The gasket seal is one of the most common types of seals including 0-ring’s, flat gaskets, compressed fiber, and more. The gasket seal sits between two or more objects surfaces which prevents a leak when fluid is being transferred from one object to the next.
The type of gasket one will need will differ depending on the objects that need to be connected, their shape, the material being transferred between objects, and temperature.
Your gasket(s) may need to be placed if they’re starting to show symptoms of gasket failure. The exact symptoms will depend on the type of gasket that you have, but the most immediate concern is that the gasket is leaking.
Depending on your industry, this could be a few drops of water or oil leaking into waterways. Either way, this is not a problem you want to ignore as given time, faster than you can anticipate, the problem will only get worse.
If your gasket is showing signs of failure, it’s important to take immediate action by having the issue looked at, and a replacement or patch on the way. It’s always better to be proactive about these situations rather than reactive.
