Price : $8.07 $23.00
Rubber Fab EPDM 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. EPDM Metal Detectable gasket particles are detectable down to 1mm in size.
Rubber Fab's Tuf-Steel® Sanitary Tri-Clamp® Gaskets are the material of choice when purity, long service life, performance, chemical resistance, and heat resistance are required. Tuf-Steel® Gaskets are 100% leak free when torqued correctly, and will experience minimum creep and cold flow. The Tuf-Steel® material is a unique proprietary blend of non-pigmented PTFE (Teflon®) and 316L Stainless Steel that has been water atomized and passivated. The end result is a Tuf-Steel® Gasket that is non-stick, features no pigmentation, and has ultra-low absorption rates. These Tri-Clamp® Gaskets can maintain seal integrity under large temperature fluctuations with a serviceable temperature range from -350°F to 550°F. We recommend the use of the Torque-Rite® Clamp to get the most out of these gaskets.
Tuf-Steel® is the original metal detectable gasket, the material has always been detectable with metal detectors and magnetic separators. Over 10 years of testing and documented application usage show that Tuf-Steel® is the choice for perfect surface performance, outstanding durability, extended service life and increased up-time for both SIP (steam in place) and WFI (water for injection) applications. Tuf-Steel® Gaskets are ideal for sanitary steam and extreme temperature processes, especially fryer and hot oil applications. Unlike envelope gaskets, the superior strength of the Tuf-Steel® blend will not revert, eliminating creep and cold flow, providing a leak-free seal.
