is a mechanical gasket
in the shape of doughnut-shaped ring. O-Rings are ideal for placement in a groove and compression during assembly between two or more parts. It is a loop of elastomer with a round cross-section which creates a seal at the interface. They are one of the most common seals in machine design today.

There are various different ways to determine the functionality of a gasket. However, compression testing is one of the most common ways to see how heavy a load a gasket can take. Therefore, we have put together a few reasons for the importance of 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 gasket’s function is to interpose a semi-plastic material between the flange facings, the material which, through deformation under load seals the minute surface irregularities to prevent leakage of the fluid. Generally, gaskets can be divided into three main categories: Non-metallic gaskets, Semi-metallic gaskets and Metallic gaskets.

The majority of manufacturing sectors, including the automotive, aerospace, electronics, appliance and military industries, utilize gaskets in their production methods. Made of deformable material, a gasket is a sealing device usually designed in the form of a ring or sheet. They create a pressure-tight seam between multiple stationary components, relying on a compression seal to prevent unwanted gas or liquid emissions. Often times, these seals are intended to be resistant to pressure, temperature fluctuations and in some instances, electrical or electromagnetic forces. A gasket uses compression, so it is generally more malleable than the components it joins and is able to conform to the shape of the harder surfaces between which it is placed.

Within different industries, there are plenty of different types of hoses, all of which have various purposes. There isn’t really such thing as “the best hose”, only a hose that can do its job and do it right. Bryan Hose has possibly every hose you could require to perform your job in the most efficient way possible. We will discuss the different types of industrial hoses, as well as the more popular hoses for specific applications.

What is a Gasket?
According to Wikipedia, “A gasket is a mechanical seal which fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, generally to prevent leakage from or into the joined objects while under compression.” Continue reading All About Gaskets
