Gaskets are essentially extremely simple components, but they play a crucial role in a multitude of products. And because most of these products are very different, at Gulf Rubber we specialise in designing, manufacturing and supplying custom-made gaskets rather than being purely a gasket supplier. By doing this, we ensure that each industrial gasket that we deliver will do its job perfectly. Read more
Custom Solutions from an Industrial Gasket Supplier
Gaskets are very widely used in industries such as oil and gas, power generation, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, automotive and food processing. The very diversity of these industries means that gasket needs are very varied, and we have built up a lot of experience in successfully meeting the challenges that they present. As a result, you can have total assurance when dealing with us as a gasket supplier in Australia.
Industrial Gasket Use and Functionality
A gasket is simply an elastomeric component that covers the point where two surfaces meet. Its main function is to prevent leaks and, to do this, it must be compressed so that it fills any irregularities and creates a tight and impenetrable seal. Gaskets are also used to protect contents and to prevent moving parts from creating friction when they rub against hard surfaces.
For a perfect outcome, industrial gaskets and seals have to be manufactured from materials that will deform under pressure. Common ones used are Nitrile, Ethylene Propylene (EPDM), Silicone and Neoprene. Some gaskets are manufactured from a mixture of metals and softer materials, so they are extremely durable as well as flexible. When making a gasket, we choose the most suitable material for a particular application based on specific needs. These can include its:
- flexibility, so that it deforms to fill any irregularities in component surfaces and forms a perfect seal that prevents any leaks
- anti-vibration and noise reduction characteristics
- ability to protect moving parts from damage
- resistance to extreme temperatures, pressure and chemicals.
As a result of their many forms and characteristics, industrial gaskets and sealents are used in a variety of equipment such as pumps and electrical equipment, and in door seals. Their adaptability means they’re widely used in many industries such as pharmaceuticals and food processing where high hygiene standards are essential, deep sea operations that depend on reliability and aerospace where precision is crucial.
