Common Gasket Types in the Food and Beverage Industry

Gaskets play a critical role in ensuring sanitary and safe operations in the Australian food and beverage industry. Common types of gaskets used in this industry include:

•  Silicone Gaskets: Known for their excellent temperature resistance and flexibility, silicone gaskets are widely used in food processing due to their ability to maintain a tight seal and their non-reactivity with food products.

•  EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) Gaskets: These gaskets are popular due to their resistance to heat, ozone, and a wide range of chemicals. They are ideal for applications involving hot water and steam, which are common in food and beverage processing.

•  PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) Gaskets: PTFE, commonly known as Teflon, is highly resistant to chemicals and can withstand extreme temperatures. It is non-reactive and has a very low friction coefficient, making it suitable for applications where cleanliness and non-contamination are critical.

•  Nitrile (Buna-N) Gaskets: Nitrile gaskets are known for their excellent resistance to oils and fats, making them suitable for applications involving dairy products and oily food substances. They also provide good resistance to abrasion and tearing.

•  Viton (Fluorocarbon) Gaskets: Viton gaskets are used in applications that require high resistance to aggressive chemicals, high temperatures, and oils. They are particularly useful in sealing systems where food products may come into contact with harsh cleaning agents.

•  Neoprene Gaskets: Neoprene is resistant to oils, heat, and weathering, making it suitable for certain food processing applications. It provides good overall performance in terms of flexibility, durability, and chemical resistance.

•  Compressed Non-Asbestos Fiber (CNAF) Gaskets: These gaskets are made from synthetic fibres bonded with elastomers, offering good resistance to a range of chemicals and temperatures. They are often used in applications where asbestos gaskets were previously employed, providing a safer alternative.

•  Metal-Detectable Gaskets: These gaskets are designed with embedded metal particles that can be detected by metal detectors used in food processing lines, helping to prevent contamination by gasket material.
