Pharmaceutical production creates several challenges when it comes to effective sealing solutions, with contamination often a primary concern. This is a particular problem if aggressive or toxic chemicals are involved which can potentially react with sealing materials.
To compound the problem, glass or glass-lined vessels may be used. Cleaning with pressurised steam can also have an impact on seal performance. All these issues have a bearing on appropriate seal selection.
Across pharmaceutical and biomedical industries, mechanical strength, chemical resistance and hygienic sealing capability are all critical factors. Some of our materials have been specially developed to produce seals able to withstand a wide range of process media, potent active pharmaceutical ingredients and aggressive cleaning regimes.
We can help you with special solutions for the pharmaceutical industry, for drug processing, conveyor belting, and storage equipment.
Gaskets for pharmaceutical applications are often used in mixers, pumps, valves, and flanged joints in piping and transfer equipment. These gaskets combine excellent dielectric properties with a very low coefficient of friction and an ability to service a wide range of operating temperatures.
