Pharma & Food
Cleanliness and compliance are essential for stable production processes and high product quality in the pharma and food industries. Therefore, gaskets must meet exceptional requirements, to ensure product purity, leak tightness and resistance against aggressive media at temperatures that can some-times be extreme. Our gaskets from the Advanced Solutions portfolio are tailored to precisely these needs. They are suitable for use in steel flanges as well as stress-sensitive connections, show extremely low leakage rates and low surface pressures, meet GMP specifications, are FDA and EC1935/2004 conform and thus compliant with the highest product purity standards. Quick delivery times for this in-stock product range allow us to supply you on demand.
Solutions for steel flanges
Kammprofile gasket with PTFE layer [TFM™ 1600]
Profile: KD19, KD09
Design: low dead space, adhesive-free/clipped on, with and without centring ring
This Kammprofile gasket is an alternative to the well-known Tri-Clamp systems. The steel flanges feature a recess on both sides. This serves to optimally center the gasket. The inner diameter of the gasket corresponds to the clear width of the pipe, leaving no dead space. The layer is clipped. It is connected to the carrier mechanically, without adhesive. This also fulfills the demanding requirements of FDA or EC1935/2004 [EU10/2011]. The clipped-on layer allows multiple use of the base body. The design with centering ring [KD19] is not dead space free, but achieves a dead space reduction of more than 50%. Depending on the system and design, the operating parameters are max. 150 °C continuous operating temperature and max. 100 bar.
Solutions for stress-sensitive flanges
UNIFLUOR® ePTFE flat gasket
Material code: WS 7745
Optimized flat gasket made of multi-directionally stretched ePTFE with inner eyelet [TFM™ 1600]. The outer area is pre-compressed. Ideal for stress-sensitive flange systems such as plastic, glass or GRP flanges. Application parameters range from -268 °C to 230 °C [up to 315 °C for brief periods] and max. 40 bar.
