Our “How to Replace a Bravo Autoclave Door Gasket” article is one of our new “Quick Tips” series we want to put out for everyone.
Although many of these tasks are going to seem pretty self-explanatory they are important enough that the manufacturers include them in the User’s/Operator’s manuals. And it’s for that reason that we want to be certain everyone has access to these learning tools.

When do I need to replace the Door Gasket?
The manufacturer Statim suggests the Door Gasket be changed every 1000 cycles or 12 months (whichever comes first).
Where is the Door Gasket located?
It is located on the inside surface of the door.
Step 1 of Replacing the Bravo Door Gasket
Check the inside of the door to ensure it is not hot and then remove the old gasket by hand.
Step 2 of Replacing the Bravo Door Gasket
Clean the door gasket seat to ensure it is debris free.
Step 3 of Replacing the Bravo Door Gasket
Install the new door gasket by pressing the gasket into its seat, first on top, then on bottom.
