Hygienic Gaskets


The Rubber Fab Smart Gaskets value is proven when validating in high - purity pharmaceutical system.

A standard sanitary flange utilizing the Smart Gasket, Thermocouple Gasket obtains the critical thermal mapping information needed during the validation process.

Meter fluids in your process system using a peristaltic pump or withdraw samples through valve or syringe.

Then, utilize Rubber Fab's Spore Trap Gasket to securely retain spore test strips. These gaskets can be supplied in KFM (Viton) and Silicon.

Available Ports:

Thermocouple Gasket: 1 - 4 ports 

Sport Trap Gasket: 1 port


Rubber Fab's Sanitary Gaskets

  • Hygienic Orifice Plates

Our innovative Orifice Plate line includes a complete selection of solid 316L Stainless Steel, in standard or tabbed TC and vertical styles, that can be custom drilled with an eccentric or concentric bore. Tabs help to acknowledge that an orifice plate is "in line" and can be laser engraved to indicate the hole diameter, gasket size or user specified information., Hygienic Rubber Fab's Sanitary Gaskets

  • Hygienic Tuf-Steel 

Tuf - Steel   the original metal datectable and x-ray inspectable gasket, unique proprietary blend of non - pigmented and 316L passivated and atomized stainless steel.

Tuf - Steel  is ideal for sanitary steam and extreme temperature processes.

Hygienic Tuf-Steel gasket.
  • Hygienic Tuf-Flex

Tuf - Flex  , the ultimate pharmaceutical sanitary gasket, is setting new standards for purity, performance, flexibility and is the world's first unitized gasket.

A Tuf - Flex gasket's contact surface is PTFE unitized to an EPDM rubber inner core. Hygienic Tu-Flex Gaskets

PTFE is the material of choice whenever low temperature flexibility or gasket memory is not required and can remain in service for longer periods of time in both water and steam applications. PTFE is   not recommended with large temperature variations due to creep and cold flow. PTFE has minimal extractables, has a low absorption rate and excellent resistance to process fluids.

Platinum Cured Silicone is the material of choice in sanitary water systems when PTFE is not feasible due to severely misaligned fittings, or if the cost of high pressure clamps does not outweigh the benefits of PTFE (extended service life). See Rubber Fab’s Platinum Silicone Hygienic Seal literature for more information.

Hgienic Platinum Cured Silicone.

FKM Fluoroelastomer and EPDM compounds are specified by many of our process equipment manufacturers. They are generally suitable for these applications, however, service life must be considered and a preventative maintenance program be implemented to mitigate degradation.

Buna is the last choice in most applications due to temperature limitations and does not pass U.S. Pharmacopeia Class VI Certification and Cytotoxicity.
