James Walker has published an updated product brochure for its Elast-O-Pure range of hygienic clamp gaskets for the pharmaceutical and bio-processing industries.

The guide focuses on the Elast-O-Pure EP75, GF75 and SIL710 materials and includes the latest test data.

Results include the excellent performance of EP75 with regard to intrusion and recess performance in tests against key competitor products.

James Walker said this shows that only Elast-O-Pure remains within ASME-BPE Category 1 for intrusion specification (0.6mm) at clamping forces above the ASME recommended clamping force of 3.3Nm.

The results are accompanied by graphics and text explaining the importance of minimising gasket intrusion/recess within the production process.

In addition to test data and product benefit details for the Elast-O-Pure materials, the guide also introduces the range of Elast-O-Pure envelope gaskets for pharmaceutical and bio-processing applications.

USP Class VI certificated, the gasket range offers a full-coverage PTFE envelope with a choice of Elast-O-Pure filler materials.

The PTFE envelope is said to provide excellent non-adhesion properties, allowing for easy removal during maintenance, yet combines with the filler to provide good formability for low compressive clamp loading.

The printed version of ‘Elast-O-Pure Hygienic Clamp Gaskets Issue Three’ in English is now available through the global network of James Walker companies.

An electronic PDF version can be downloaded from the product brochures section of the company’s website.
