Subject: Standard Bambi Bucket Valve Gasket                                    
 
Background:
Bambi Bucket valves have been installed using butyl tape to seal the valve and prevent excessive
leaking. While effective, the butyl can be messy to work with and creates extra work when replacing a valve.
 
Recommendations:
To improve the process of changing a valve, SEI will begin using gaskets in place of the butyl tape on small and medium sized valves.

When installing the valve with the new gasket, do not use any butyl tape, and put the gasket in place after inserting the bolts through the bottom of the shell.
