Advanced Couplings Limited are delighted to offer a Metal Detectable gasket – fully produced in the UK from UK sourced compound – to FDA & USP Class VI compliant grade.
The inclusion of ferrites in the compound make it metal & x-ray detectable so that any fragments of rubber, for example by abrasion or breakdown of the seal, can be identified by standard metal detectable software in use in Food & Pharmaceutical production lines.
- Metal & X-Ray detectable to reduce the risk of rubber materials migrating to the finished product
- Compliant with HCCP Programmes
- Outstanding water & steam resistant
- Free from animal derived ingredients
- FDA compliant to CRF.21.177.2600
