Flanged Sanitary Tri-Clamp® Detectomers® Metal Detectable Gaskets - Buna
Rubber Fab Buna Detectomers® Flanged Tri-Clamp® Gaskets are part of their full line of x-ray inspectable and metal detectable sanitary gaskets. X-ray inspection and metal detection systems provides confidence to food, dairy and pharmaceutical manufacturers by insuring product safety and integrity as outlined by the Food Safety Modernization Act. Developing an effective inspection program to detect contaminants and to monitor the consistency and quality of product helps avoid product waste, recalls, costly down time and customer complaints. Due to it's low conductivity, elastomeric material is often missed by even the strongest detection systems. Rubber Fab's line of Detectomers® can be spotted by in-line x-ray inspection and metal detection systems as well as magnetic separators. Detectomers® products are a simple step in providing processing security against elastomeric contamination. Buna Metal Detectable gasket particles are detectable down to 1mm in size.
Buna Tri-Clamp® Gaskets are specified by many process equipment manufacturers and are generally suitable for these applications, however service life must be considered and a preventative maintenance program must be in place to mitigate degradation. Buna Gaskets have excellent resistance to petroleum based fluids, making them the economical choice for seals in engines and equipment where petroleum based oils, lubricants, and fuels are present. Chemically, Buna is resistant to many hydrocarbons, fats, oils, greases, hydraulic fluids, and chemicals. Never use Buna Tri-Clamp® Gaskets for Ozone (except PVC blends), ketones, esters, aldehydes, chlorinated hydrocarbons, or nitro hydrocarbons.
