What do I do if the clamp gasket between my feed pump and my feed tube keeps blowing out?
The clamp gasket is designed to relieve excess pressure in case of malfunction in order to prevent permanent damage to the machine. Typically, this is caused by a dirty check valve and can be easily remedied by following SOP-Check Valve to rebuild the check valve. In addition, the fouling of the check valve can be minimized by proper preparation of the material. Review SOP-Prep, and feel free to contact technical support for a one-on-one consultation.
