Gaskets and their use

Gaskets and their use

Gaskets are a vital part of industrial life. Used to fill the gap between two surfaces, helping to prevent leaks and vibrations, gaskets come in a variety of different types and materials. In this post, we take a look at some of the most common gaskets and where they are primarily found/used. Gasket Types by… Continue reading Gaskets and their use

Gaskets and Seals – what is the difference

Gaskets and Seals – what is the difference?

Gaskets and seals, on the surface, may look like they provide very similar functions, and in many ways, they do.  However, it is important to note that these two pieces of equipment are different, and understanding these differences can be key in choosing the right one for your application.  But, what is the difference between a… Continue reading Gaskets and Seals – what is the difference?

Spiral wound gasket and its controlled density

The Controlled Density of Spiral Wound Gaskets

Spiral wound gaskets and their controlled density should not be taken lightly. It is what helps to control and manage sealability and compression at every level.  Ultimately the controlled density process helps ensure and achieve filler density at the most optimum level in all windings to achieve a seal that can be exposed to minimum compressive loads,… Continue reading The Controlled Density of Spiral Wound Gaskets

O ring material

Selecting the most suitable O Ring material

O rings can come in many different material forms, necessary for a range of applications.  For all, all provide the same service, and (hopefully) the same high-level of a seal, it is essential to know about the different materials used as well as what materials are suitable for what applications and why.  Materials can range from the most… Continue reading Selecting the most suitable O Ring material
