  • HEX gasket tac adhesive suggestion?

    Re assembling a HEX I broke down and deep cleaned and need an adhesive to tac the gaskets to one side of a plate so they stay in place while re assembling.

    Usually I try to maintain the attachment of one side of the gasket to a plate, but needed to break this one down completely.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    When reassembling small items I usually use silicone grease/lube (or Keg Lube) to hold o-rings in place. You could see if that offers enough tackiness to hold a larger HEX gasket while you prep the mating plate.

    Good luck - let us know if you find a good solution!

      We use 3M 1099 contact adhesive. Glue in gaskets are a pain, The adhesive will flow out and glue the plates together if you use too much.

        Tom, Steve,

        Thanks for the input!! I'll probably go with Steve's suggestion as I need to assemble it in place as apposed to on its side with the plates horizontal.

          If you are talking about Plate and Frame Heat Exchangers, there are all kinds of Videos out there by the shops that re-build them all the time that need to be looked at.
          This is not something you want to crack into very often, unless absolutely necessary.
