Current method & challenge
The transformer manufacturer was using cork gaskets, but due to gaps left between the flanges he was facing the following challenges.
- Precut gaskets were not able to tackle the surface irregularities in the flanges.
- Cork gaskets deformed over time leading to creation of leak paths.
This led to a high number of service requests due to leakages at the customers end.
Oil tank flange is cleaned with a solvent based cleaner. LOCTITE SI 5910 is uniformly applied. The top cover of the oil tank is sealed, and bolts are tightened.
- 50% lower service request.
- No need to maintain large inventory of different gasket sizes.
