    Key features of high purity screen gaskets

    Material Selection

    These gaskets are typically made from materials that meet stringent purity and cleanliness requirements. Common materials include ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), PTFE (Teflon), EPDM, silicone, and other FDA-approved elastomers and plastics.

    Precision Mesh Screens

    These gaskets feature precision-woven mesh screens or filters that can have various mesh sizes and configurations. The mesh screens are designed to trap and filter out particles and impurities while allowing the passage of fluids or gases.

    Hygienic Design

    These high purity gaskets are designed with minimal crevices, dead spaces, or areas where contaminants can accumulate. This design minimises the risk of product build-up and makes them easier to clean and sanitise.

    Chemical Compatibility

    The gasket materials are selected for their compatibility with a wide range of chemicals and process fluids. This ensures that the gaskets maintain their integrity even when exposed to aggressive substances.

    Temperature and Pressure Resistance

    These gaskets are engineered to withstand the temperature and pressure conditions of specific processes without compromising their sealing and filtration capabilities.

    Applications of high purity screen gaskets

    Pharmaceutical Industry

    These are commonly used in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes to maintain the sterility and purity of drugs, vaccines, and biopharmaceuticals. They are used in filtration systems and sanitary piping to remove particles and contaminants.

    Biotechnology

    In biotech applications, screen gaskets are used in filtration and separation processes for products like monoclonal antibodies, recombinant proteins, and cell culture media. They help ensure product quality and consistency.

    Food and Beverage

    High purity gaskets are used in food and beverage processing to maintain product quality and prevent contamination. They can be found in filtration systems for beverages, dairy products, and high-value food products.

    Semiconductor Industry

    In semiconductor manufacturing, where even tiny particles can disrupt processes, high purity screen gaskets are used to filter gases and liquids and maintain clean environments.

    Laboratory and Research

    These gaskets are used in laboratory equipment, analytical instruments, and research applications where precise fluid control and contamination prevention are crucial.

    Water Treatment

    Screen gaskets play a role in water treatment processes, ensuring that water is purified and free of contaminants before distribution.

    The need for high-purity screen gaskets

    In summary, high purity screen gaskets are essential components in industries where maintaining product purity, hygiene, and contamination control are paramount. They contribute to the quality, safety, and consistency of products in a wide range of applications. The selection of the appropriate gasket depends on the specific requirements of the industry and process.
