Washers – Do I need one?


A washer is a small circular component that is specifically for the inside a device to fill any unnecessary gaps. Gaps between different parts in a machine can cause unnecessary movement and lead to friction damage inside the device. Components can hit into each other. This adds wear and tear on the machinery and can potentially jeopardise the safety and functionality of it.


Prevents Damage


Washers are designed to absorb the shock and impact of any movement within the machinery, which would otherwise be impacting the machinery itself. Adding a washer to fill the gap creates a tighter fitting alignment of the components. Consequently, this can help prevent damage to the inside of the device.

What are Klinger Washers?


A Klinger washer, otherwise known as a compressed fibre washer is a type of washer by Klinger – leading sealing products developers. Before Klinger washers, the previous products were asbestos washer. However, the compressed fibre, often known as klingerite, used in Klinger washers contains no traces of asbestos. To conclude, making it a safe and ideal material to use.


Robust & Versatile


A klinger washer is made from a combination of aramid glass and rubber fibres and they are often used to provide a seal against liquids, gases and solvents. Aramid fibres within a Klinger washer have no melting point, which means that these type of washers are incredibly robust and versatile.


Ideal for Industrial and Marine Applications


The compressed fibre gives the klinger washer many admirable properties such as the ability to withstand high levels of pressure as well as water, air, salt and chemical resistance. These properties make the washers ideal for use in industrial and marine applications such as diesel engines and oil pipelines.
