Recommended Posts

I'm looking for silicone 16.5" gasket 3/8" thick for fermentation manway and still joints (contacted Artisan several times with no luck).  google'd and found every kind of gasket except what I'm looking for.

I found a local gasket supplier that sells stock gasket material, he sold me a 24x48 sheet of FDA platinum cured silicone sheet.  I was able to just drop the flange on, trace it out, and cut it with an Xacto knife.  If you are interested in cutting your own gasket, I'll track down his contact info.  It was not particularly cheap though.

Thanks.  It's a circle - the gasket is 3/8" thick trapezoid (I think that's the right shape..tapered on one side?) and the centerline appears to be 16.5".  I'm guessing it's a standard size because we have 4 different tank manufactures+ a still manufacturer have this as a default manway size.

I'm gonna need a bunch - like 15 - so I'm really hoping I don't have to cut this by hand.  I may PM you if I don't make any progress soon though.

We draw out our gaskets in autocad and pick the material and thickness and have our gasket shop cut it out on a CNC vac table.

No, going through a middle man.

Super nice.

I got 15 gaskets that are just a tad too small.. 1/4" vs 5/16" on the still.  I can make it stick in the manway but the hinge just barely prevents it from sealing all the way around.  found a 7/16" that may work since it's round instead of the original trapezoid shape.
