A patented seal for food-grade piping connections  

By mjsmaling |

The blue U-shaped seal is a new development that expands the range of ring seals for pull-ring connections. Blue is the recognized color for hygiene, and the seal conforms with both the European EC 1935/2004 and U.S. Food and Drug Admin. (FDA) standards. A special feature is that the blue ring can be detected by, for example, the company’s two-way valve with a metal detector. This feature prevents parts of the ring from getting into the production process due, for instance, to faulty installation. The detectable blue U-shaped seal is a patented innovation that is exclusively offered by this company. — Fr. Jacob Söhne GmbH & Co. KG, Porta Westfalica, Germany
