Abstract:

A silver impregnated metal-fiber composite seal was received for testing as a fuel seal in the temperature range of -100 F to 1200 F. The seal was a flat circular gasket 8 14 in. in diameter and .031 in. thick. Sealing properties at room temperature were determined by installing the seal between the faying surfaces of a steel test tank and applying internal pressres from 5 to 30 psi. An air tight seal at room temperature could not be obtained with this composite fiber-metal seal. Author
