Eriks Sealing Technology has developed a range of metal-detectable seals for use in sensitive applications where the ability to detect and contain contamination is vital.

The elastomers are detectable on production lines by conventional metal-detection equipment, so help to decrease the risk of polymers finding their way into the finished product and supply chain, reduce product wastage, eliminate costly product recalls and reduce equipment-maintenance costs.

The materials are FDA and 3A (class 1) compliant to meet the needs of the food, beverage, pharmaceutical and dairy industries.

The compounds are easily detected by most of the conventional metal-detection techniques that are already being employed on production lines.

Should a piece of elastomer be detected, the production line can be stopped immediately, contaminated products can be easily removed before they reach the supply chain and the problem on the production line can be quickly rectified.

The seals are manufactured from NBR, EPDM, FKM and Silicone compounds to form metal-detectable O-rings, sanitary gaskets and other moulded seals.

Particle sizes as small as 2mm can be readily detected.

As well as offering FDA compliance for the food and pharmaceutical industries, and 3A Class 1 (sanitary standard 18-03) compliance for the dairy, food and other hygiene-sensitive industries, these seals can be used as part of a HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) programme.

These procedures identify potential hazards so that key actions can be taken to reduce or eliminate the risk of hazards being realised.

The seals are available in blue or black for easy product identification and offer extended lifetime performance.

The seals operate over a temperature range of -60 to 220C and can be used in a variety of applications.
