Venco Pugmill Gasket

Recommended Posts

After several months of searching , I located a used Venco 3" pugmill.  Haven't picked it up yet but it was left full of clay.  I want to clean it out rather than cross contaminate a bunch of clay but  my first cousin Murphy tells me I'll probably mess up the gaskets in the process.  I want to have new gaskets on hand before I open it up.  Venco says you can use two layers of "electrical tape" for a gasket but they don't spec which electrical tape.  I'm sure 3M makes at least a hundred types of electrical tape.

 

My question is, what do you use or do you buy factory spares?  Any help would really be appreciated.  

 

Thanks in advance.

Not on a venco, but on a shimpo, as well as a WCS (2000# cap industrial mill and de-airing unit) I would buy gasket material in bulk...  If they say two layers of electrical tape, they probably mean generic, black rubber/plastic electrical tape...  It doesnt have to pull a HUGE vacuum, so those gaskets are pretty forgiving
