Watch Out for Old Compression Gaskets.

Watch Out for Old Compression Gaskets. When changing any filter that has a gasket – use caution as old gaskets may stick.

A compression seal is a means of preventing migration of liquids, gases or solid contaminates across a joint or opening in an assembly or housing. A seal not only prevents the escape of fluid from inside and foreign material from entering the system from outside, but it must provide for easy installation and removal. A new gasket is critical for proper filter function.

Remember…

  • Remove used gaskets and clean the sealing area thoroughly
  • Always use a new gasket with a replacement filter
  • Over-tightening the filter may damage the head
  • Dispose of used filters properly
