Stainless pipe joints

Production facilities and piping systems for liquid media in laboratories and production lines within the processing industry, the food industry and the production of pharmaceuticals are subject to very strict cleanliness and hygiene standards. Almost without exception, these standards require the use of stainless steel tubing. Certified clamp gaskets are ideal for this application, partly because they enable easy and safe maintenance of the system.

Movements from thermal extension, vibrations and reaction forces are an inevitable factor in processing and production lines. Compensators in the form of flexible flanges and tube joints absorb or control this type of movement, preventing damage to the piping system.


Sizing and use of clamp gasket

 

  1. Damming
    Overtightening the flange or mounting a clamp gasket with a too small aperture triggers a damming effect. This leads to the formation of deposits behind the clamp gasket.
     
  2. Hollow
    A hollow is formed if the flange is under-tightened or a clamp gasket with a too large aperture is mounted. This leads to the formation of deposits in the hollow.
     
  3. Correct use
    If the inner diameter of the clamp gasket and the pipe are compatible, no deposits will be formed.

Pumps

Pumps are composite structures with both static and dynamic applications.

When pumps are used in professional production facilities, there are very high standards for operational safety and performance. The cross-section diagram indicates the location inside the pump of the most critical seals.

Tanks and receptacles

Tanks and receptacles are widespread in the pharmaceutical industry. Tank design may be relatively simple (with few connections, no or few hatches) or complex (many connections of tubes and measurement tools, hatches, glass view ports, etc.).

Pressure, media and temperature are critical factors when choosing seals, in addition to the special requirements concerning cleaning and cleanliness that usually apply.

Mixers and blenders

In dragé and mixing machines, the rotating shaft is often sealed using oil seal rings. In addition to dynamic applications, these food production machines may also require static seals at tube flanges, inside ingredient containers, around lids and behind control panels.

Because these machines are used in environments where there is a combination of electricity, heat generation and water, it can be advantageous to use fire-safety approved seals and gaskets.

Packing, portioning, dosing etc.

Machines that are used for portioning, slicing, dosing and packing have several static seals and, depending on the design and function of the machine, there may also be a broader requirement for dynamic seals.

In addition to the gasket and seal products that are also used in dragé and mixing machines, we also provide bellow-type protective seals to cover moving machine parts and anti-slip machine feet to provide appropriate levels of stability.
