Tri-clamps are one of the most common sanitary connection types in North America. It consists of a gasket between two tri-clamp ferrules or flanges which are mechanically tightened in place with a clamp. Made from stainless steel, it is used for piping in the food, beverage, biotech, and pharmaceutical industries. These metal detectable gaskets have particles embedded in the rubber material so that they can be identified by detection equipment. They are verified by both ASME A270 and 3A certifications.
- Good for general use where temperature extremes do not exist
- Metal detectable gaskets are impregnated with stainless steel particles. The addition of stainless steel allows a gasket or gasket pieces to be found with metal detection equipment.
