DIN32676 is the German Standard (Deutsche Norm) detailing fittings for the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries and clamp connections for stainless steel tubes, including weld-on type. There are three sections of the Standard which provide specifications for elastomer gaskets:-
- Series A - metric sizes 10mm to 200mm (nominal) + mini clamp sizes 6mm to 8mm
- Series B - metric sizes 21.30mm to 219.10mm (nominal) + mini clamp sizes 10.2mm to 17.2mm
- Series C - imperial sizes 0.75" to 6" (nominal) + mini clamp sizes 0.25" to 0.50"
DIN32676 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.
