What matters most when it comes to a dairy gasket? Seal quality, ease of seal, durability, and price point. Our dairy gaskets are the best of the best and will handily meet your needs while lasting longer than you’d expect and costing less than you’d expect as well. Using rubber? Give our PTFE gaskets a chance. You won’t be disappointed.
Sanitary gaskets are recommended for use in stainless steel sanitary fittings and equipment. These gaskets are used primarily in the dairy, food products, drug, and chemical industries. Sanitary gaskets provide an effective seal in fittings and equipment, including vacuum and pressure lines.
Sanitary gaskets made of PTFE offer several advantages in the food and dairy industry. Gaskets do not have to be changed when cleaning equipment, as PTFE is unaffected by chemicals and cleaners. Stainless steel lines can be sterilized without having to remove the sanitary gaskets, as PTFE provides continuous service at temperatures from -450°F to (+)560°F. Sanitary gaskets are not responsible for any impurification in food or dairy products, as Teflon is completely odorless and tasteless.
There are several types of sanitary gaskets available. We offer full sizing in John Perry, DIN, Q-Line, I-Line, and Slit-style gaskets.
The bevel type (see Figure 1) is available in 1”, 1½”, 2”, 2½”, 3”, and 4” sizes (nominal pipe sizes). The clamp, or beaded type (see Figure 2) is available in 1”, 1½”, 2”, 2½”, 3”, 4”, 6”, 8”, 10”, and 12” sizes (nominal pipe sizes).
As part of our ever-growing product line, we are now offering a new style of tri-clamp gaskets directly to breweries and distilleries. These gaskets utilize a combination of materials in order to create the best seal while maintaining the longevity you need. With the characteristics of a PTFE gasket and the seal quality and ease of seal of a traditional rubber tri-clamp, they really are the best of both worlds. Our new line of brewery and distillery-focused gaskets are reusable and don't break down or contaminate like rubber does, they are sanitary, and can be ordered in pigmented colors for ease of distinction when swapping out entire sides of an operation.
