The design principle of the KLINGER Spiral-Wound Gaskets
The basic element of every gasket is the wound core. The V-shaped metal strip is spirally wound with the softmaterial filler.
 
To improve the mechanical strength and other sealing characteristics,
some layers at the beginning and at the end are wound without soft
material and spot-welded over the total circumference.
The constant tensile force during the complete winding process permits
a defined, constant thickness of the structure.
 
This gives the gasket recovery forces which provide for a reliable surface load even at fluctuating operating conditions.
In the present 8 versions, the basic element is added by inner and/or outer rings as needed.
