As a special sealing element, gaskets play an important role in mechanical adjustment, correction, change of pitch and prevention of loosening. Especially in the adjustment space, the requirements for gaskets are high. If too much oil adheres to the gasket surface, its width and thickness will change. It must be cleaned before use, otherwise the original mechanical parts will not be in place. The data is inconsistent, the throttle can not start running, or there is a failure in operation. So what cleaning methods do we have for gasket parts?
How to clean the gasket? Gasket cleaning methods and equipment
1. Special properties and important role of gaskets
Gasket is made of paper, rubber sheet or copper sheet, placed between two flat surfaces to strengthen the sealing material, and is a sealing element set between static sealing surfaces to prevent fluid leakage. It is usually used to prevent leakage due to pressure, corrosion and natural expansion and contraction of the pipe between two objects. Since the machined surface cannot be perfect, irregularities can be filled with gaskets.
Gaskets are usually made of sheet materials such as paper backing, rubber, silicone rubber, metal, cork, felt, neoprene, nitrile rubber, fiberglass or plastic polymers. Some applications of washers may contain asbestos. Typically used for threaded fasteners that distribute loads, other uses are as spacers, springs, wear pads, pre-display devices and locking devices.
Rubber washers are also used in faucets to cut off the flow of liquids or gases. Rubber or silicon gaskets can also be used to reduce fan vibration. The special properties and important functions of gaskets have many restrictions on how gasket parts can be cleaned.
2. the complexity and diversity of gasket material structure
The complexity and diversity of gasket material structure makes cleaning of gasket parts more difficult. Gaskets can be divided into non-metallic gaskets, metallic gaskets, and combination gaskets according to material and structural characteristics.
The various types can be subdivided into many types, such as rubber gaskets, non-asbestos fiber rubber gaskets, flexible graphite metal composite gaskets, PTFE gaskets, PTFE coated gaskets, waveform gaskets, metal wound gaskets, metal toothed composite gaskets, metal clad gaskets, metal corrugated composite gaskets, other types of metal composite gaskets, metal gaskets, metal flat gaskets, metal corrugated gaskets, metal toothed gaskets, metal ring gaskets, metal lens gaskets, metal O-ring gaskets, metal ring gaskets can be divided into octagonal ring gaskets, elliptical ring gaskets, RX and BX type self-tightening seal ring gaskets.
3. ultrasonic cleaning gaskets are very practical
Gaskets should be cleaned without defects affecting the sealing performance of the joint. The complexity of gasket structure and shape is very suitable for cleaning with ultrasonic cleaning machine, which can achieve good cleaning effect, subvert the traditional cleaning time-consuming and laborious cleaning method, and clean without friction, damage, dead angle and more thoroughly. Ultrasonic cleaning is currently a popular cleaning industry cleaning methods. It is not only a wide range of cleaning, as long as it can be cleaned in water (except for some materials), but also has the freedom of degassing, power, time and temperature can be scheduled. According to the different materials to choose different cleaning functions, is currently an effective way to clean gasket parts.
Ultrasonic cleaning, as an advanced technology cleaning method, pays special attention to humanized design in terms of safety performance. With the original intention of saving time, energy, efficiency and environmental protection, it makes life rich and simple due to technology, and comfortable due to beauty.
