    McMaster-Carr parts for Monitor 441 - burn mat and gaskets

    Hello,

    Regarding parts from McMaster-Carr for the Monitor 441 heater, I have ordered the items that HayZee518 posted to service my heater.

    Silica sheet goods 1/16" thick, size 40"X40" - 9362K16 - $21.50 now $33.82
    Silica Fabric - A woven fabric - .026 thick, 36" wide - order by the foot 8799K3 $9.54/ft now $10.52/ft
    Silica fabric - .090 thick, 39" wide, per foot, 8851K33 - $26.56/ft now $27.09/ft
    BOROSILICATE GLASS - Viewing window material
    1/8" thick, 2" X 1" - 8476K321 - $1.20 each – now $3.96 each

    I probably should have read his post better, as it now appears I have 3 different materials which I can use for a burn mat….and no gasket material…which is what I need most.

    Other folks mention using 9323K21 - Fiberglass Paper Ultra-High Temp Insulation roll - 10 Feet x 16” x 1/8” for their gaskets. Do I need to buy this as well, or could I cut the 9362K16 board into gaskets?

    [FYI - 9362K16 is a Heat-Shielding Millboard Insulation with a 1360 degree F maximum temperature, 39” long x 39” wide x 1/16” thick. The dimensions of this item make it expensive to ship! ($70+ in my case!!!)]

    My husband usually does the heater servicing, and he has reused the gaskets several times, so I know I will need new ones. This year he is very ill, so I’m getting a crash course in many home maintenance jobs. He rebuilt the burn chamber a year or two ago, so I'm hoping all I need to do is clean the heater and replace the gaskets.

    I'm also looking for the pdf of the 441 gasket template.

    Thanks so much!

    There seem to be a lot more web stores selling Monitor parts these days. It might even be cheaper to just buy the factory gasket than to buy material & cut it to size. Advance Repair Service (KeepUsWarm dot com) has the 6317 top gasket for $24 + shipping. I saw it on eBay for $19.xx & free shipping. The burn mat is also for sale at cheaper prices than it used to be.
