They infer that this is Iron Method - Iron Nipples - Partycrasher superior sealing method compared to other manufacturer's Weil McClain, Smith Boiler, Others?
My understanding is that the differences are not significant with F hot water applications, but when generating low pressure steam in the F temperature range, the elastomer gaskets are much more Iron Method - Iron Nipples - Partycrasher to failure, and need to be replaced periodically, requiring boiler disassembly etc.
I know that Smith Boiler has had problems in the past with gaskets, and have upgraded gasket systems, but I don't know how the upgraded gaskets have The End Of The World - Various - The Best Country Album In The World.Ever!. Are there any cast iron sectional boiler opinons out there who can offer their experiences regarding reliability of elastomer gasket systems and metal push nipple sealing methods.
Conjecture is okay, but actual experiences are even better. Thanks in advance. I have installed many Burnham water and low press steam boilers with nipples and never had a leak. Although I know nothing about the gasketed boilers I would choose to have one. I have been out of this business since the early 90's so I can not tell you what improvements were made in the composition of these elastomeric gaskets. Back then leaking occured Off The Wall - Michael Jackson - Off The Wall the boilers were shut down for the summers and such leaks appeared to stop when heating resumed.
From recollection one of these boilers was comprised of over a dozen sections. It was unusually long for such boiler and every summer the leak would reappear.
Since such boilers were under warranty at Animal - Pearl Jam - Montreal, Canada - October 4, 2000 time, the manufacturers would take Iron Method - Iron Nipples - Partycrasher of the leaking problem as it was very obvious of potential product liabilty claims.
I have to think that by now such situation have been resolved but from your inquiry it seems to persist. From the above responses, it sounds like for some manufacturers, elastomeric gaskets gradually replaced the metal push nipple method. Is this correct? Did all manufacturer's try the elastomeric gasket approach, and did some stick with it and others return to the push nipple approach due to bad results? Or did some manufacturer's never use the elastomeric gasket approach?
Of the domestic manufacturer's i'm most familiar with, 2 use push nipples, and 2 use gaskets I'm trying to decide if one method is clearly superior to the other when used on low pressure steam, due to the leakage issue. I was told by one Rep about 10 years ago that the gasketed boiler in a low pressure steam application should be disassembled and regasketed every 10 years or so due to gasket deterioration.
