Even though an Ideal Food factory would be constructed solely of stainless steel (AISI 304 or 316). However, practical engineering difficulties necessitate the use of flexible materials including Gaskets. Gaskets are responsible to ensure sealing between two steel components of the same equipment/ part, or between two different equipment. However, gaskets are deformable and often break apart if the wrong material is selected, or installed incorrectly, or due to variation in process/ environment conditions. In this video lecture, Disha Sinha (Process Engineer) at PMG Engineering introduces Gaskets and their uses. She further talks about the importance, benefits, and procedure of Gasket Management towards enabling food safety.
