Pipe Flange Asbestos Gasket - Damage

Often overlooked materials, asbestos gaskets can be a potential source of asbestos exposure, especially during routine removal of strongly adhered gaskets. To facilitate basic maintenance, unfortunately these highly-fibrous types of gaskets are commonly removed by mechanical personnel via intensive dry-scraping or by grinding off with power-tools. More appropriate and safer removal activities should be performed by properly trained, licensed and accredited asbestos abatement workers under specially control conditions.
