Metal Detectable Seals

X-Ray and Metal Detectable elastomers are available in black and blue. They have been examined and approved for use in food production and pharmaceutical industries.

X-ray detectable materials are commonly applied in a broad span of critical sealing applications within the life-science and food processing industries such as food manufacturing and processing machinery, pharmaceutical production equipment and biomedical apparatus. They are attainable as moulded O Rings, DIN11851 D Seals, RJT O Rings, IDF seals, HyClamp™ sanitary gaskets, PUR-GARD® bearing isolators, and custom-designed components.

Rubber contamination may take place because of very high wear, and/or damage caused by the inappropriate application.  It reduces the risk of rubber materials migrating into the finished article and supply sequence. Therefore it eliminates costly material recalls, reduces product wastage and reduces equipment downtime and maintenance costs.
