There are various different ways to determine the functionality of a gasket, but compression testing is one of the most common ways to see how heavy a load a gasket can take. Here are just a few reasons to consider compression testing prior to application.
Gaskets play a huge role in our everyday lives. They are the heart of everything from appliances, engines and more. Gaskets work to prevent the escape of air, water, gas and many other fluids in every commercial and industrial situation imaginable.
A hydraulic hose is a high-pressure, synthetic rubber, thermoplastic or Teflon reinforced hose that carries fluid to transmit force within hydraulic machinery. Hydraulic machinery started being used in the early 1940s when engineers discovered that hydraulic systems were more compact, lighter in weight and self-lubricating. Development of hydraulic machinery for military applications sparked after World War II. The development of flexible hydraulic hoses further opened the way for development of a a wide range of new, high-powered machines based on hydraulic technology.
