Metallic Gaskets for Pipe Flanges Ring-Joint, Spiral-Wound, and Jacketed
|Publication Date:||1 January 2007|
This Standard covers materials, dimensions, tolerances, and markings for metal ring-joint gaskets, spiral-wound metal gaskets, and metal-jacketed gaskets. These gaskets are dimensionally suitable for use with flanges described in reference flange standards ASME B16.5, ASME B16.47, API Specification 6A, and ISO 10423. This Standard covers spiral-wound metal gaskets and metal-jacketed gaskets for use with raised-face and flat-face flanges.
Requirements relating to the product manufacturers' quality system programs are described in Nonmandatory Appendix A.
This Standard states values in both metric and U.S. Customary units. These systems of units are to be regarded separately as standard.
Within the text, the U.S. Customary units are shown in parentheses or in separate tables. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, it is required that each system of units be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems constitutes nonconformance with the Standard.
