When should I change the gaskets on my filter press?
It's a good idea to change your gaskets whenever you change your filter cloths. Also, if you are getting excessive leakage out of the press while maintaining correct hydraulic closure pressure, this may be a sign that it is time to change your gaskets.
Gasket life will depend on many factors, such as:
- length of filtration cycle
- excessive closing force
Gasket replacement should take place if the gasket appears to be delaminating or shredding into small particles.
Also, if excessive temperatures exist and cycles are very long, the Nordel elastomer (standard gasket material) may go into additional cure, causing it to harden slightly. If the gasket life of the Nordel elastomer is unsatisfactory, contact Evoqua for a suitable replacement.
