Mechanical Seals for the Food and Beverage Industry

Mechanical Seals for the Food and Beverage Industry

When considering which mechanical seal to use in a food and beverage application, it is vital to use the correct material for your needs, in order to prevent corrosion, contamination, and chemical resistance. Further, it is vital to choose the correct seal material in this application in order to prevent contamination of the foodstuff being sealed, and ensure the effective functioning of your mechanical seal.

Thus, food grade mechanical seals are manufactured from specific food grade materials including Nitrile, and PTFE. Additionally, nickel is also frequently utilised in the manufacture of mechanical seals for the food and beverage industry. However, bronze is typically avoided due to certain grades containing tin and lead. Some additional appropriate materials are:

  • Carbon
  • Silicon Carbide
  • Tungsten Carbide
  • Stainless Steel
  • Duplex Steel
