Quality Control Measures: Custom O-Rings and Gaskets

Packaged GOODS: If It Goes BAD, It Can Get UGLY
If you are in the business of processing and packaging food, beverages, or pharmaceuticals, quality control is critical. When an edible item is processed, it passes through several machines and conveyer belts, which are usually made of metal alloys. Over time, the equipment wears down because of corrosion, malfunction, or surface fatigue. Extreme temperatures, rigorous vibrations, and CIP chemicals can make equipment even more susceptible to wear and tear which can result in tiny shards of metal or other foreign objects ending up in the final product.

Benefits of Metal Detectable Seals
We’ve all heard of costly food recalls due to contamination. Metal detectable o-rings and gaskets eliminate product recall by catching foreign materials before they get packaged with the product. O-rings and gaskets create tight connections between mechanical systems to make sure nothing gets in or out. The advantage of using metal detectable seals is they can detect lost fragments through an in-line metal detector.
