Screen Gaskets for Food and Beverage Industries

Screen gasket consists two parts, one is the elastomer gasket external part, and in most cases its section is a standard Tri-Clamp. The gasket part is connected with a stainless steel screen or perforated stainless steel plate as inner part. The material of sealing gasket can be Viton, Buna, EPDM, PTFE, Silicone, NBR and so on, and the material of the screen can be stainless steel wire, copper wire, low carbon steel wire and so on. Our company's screen gaskets are anti-aging and pressure resistant, and they are mainly used in food and beverage industries as well as pharmaceutical industries.

A screen gasket with a round black rubber outer ring and a piece of stainless steel mesh as inner part.

Screen gasket can resist low and high temperature and anti-aging, and they can be used in pharmaceutical, food and chemical applications.

Two screen gaskets with metallic gasket and different mesh sizes.

Screen gaskets have various applications and their mesh count ranges from 10 to 400 to satisfy different filtration purpose.

A screen gasket with round metallic gasket ring, and dense - small hole mesh.

Screen gasket can also have metallic gasket ring to seal the gap, and it is acid and alkaline resistant.

Four different sizes of sock screen gaskets. One of them has round white gasket ring, and  three have round black rings.

Sock screen gasket generally has 300% more open area which means 300% more particle collection capability than conventional screen gasket.

A particulate elimination system using 10, 20, 40, 60 and 100 mesh screens from top to bottom to block different sizes of particles.

A fine particulate elimination system made of comprehensive range of mesh screens can effectively

Advantages of some gasket materials:

  • Buna: petroleum based fluids resistant.
  • FKM: corrosion resistant.
  • Viton: good chemical stability.
  • EPDM: anti-aging.
  • PTFE: high electrical insulation.
  • Silicone: high temperature resistance.
  • NBR: oil resistant.
  • CR: abrasion resistant.

Screen filter features:

  • Abrasion resistant.
  • Decrease pump wear and energy consumption.
  • Corrosion resistant.
  • Acid and alkali resistant.
  • Anti-ozone.
  • Petroleum based fluids resistant.
  • High reliability and durability.
  • Low and high temperature resistant.
  • Good electrical property.
  • Environmental compatibility.
  • Chemical compatibility.
  • Stress resistant.
  • Shock absorption.
  • Good sealing.
  • Anti-aging.

Applications:

  • Our screen gaskets have various applications in our daily life. Protecting sensitive pieces of process equipment, such as spray balls, spray nozzles, filling needles, pumps, one-way valves and accessories. By separating the volume of solids out of the process stream.
  • They can also be used for pre-filtration in thin-film filters, coalescence of water vapor from process lines, remove the large particulate before fill and finish process as well as disinfection process, and chromatography purification.
The specific usages of some materials
Materials Usages
Buna Widely used in the food and beverage industries, and the economical choice for seals in engines and equipment where petroleum based oils, lubricants, and fuels are present.
Never use Buna gaskets for ozone, ketones, esters and aldehydes.
PTFE Widely used in pharmaceutical, food and chemical applications.
Silicone Widely used in pharmaceutical, high- purity water, injectable, food and beverage applications.
Orifice plate Sanitary orifice plates are widely used in a sanitary process line to constrict or flow downstream, or to maintain a constant pressure upstream.
