Imagining gaskets as popular travel destinations is a fascinating means of brain stimulus. Especially as we drift into a new season of the year, which brings us ever closer to the end of the year itself.
Colder, wetter weather is on the horizon and that means that its gasket seals to the rescue. With the impending seasonal change comes an increase in gasket manufacturing and maintenance checks.
Gaskets seals act as fillers between two different components preventing external elements from passing between them. These elements include liquids, air, and even dust. As winter approaches, gasket seals and their ability to withstand wet conditions are going to be beneficial to us all.
As popular utilities in the manufacturing of engines, gaskets are a crucial part of keeping us warm during colder months. Made tough to withstand the harshest of temperatures, gaskets will be the unsung heroes of winter.
With the colder weather comes the nostalgia of summer fun in the sun. And for many, plans for the winter holidays have already begun to take shape. As you travel to that destination of choice, consider how many gaskets are keeping you safe at 34,000 feet above the ground.
We know how much gaskets are ensuring our safety in the world of travel, but what if we thought of gaskets as popular travel destinations themselves? Basing their performance functions, materials, or popularity as if they were sought-after vacation spots around the globe.
Where would you adventure to first?
Gaskets as popular destinations in Europe
Rich with history, art, architecture, and philosophies of old, many would argue that Europe is the Rolls Royce of travel destinations. Whether you argue the same, is up to you.
But which gaskets would we label as European countries everyone loves to visit?
For starters, rubber gaskets would be likened to Italy. As one of the two strongest types of gaskets on the market, rubber gaskets are highly coveted. Much like the Italian coastlines.
Rubber gaskets give a little bit of everything thanks to their versatility. They can be made economically, and have strong chemical resistance. Choosing a rubber gasket means choosing top-quality watertight seals.
As these gaskets work to prevent leaks of both gases and liquids, it’s like getting the best of both worlds. In Italy not only is the food top tier but so are the weather and the surrounding waters. Sounds like the best of both worlds to us.
Gaskets that are made from felt absorb movement between surfaces, which likens them to the city of Istanbul. With parts of Turkey on both the Asian and European continents, Istanbul acts like a sealant between the two lands.
The fibers of the material act as a natural and effective filter medium. That is to say, felt gaskets maintain their seal under extreme circumstances, unchanging the surface of the material. Ottoman influences have also stood the test of time, remaining unchanged in countless ways of the Turkish way of life.
The absorbent qualities of the material make it suitable for humid conditions and are great for muffling sound. As one of the musical event capitals of the world, Istanbul is packed with loudness further proving the validity of this match.
What about gaskets as popular travel destinations elsewhere?
Gaskets as popular travel destinations in the Indian Ocean
Making our way around the globe to the warm water of the Indian Ocean. The third largest ocean on this bountiful blue rock, we liken silicone gaskets to the nation of atolls, the Maldives.
As a synthetic base, silicone gaskets perform better and are more efficient than rubber. Especially in higher temperatures, making them the perfect choice to mimic the white sands of the Maldives.
Resistant to UV lighting and extreme weather conditions, silicone gaskets are the most ideal for outdoor use. Silicone gaskets do not shrink or deteriorate when exposed to water. But the durability of its tear strength makes them reliable enough for colder temperatures, too.
Let’s hang around the Indian Ocean and label rope gaskets as Indonesia. A country that has been hit with natural disasters and a pandemic almost back to back. And as a result, is barely keeping it together.
In fact, it would be a toss-up if a good time would be had. Much like the sealing capabilities of rope when it was the primary material to manufacture gaskets from. A sturdy choice born of circumstances, rope gaskets are still used in the modern day, but rarely.
Indonesia as an archipelago sits just between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. Which gaskets would you label as a popular destination in the Pacific Ocean?
Gaskets as popular destinations in the Pacific Ocean
Our nomination for the bid is metal gaskets. With the potential to mass produce metal gaskets from sheet metal, copper, and aluminum, metal gaskets are undoubtedly the Hawaiian Islands.
Naturally resistant to high temperature and pressure, metal gaskets stand up tough to chemical exposure as well. The qualifications make metal gaskets the gasket of choice for things like pumps, compressors, or heat exchangers.
Washers, which are similar to gaskets, but not quite the same, are also manufactured from metal. Washers often accompany gaskets in electrical or mechanical equipment installations.
Copper gaskets would be labeled as the Big Island. Named as such for being the largest of the chain of eight. Given that copper gaskets are malleable enough to conform to various surfaces, it is incredibly strong.
Because they are copper, this also means they can withstand a ton of heat. Copper gaskets set a standard by which other gaskets are often measured. Much like the Big Island of Hawaii sets the precedence for the entire archipelago.
Aluminum gaskets then would be Ohau. These gaskets come from one of the softest types of metals, but should never be underestimated. Offering a high level of corrosion protection, aluminum gaskets are always manufactured with the highest quality standards.
Last, but not least, sheet metal gaskets. Labeled as Maui in this made-up list, sheet metal gaskets are full of surprises in the best ways possible. Sometimes called ‘gasket paper’, sheet metal gaskets are stamped out of large pieces of sheet metal stacked on top of each other,
This manufacturing method makes sheet gaskets super cost-effective. And as a sealant bringing two surfaces together, sheet metal gaskets are like the honeymooners of gaskets. Much like the island of Maui which is a honeymooners paradise.
Gaskets as they are
What do you think of our list? Can you see these gaskets as popular travel destinations as described? To Gorilla Gasket, gaskets are delightful just as they are. Even if they can’t serve us fruity beverages in fresh-cut coconuts.
