What do I need to be concerned with when gaskets are installed in grooves or recesses?

The compressed height of the gasket must be considered when installing gaskets in grooves or tongue and groove flanges. The fully compressed thickness, not the original thickness, must be greater than the groove depth or the space between the tongue and groove when flanges contact each other. Ideally, the tongue should be at least as tall as the groove depth.
