PISTON SILICON GASKET
A gasket is a mechanical seal which fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, generally to prevent leakage from or into the joined objects while under compression. Ring gaskets are used with plumbing fixtures to create tight seals in plumbing repair, maintenance, or installation jobs. Sheet gaskets are used to create custom gaskets. Cam-and-groove gaskets provide a tight seal between couplings in low-pressure fluid applications such as regulators and pumps. Sanitary gaskets are used in piping systems for the food and beverage industry.
A piston is a component of reciprocating motors, reciprocating pumps, gas compressors and pneumatic cylinders, among other similar mechanisms. It is the moving component that is contained by a cylinder and is made gas-tight by piston rings. In a pump, force is transferred for the purpose of compressing or ejecting a gas or fluid.
