FSA to Host Webinar, “How to Select the Correct Gasket”
One of the most critical yet overlooked aspects to successful flange sealing is selecting the correct gasket. Due to an aging workforce and lack of shared sealing knowledge, more focus is needed to be put on selecting the proper gasket. Industry records show that 1 in every 5 gasket failures indicates improper gasket style or material was used. The Fluid Sealing Association (FSA) is a manufacturer-based resource whose charter is educating industry including the correct selection of gasketing to ensure a safe and sound connection.
The FSA is proud to offer “How to Select the Correct Gasket” as a 1.5 hour webinar that will give vital information including the following subjects:
- Forces acting on a bolted connection
- Types of gaskets by categories (metallic, semi metallic, and non-metallic)
- Selection of gasket for applications
o Gasket related considerations
o Flange related considerations
o Fastener considerations
o Joint considerations
