the flange and the flange bore. These are intended to be used as replacement parts and are considered a maintenance item. In new construction, where Spiral Wound gaskets are intended to be used, raised face flanges should be utilized.
