Semi-Metallic gaskets are designed to feature soft, pliable sealing materials - which enhance the tightness of the assembly with lower overall load requirements when compared to full metallic gaskets.  They are most popular due to this configuration, and are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes.  They can typically be fabricated of any metal which is available in thin strip or sheet, and which can be welded. Therefore, they can be used against virtually any corrosive medium dependent upon the choice of the metal and filler material.
Lamons Style W Style W gaskets are SpiraSeal® windings only. No inner or outer ring is utilized. Used in a variety of different applications, they may be furnished in many different sizes and thicknesses.
WR Style WR gaskets consist of a spiral wound sealing component with a solid metal outer guide ring.
Style WRI is identical to style WR, with the addition of an inner ring. The inner ring also serves several functions. Primarily, it provides radial support for the gasket on the ID to help prevent the occurrences of buckling or imploding.
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 would.
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.
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 LP1 inner ring. This dual sealing design engages the raised face completely from the OD to the bore.
Lamons 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 or bore intrusion - to address this stance, Lamons offers Style WR-AB. By creating a space for expansion between the OD 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.
Lamons Style WRI-HF This gasket was develop for Hydrofluoric (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 HF acid detecting paint if desired.
Lamons Style WRI-RJ The style WRI-RJ gasket is identical to a Style WRI 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.
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.
Style H gaskets are for use on boiler hand hole and tubecap assemblies. They are available in round, square, rectangular, diamond, obround, oval and pear shapes. Lamons has tooling available for manufacturing most of the standard handhold and tubecap sizes of the various boiler manufacturers.
Lamons Style MW, MWC & MWI These gaskets are available in round, obround, and oval shapes and are used for standard manhole cover plates. When spiral wound manhole gaskets with a straight side are required, it is necessary that some curvature be allowable, given to the fact that spiral wound gaskets are wrapped under tension and therefore tend to buckle inward when the gaskets are removed from the winding mandrel.
Lamons Style L The spiral wound components of Style L are identical to those of Style W and in addition have a wire loop welded to the outer periphery of the gasket, sized so as to fit over diametrically opposite bolts, for proper centering of the spiral wound component on the gasket seating surface.
Lamons Style WP & WRP These gaskets are similar to Style W and Style WR, with the addition of pass partitions for use with shell and tube heat exchangers. Partitions are normally supplied as doublejacketed construction, made of the same material as the spiral wound component. The partition strips can be soft soldered, tack welded or silver soldered to the spiral wound component. The double-jacketed partition strips are normally slightly thinner than the spiral wound component in order to minimize the bolt loading required to properly seat the gasket.
