How to Fix Gasket Leaks

Application leaks can be dangerous and expensive, but at the same time preventable. Unforeseen expenses due to lost production, increased maintenance costs and fines can be devastating for a company.

There's nothing worse than being woken up in the middle of the night by a leaking plumbing system...and more often than not, the gaskets are to blame!

Leaks caused by gasket failures can have a number of causes:

> under compression
> overcompression
> uneven compression
> Reuse of gaskets
> chemical attack

Let's take a step back and talk about the mechanics of bolting; applying force through the flange to create a seal. This compresses and densifies the gasket, reduces porosity, creates a sealing barrier at the gasket ID, and prevents fluids from penetrating and degrading the gasket.
