The MIV Gearbox Adapter Gasket is an important component of the Hale MIV system. The MIV is a multi-intake valve that allows the fire pump to draft water from multiple sources, such as a pond, lake, or river. The gearbox adapter gasket helps to ensure that the MIV system is properly sealed and that no water leaks out.
The Hale MIV Gearbox Adapter Gasket is a relatively inexpensive part, but it is important to replace it regularly to ensure that the MIV system is operating properly. A worn or damaged gasket can cause water leaks, which can reduce the performance of the fire pump and even damage it.
Here are some of the signs that you may need to replace your Hale MIV Gearbox Adapter Gasket:
- Water leaks around the MIV gearbox
- Reduced performance of the fire pump
- Overheating of the fire pump
