Cover plate gaskets
Cover plate gaskets are used as self-sealing gaskets, meaning that the sealing force does not come from bolts but from the internal pressure. Therefore bolts with a smaller cross-section can be selected. The entire connection is more compact. The following illustration shows the design principle.
At high pressures or with reworked covers, caps should be provided, so that the graphite does not extrude into the gap between the housing and the cover plate. Compressed caps are made of 0.4 mm thick stainless steel sheet metal 1.4541. At very high pressures solid, lathed caps are usual.
