How to Re-Design FBD Gasket for Perfect Fit

Jul 18, 2022
Before buying a new FBD gasket, it is imperative that you check the fit of the replacement part. A gasket fits one way and only one way. If your gasket does not seal properly or leaks when under pressure, it is time to re-design it. You can accomplish this by using a gasket design software like Inventor. It takes you through step by step process of designing a new gasket using your CAD files and parameters for the particular application.

Here are some tips on how to re-design FBD Gasket for Perfect Fit:

Understand the Purpose of FBD Gasket


First, you need to know why you are re-designing your gasket. The main reasons are listed below. - The original gasket is worn out and needs to be replaced - The original gasket has been damaged and needs to be replaced - The original gasket has been modified and it needs to be modified - The original gasket has been designed in a different way and needs to be redesigned - You need to reduce the thickness of the gasket - You need to re-design the gasket for a different purpose or application - You need to change the material of the gasket - You need to change the design of the gasket.

Sketch the Original FBD Gasket


Let’s first sketch the original gasket. Use a pencil to sketch the gasket structure, and a ruler to draw the dimensions. You can also use a piece of paper and a pencil. The inventor then makes it easy for you to save your file as a PDF. You can also utilize the editing tools in Inventor to make necessary changes to your original design. You can for example change the thickness of the walls.

Create a Solid CAD Model for your Gasket


Now, you can create a solid CAD model of the gasket. You can do this by selecting the ‘add gasket’ button in the gasket design tools. Once you click on this option, Inventor will ask you to enter the parameters of the gasket. You can enter these parameters such as the wall thickness, inside diameter, outside diameter, and length. You can also enter tolerances regarding the tolerances.

Analyze Your Data with SIGs and Tolerances


Now that you have the basic design of the gasket, you can analyze your data using the Signature and Tolerances tool. The Signature tool helps you analyze your data for gasket design. This tool uses information such as the inner and outer dimensions of the gasket and the pressure (in PSI) to calculate the inside surface area of the gasket. Once you enter the values, Inventor will show you a graph that helps you understand the design of the gasket. The data such as the pressure and dimensions are referred to as the signatures. The tolerances help you understand the design of the gasket within the limits.

Present Your Results to Customers


Now that you have the design of the gasket, you can present it to your customers. You can do this by uploading the final gasket design file and then exporting it to a PDF. You can also send it via email. You can also export the design to a DXF file and have your customers open it with CAD software to have it review the design. You can also save the design in a library for future use. This is a great way to keep track of your designs. You can also use the library to view the designs from different customers.

Conclusion


FBD gaskets play a critical role in the operation of various systems and equipment. They are used in the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat exchange industries. They can be used in heat pumps and air conditioning systems. They are used in the process industries such as petrochemicals, refining, oil, natural gas and power generation. The main function of these gaskets is to seal and protect the equipment from the environment. When choosing a new gasket, you have to check the fit. If the gasket is not sealing properly, then you can re-design it. You can achieve this by using a gasket design software like Inventor. It takes you through step by step process of designing new gaskets using your CAD files and parameters for the particular application.
