Keeping Your Gaskets Safe
Installation is key when it comes to gaskets. They have to be placed in the perfect position in order to seal properly. It’s all about angles, pressure, and bolt tightness. On the subject of bolt tightness, tighter is not always best for gaskets. If the bolts are torqued down too tightly, the gasket can become squeezed out of position, creating a leak. Understanding your boiler is a huge component of keeping your gasket in place and working efficiently. Find the “sweet spot” when it comes to placement and bolt tightness according to your boiler’s manufacturer. Experience in the boiler room itself also helps with this.
