FORT WAYNE, IND.— Trelleborg Sealing Solutions launched FoodPro E75F1, an elastomer sealing material.
FoodPro E75F1 is a shore EPDM universal sealing material for static and semi-dynamic food applications, such as separators, decanters, valves, pipe couplings and heat exchangers, in any type of seal design, from standard O-rings and gaskets to multicomponent parts. It combines with other rubber, plastic and metal materials, allowing for the creation of multicomponent products, which helps eliminate potential dead space where bacteria may grow, according to the company.
The material is compression and injection moldable into complex geometries and withstands surface imperfections in applications. It was developed specifically for use in high-temperature dairy processing, including infant formula, and complies with all major global food contact regulations.
“Processing equipment manufacturers can look to FoodPro E75F1 to meet their customers’ needs because of its suitability for the widest range of applications,” said Mikkel Moerup, global segment director of food and beverage at Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. “They no longer need to specify sealing materials for each piece of equipment dependent on geographical use, process media and cleaning regimes.”
