Specialized static seals for hygienic-design couplings
Filling equipment, processing and packaging machines consist of many parts that have to be connected together. Proper cleaning, usually
Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) followed by Sterilization-in-Place (SIP) can only be achieved with hygienic design of the connection.
Gaskets and O-Rings in specialized materials
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions offers gaskets and O-Rings for the most common standards that apply to hygienic-design couplings, such as ISO 2852, DIN 11864 and DIN 32676. They are available in
FKM materials specifically engineered for hygienic-design coupling applications.
Proven outstanding performance in tests
The three materials recommended for hygienic-design couplings, EPDM E7502 and FKMs V8605 and V8T41, underwent various tests, including immersion in 21 commonly used CIP fluids. The materials demonstrated outstanding performance with V8T41 giving exceptional results for a fluorocarbon sealing material. In addition, the material is also suitable for hot water and steam applications up to +170°C / +338°F.
Compliant with major standards
All of these materials are compliant to and tested against FDA, 21 CFR177.2600, 3-A, USP Class VI, as well as against cytotoxicity (USP and DIN EN ISO 10993-5) and conform to regulation (EC) 1935-2004.
