How to calculate the thickness of a ring spacer?
As a rule of thumb the following formula can be used to calculate the thickness in millimeters: Pressure (barg) multiply by diameter (inches) divided by 10. Pressure: the highest pressure that the system can achieve. Diameter: the size of the spacer in inches. Example: 8 x 12 / 10 – thickness of spacer = 9.6 mm.
