THERMOSTAT SEAL WASHER
A mechanical seal is a device that helps join systems or mechanisms together by preventing leakage (e.g. in a pump system), containing pressure, or excluding contamination. The effectiveness of a seal is dependent on adhesion in the case of sealants and compression in the case of gaskets or o-rings.
A thermostat is a device that is used to control the temperature in restaurant equipment such as ovens, grills, fryers, and refrigeration units. The thermostat is an integrated component and is connected to a temperature sensor, which measures the temperature inside the equipment. The thermostat uses this information to control the heating or cooling elements in the equipment, turning them on or off as needed to maintain the desired temperature. This allows the equipment to operate at the optimal temperature for the specific food or beverage being prepared, ensuring that it is cooked or cooled to the proper level.
A washer is a thin plate (typically disk-shaped, but sometimes square) with a hole (typically in the middle) that is normally used to distribute the load of a threaded fastener, such as a bolt or nut. Other uses are as a spacer, spring (Belleville washer, wave washer), wear pad, preload indicating device, locking device, and to reduce vibration (rubber washer). Spring washers, which have axial flexibility are used to prevent fastening or loosening due to vibrations. Locking (lock) washers prevent fastening or loosening by preventing unscrewing rotation of the fastening device.
