Established in 2001, the Sanitary Seal Division of PTI specializes in the development and manufacture of FDA, USP and 3-A compliant sanitary gaskets and food grade O-rings. Our development and production efforts also include metal detectable/X-Ray inspectable gaskets and O-Rings. PTI’s products are used throughout the food, beverage, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries. We offer both standard and unique proprietary materials. Standard materials include EPDM, BUNA, Viton®, Silicone, and PTFE. Sanifluor®, rubber clamp gaskets and O-Rings provide unmatched service in the most challenging CIP (Clean in Place) and SIP (Sterilize in Place) applications.

Selecting the optimum sanitary gasket or food grade O-Ring, for a specific application requires the understanding of the expected process environment, the cleaning and sterilization processes employed and the physical properties and chemical resistance of the material from which the sanitary gasket or food grade O-Ring have been fabricated.

In general, the guiding principle in sanitary gasket and food grade O Ring selection should be “value in use”. Sanitary gaskets constructed of standard materials may suffice in a given production process but fail when exposed to higher temperature steam or caustic cleaning fluids. Typically, the higher cost of a high performance sanitary gasket or O-Ring can be recouped many times over by their long service life. Selecting the proper high performance sanitary gasket can increase the mean time between failure, (MTBF) thereby preventing costly unscheduled down time. Dangerous leakage and product contamination can also be eliminated by the selection of the optimum sanitary gasket or metal detectable gasket or O-Ring.

At the heart of a sanitary gasket or food grade O-Ring is the material from which it has been fabricated. The Sanitary Seal Division of PTI offers several high performance materials that have the mechanical properties and chemical/caustic/steam resistance to provide superior service in a wide rage aggressive pharmaceutical, biotechnology and food and beverage production processes. They perform in the most challenging SIP, (steam in place) CIP (clean in place) and WFI (water for injection) sterilization processes.

SEALDETECT® compounds are metal powder impregnated materials that have been specifically developed to advance the capabilities for detecting contamination and foreign material in food and beverage products. They are available in six FDA compliant compounds in the form of metal detectable/X-Ray inspectable gaskets, o-Rings and cord.
