Gaskets are a fundamental piece of any compressor. They keep everything sealed and ready to work. Having the right gaskets is crucial within a compressor because, without them, various parts can rub together, creating friction that can result in damage. Choosing the right gasket kit for your compressor is important. Here are a few things you need to make sure are correct before you purchase any kit.


Made for Your Compressor

Making sure that you get gaskets that are made specifically for your compressor is very important. These parts will be able to fit your compressor better than any others. Correctly fitted parts are fundamental to maintaining the quality and safety of your compressor. With ill-fitting parts, a compressor is more likely to fall apart, get damaged or stop working all together. These damaged compressors can cause larger workplace accidents, such as fires or explosions. Make your workplace as safe as it can be by ensuring that all parts, including gaskets, are properly fitted.


Have All the Gaskets You Need

Some compressors require multiple gaskets in order to work properly. Any compressor gasket kit you buy should include all the parts you could possibly need. Purchasing a kit that does not include all the necessary gaskets for your compressor could leave you high and dry should something break. Buying a gasket kit that does not include all the relevant gaskets is setting yourself up for failure. Make sure that you have all the parts you could need, even if you do not need them immediately. Additionally, if one gasket is experiencing wear, other gaskets could begin to fail. Replacing them all at once can help save you in down time during various repairs.

Picking the right compressor gasket kit is fundamental to the success of your compressor. The right kit gives you all you need to make sure your compressor keeps running smoothly and damage free for longer than a substandard or ill-fitting gasket will.
