Whitepaper: Why You Should Rethink Your PTFE/Teflon® Tri-clamp® Sanitary Gaskets
Polytetrafluoroethylene, better known as PTFE, or by its brand name Teflon®, is commonly used as a sanitary gasket in pipe
connectors within process lines.
PTFE gaskets are often used in demanding sanitary environments where traditional elastomers such as EPDM, NBR and Silicone are not suitable. But if your PTFE gaskets are failing, causing downtime and disruption, what can you do?
In this whitepaper we investigate some of the common issues surrounding PTFE/Teflon gaskets and take a look at what alternative options are available.
