New Products: Hygienic sealing materials

Aug. 19, 2009
Three sealing materials have minimum swell and withstand high temperatures and process fluids.

Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) E7502,  fluorocarbon (FKM) V8605, and FKM V8T41 sealing materials are for hygienic-design couplings. They have less than 10% volume swell in 21 common cleaning-in-process (CIP) media.

EPDM E7502 has high chemical resistance to polar solvents, steam, hot water, and alkaline cleaning fluids. FKM V8605 withstands high temperatures and contact with high-fat media such as edible oils or cosmetics. FKM V8T41 has hot-water and steam resistance up to 338°F. It also gives high performance in contact with dry and liquid products in the meat, poultry, dairy, pharmaceutical, and bioprocessing industries.

All three materials comply with FDA, 21 CFR177.2600, 3-A, USP Class VI, USP and DIN EN ISO 10993-5, and EC 1935/2004. Gaskets and O-Rings come in ISO 2852, DIN 11864, DIN 32676, and custom sizes.
