ASME BPE Gaskets
ASME BPE is the international Standard for Bioprocessing Equipment published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This Standard governs the design and construction of piping systems for hygienic service.
PPE manufactures HyClamp™ gaskets to ASME BPE in various imperial sizes from 1" to 4" (nominal), including lipped and unlipped variations, plus a range of mini-clamp sizes. Use the HyClamp Look-up Tool to find sizes and PPE part numbers.
ASME BPE hygienic gaskets are molded in several elastomer material grades, including EPDM, silicone, FKM and FFKM. This range of materials provides a solution for every application including X-ray/metal detectable elastomers. PPE's HyClamp™ materials meet various international sanitary standards and approvals including FDA, USP Class VI, 3A 18-03 Sanitary Standards and EC1935/EC2023, in addition to being free from animal derived ingredients (ADI-free). More information on each of the materials is provided below.
