The Fluid Sealing Association just announced a training webinar!
“How to Select the Correct Gasket”
Friday, December 9, 2016 at 2:00 PM EST
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.
This 1.5 hour webinar 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

The interactive webinar will take place live on December 9. The cost is $50. If you cannot make the live version, we will have a recorded version on the FSA website, www.fluidsealing.com, to view on demand at a later date.
