Choosing the correct replacement gaskets for tank trailers should be a top priority at wash rack facilities, said Kip Hart of Hart Industries Inc at the NTTC meeting. "All gaskets are not created equal," he said. He added that a failure from an inappropriate gasket installed by a tank wash could have serious repercussions, including a spill incident that could involve the tank wash in litigation.
"Even with the best hoses and fittings, a load can be jeopardized because the choice of gasket is wrong," Hart said. More of Hart's presentation at the April meeting in New Orleans will be covered in the June issue of Bulk Transporter.
