Our detectable sanitary union gaskets are made from highly durable EPDM rubber containing evenly dispersed ferromagnetic additives (for metal detection) and high atomic number elements (for x-ray visibility). The entire formulation is food contact approved under FDA, EU and sanitary 3A requirements.
Our seals and gaskets are high performance, blue, food grade and also minimise foreign body contamination risks by being detectable by metal detection systems and x-ray inspection systems. Current stocked gasket types include RJT O-Rings, Tri-Clamp Gaskets and DIN D-Rings (Milk Couplings).
The use of detectable seals and gaskets is a strong display of due diligence in the prevention of foreign body contamination. Seal fragments as small as 5mm3 can be identified by correctly calibrated inspection systems, although detection performance will vary based on the food being inspected, the equipment type and other parameters.
RJT unions (Ring Joint Type) are otherwise known as a standard union. These are widely using in the food sector and particularly popular for sections of pipework that are frequently dismantled, e.g. for cleaning. RJT unions use an “O-Ring” style gasket – these are the most commonly requested gaskets in metal detectable version for the food sector.
