Cast iron pump face gasket designed for newer model cast iron pumps to be sure that they are water and air tight preventing leaks and lack of prime.
The gasket is used during pump rebuilds or to address a leaking face gasket leak due to pump overheating or general wear and tear. Common use of a sealcoating pump will put wear on the gaskets of the pump due to the abrasive nature of asphalt sealcoat for pavement. As the centrifugal pump spins it will push sealer to the outer parameters of the pump causing wear to the inside shell of the pump where the gaskets are also exposed.
It’s always important to have pump rebuild kits that have gaskets to be able to keep your sealcoating sprayer in operation at all times. If you have a leaky gasket it can create a mess in the bed of the pickup truck or on a trailer which creates time consuming work hours to clean up. Also, if the sprayer loses it’s prime due to leaky gaskets, it will prevent you from having a pressurized fan spray out of the tip of the spray gun which is needed to sealcoat properly in an even and professional fashion. Make sure you have gasket backups for your sealcoating pump at all times.
