Installing A Gasket - Keep These In MindInstalling a gasket after you've chosen the right one, should be considered as a one time task and should be done with complete care. Dealing with gasket failure proves to be much costlier than the cost of the gasket.A leaking joint means wasted gas or liquid, and that can have safety and environmental implications. Unplanned downtime obviously brings down the production, hampering output and usually calling in for expensive overtime working to cover up for the shortfall. Then there’s the actual time and effort involved in opening up the joint, cleaning the faces and installing a new gasket. Following are a few points to be kept in mind - Check the type, magnificence, length and fabric specification of the gasket before the usage of it. Check with the piping specification to verify that it's miles accurate. Prefer gaskets with non-asbestos materials. Check the gasket for harm, nicks, and so on. Ensure that it's far clean and free from any contaminants earlier than use. Make sure the gasket you chose is suitable for the Temperature, Environment, Media and Pressure.Do Not use Soft gaskets – the ones made from substances like neoprene, graphite, fiber or cork in excessive-strain applications. Use pre-cut tanged reinforced sheet gaskets. Follow the correct bolt tightening procedure. Remove any dust at the threads by wire brushing studs/bolts and nuts to . Ensure that the nuts can run freely down the threads earlier than use. Coat the studs/bolts with a thin layer of an accepted lubricant prior to set up. Wear gloves when handling tanged reinforced gaskets. Do not use a gasket thats old or that has no identification. Old is definitely not reliable and unidentified gasket may appear to fit the flange but this is not a guarantee.Not worthy. Do not cut or deform a gasket to fit a flange. If it doesn’t fit, you've chosen the wrong one.Using a gasket that’s thicker than what the flanges need is a bad pick. It simply fails the purpose of the gasket to take up surface imperfections and misalignment and to handle expansion and contraction. One thumbrule, Do It Right !
