Here is a surefire guide to the design, selection, performance, efficiency, reliability, and testing of all types of "static" seal gaskets. This book shows you how to create and utilize high-performance gaskets for valves, pumps, compressors, pressure vessels, boilers, and many other kinds of equipment. "Gaskets" fully examines both nonmetallic and metallic gaskets, and assesses gasket design relative to the higher temperatures and pressures of today's industrial applications, and to standards set by current environmental regulations.This expert reference presents detailed information on: initial seal creation and stress distribution testing; effective maintenance of the seal; joint and gasket design selection; gasket testing techniques; methods of leakage detection and rating; the latest ASME codes for gasket design and the proposed new ASME gasket constants. Filled with 200 helpful illustrations, this essential engineering tool also includes a wealth of material on gasket fabrication and installation, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) and finite element analysis (FEA) for gaskets, internal combustion engine gaskets, and much more.
