  • How Gaskets Are Used in Automotive Engines

    How Gaskets Are Used in Automotive Engines0

    Gaskets are an important part of nearly all automotive engines. Consisting of a flat, precut piece of material, they are designed to seal mating surfaces. From cars and trucks to vans and tractor-trailers, most automotive engines have gaskets. There are typically several types of gaskets in a typical automotive engine, some of which include the

    5 Fun Facts About Gaskets0

    Gaskets are one of the most common types of mechanical seals. You can find them in automotive engines, air conditioning (AC) systems, fuel tanks and manufacturing machines. Like all mechanical seals, gaskets are designed to protect against leaks. They create a sealed environment while trapping pressurized gases, air or liquids. This post reveals fun facts

    Overview of Splice Types for Vulcanized Gaskets0

    Vulcanization is a common manufacturing process used to create gaskets. It involves the use of heat, adhesive and pressure to bond two ends of rubber together. The combination of these three elements essentially fuses the rubber together, thereby forming a single and solid gasket. Vulcanized gaskets, however, are available in different splice types. Below are

    Gasket Materials: What Are Gaskets Made Of?0

    Gaskets play an important role in the function of many machines. From lathes and milling machines to forklifts and automobiles, they allow for a leak-proof mating surface between two or more parts. Machines, of course, often contain fluids or gases. To prevent these fluids or gases from escaping, gaskets are used. While all gaskets are

    What Is a Flange Gasket?0

    When shopping for gaskets, you may come across flange gaskets. They are one of the most common types of gaskets. Flange gaskets work like other gaskets by sealing the surface on which they are used. They are known as “flange gaskets,” however, because they are intended for use on a flanged surface. Overview of Flange

    What Are O-Rings Made Of?0

    Also known as a toric joint, an O-ring is a gasket consisting of a circular, ring-shaped piece of material. Like other gaskets, it’s used to create a seal. When two parts are joined together, they may be fitted with an O-ring to prevent pressurized liquids or gases from leaking. To create an effective seal, though,
