Replace Solid gaskets with liquid sealants, ask is HOW?
What are liquid gaskets?
They are generally liquid/paste materials at room temperature. When they are applied on a joint surface they cure to form an elastic membrane or viscous thin film. They keep satisfactory tightness of the jointed portion against oil, water, and air, and prevent leak of them having enough pressure resistance.
Advantages of liquid gaskets
- A small amount provides sufficient sealing.→Reduces gasket material cost.
- Effective even on a surface with relatively low tightening pressure.→ Less load on assembly, easy assembly
- High class machine finish not required→Reduce the process steps and process cost.
- Applicable to any shape or size of flanges.→Reduce time and cost for inventory control.
