We have 10 different industry subjects.
Food & Drinks Industry, Medical Industry. Here are 2 examples of the 10 industry we have on our webshop.
When it comes to food and drinks it is important to pay close attention to the hygiene, durability and conformity. Seals can be used in a lot of ways. For the food and drink industry they need to have a high degree of purity and make it to the hygiene standards.
When filling beverages it is important to avoid aroma transfer. The sealing materials need to be able to withstand aggressive cleaning materials and fabrics. There are legal requirements the sealing must adhere:
EU (VO) 1935/2004
American FDA $ 177.2600
Chinese GB 4806
Hygienic Design Standards (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group)
The EHEDG needs to make sore the seal is free from dead space and prevent contamination.
Specially made mixed like, 70 EPDM 291 or Fluoroprene are relevant. This is because they withstand the temperature alterations and aggressive media. The newest designs have the most innovative products, because of these designs they can be used in a wide range of applications. An example of this is the Radiamatic® HTS II. This is a reliable sealing that does not have dead space even under extreme applications.
Rubber O-rings are used a lot for sealing applications, they are easy to customize and their sustainable. The medical industry has more and more tough applications for devices which means devices and parts need to be stronger and being able to handle harsh environments.
Medical O-rings are usually used for important applications. A few examples are respiratory equipment, drug delivery devices, fluid transfer devise, pumps and more. Because these applications are really important they cannot fail, they need to have the right O-ring size to work correctly. At this exact moment there are a few things that are important the materials that are used the most are: EPDM is the biggest on in the importance of the chemical rings.
Medical O-rings are made and tested to make sure the seals can be used as a medical supply. Because medical seals come in contact with the human body, the O-rings need to tested on biocompatibility. This means that the O-rings do not react to other materials but only to the human body.
To be sure the O-rings are useful and can be used as medical tool, there must be done some tests. The USP test and the ISO 10993 need to be done. Materials for medical grade O-rings are selected to turned into an medical supply.
Techniparts chooses the materials that have strong chemical resistance, great heat resistance and a low permeability to gas. This makes the O-rings used in the medical industry safe and durable for any medical application.
