Sorry to have to post again about problems with items supplied by @SDeurope. I'm sure I'm just unlucky. Either that, or they are unlucky i order so much kit from them :D.
The 1.5" Silicone Gasket just supplied with the 1.5" x 3/4" Tri-Clamp Reducer Short is too small for the raised part of the gasket to fit in the groove / ring on the tri-clamp.
SD Europe says "the gaskets have to be streched a bit". This stretch is about 1.5mm - huge mismatch. I don't want boiling liquid all over me, so does anyone know how you stretch a silicone gasket uniformly to make it about 1.5mm bigger without destroying it?
I've had the odd gasket that didn't fit in the other size tri-clamps, but it's never been this far out, and it's two gaskets as I ordered a spare. I appreciate there needs to be a manufacturing tolerance, but the gaskets are the primary part of the tri-clamp seal and so it's essential they are a good fit.
