Sanitary Gaskets & Seals

We take our high-purity sanitary gasket program seriously. Sanitary gaskets have direct product contact. They deserve the same scrutiny and application expertise as all of the other components in a high-purity process system. We have been at the forefront in developing higher quality elastomers with better traceability for the sanitary process industry for many years. We have lead efforts to improve the purity and durability sanitary gaskets including doing our own in-house steam cycle testing on various gasket materials for both our customers and suppliers.

We source our sanitary Tri-Clamp gaskets from the highest quality manufacturers in the U.S. All are manufactured domestically. All have proven track records in manufacturing sanitary gaskets and are companies with which we have a long history.
