Orifice plate gaskets improve system performance, adjust flow rates, balance back flow and equalize back pressure during SIP procedures.
Tri clamp gaskets are used to make a secure, leak proof connection between clamp fittings. A variety of materials is available for selection depending upon medium used in line processing. Gaskets range in size from 1 inch to 4 inches. Please see Compound Selection Guide for compatibility information.
Achievable benefits while maintaining sanitary conditions. Standard with 1/8” concentric bore.
