Unflanged Sanitary Tri-Clamp® Detectomers® Metal Detectable Gaskets - Silicone
Part # : 40MPX-BUZ-XR
Price : $3.07 $10.00
Rubber Fab Silicone Detectomers® 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. Silicone Metal Detectable gasket particles are detectable down to 1mm in size.
Peroxide Cured Silicone Tri-Clamp® Gaskets are an excellent choice for use in production facilities for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, high-purity water, and food/beverage products. Silicone Sanitary Gaskets can withstand temperature extremes, radiation, corona, ozone exposure, moisture and steam. We recommend considering Silicone Gaskets when it is not feasible to use PTFE Gaskets due to severely misaligned fittings, or if the cost of high pressure clamps outweighs the benefits of PTFE (extended service life). Unlike PTFE, Silicone gaskets are very flexible at low temperatures. They are also odorless, tasteless, non-toxic, and hygienic. With the ability to be autoclaved, irradiated and gas sterilized, Peroxide Cured Silicone Gaskets provide you with the ultimate high purity contact surface.
The curing process of Silicone Gaskets has a direct affect on the amount and type of extractables the hygienic seal will emit. The peroxide curing process leaves residuals of Benzoic Acid (the curing additive) that results in unwanted surface conditions that can lead to product contamination. The peroxide curing process eliminates this problem and minimizes reaction between the gasket and process fluids. These gaskets are post cured and will not cause cell mutation or growth retardation. Our Peroxide Cured Silicone Gaskets maintain and uphold ultrapure water and cGMP process fluid standards. These gaskets have been manufactured from milled gum silicone which offers superior resistance to tearing and deformation when compared to traditional liquid injection molding silicone.
