GASKET SILICONE-FAUCET SHANKAlways OEM - Nothing generic, "equivalent" or off-brand.
A faucet or a tap (also spigot) is a valve controlling the release of a liquid or gas. Turning a valve knob or lever adjusts flow by varying the aperture of the control device in the valve assembly. The result when opened in any degree is a choked flow. Its rate is independent of the viscosity or temperature of the fluid or gas in the pipe, and depends only weakly on the supply pressure, so that flow rate is stable at a given setting.
Gaskets are used in restaurant equipment to create a seal between two surfaces, such as between the door of a refrigerator and the frame or between two pieces of metal in a gas range. The gasket helps to prevent leaks of air or liquids, as well as to maintain a consistent temperature inside the equipment. Gaskets are often made of rubber or other flexible materials that can withstand heat and cold and maintain their shape over time. They are used in a wide variety of restaurant equipment, including refrigerators, freezers, ovens, and steam tables and are also commonly used in plumbing for equipment and sinks.
A schank is the long, narrow part of a tool connecting the handle to the operational end. A shank is frequently used with a faucet or dispensing control knob or handle. The unthreaded part of the shaft of a bolt is also called the shank.
In restaurant equipment, silicone has many uses including as a sealant. In addition, as non-toxic material, silicone can be used where contact with food is required and is frequently used in kitchen utensils, oven mitts, matting and more. It's water and heat resistance allow silicone to be used in common foodservice equipment parts such as washers, o-rings, gaskets, tubing and hoses.
