Sealing Solutions for the Food and Pharmaceutical Industry

We are an internationally active group of independent gasket manufacturers and plastics processors. Our group produces all types of seals and plastic mouldings such as O-rings, rubber mouldings, rubber-metal compounds, foam mouldings, semi-finished products and machines for machining seal production. State-of-the-art manufacturing techniques are used for this purpose.

Food and pharmaceutical industry

Food and pharmaceutical products are key factors that contribute to human well-being and health. The manufacturing processes require a variety of solutions for materials and components and must meet national as well as international standards.

Key components

For the production of food and beverages – similar to the pharmaceutical industry – seals and plastic components, such as guides and sliding bushings are a key component. Over four decades of sealing experience in the food and pharmaceutical industries distinguishes Trygonal as a developer and manufacturer of sealing and guide solutions. Old seals that no longer meet the current standards can, for example, be replaced by machined seals with the appropriate material pairing – suitable for the appropriate media. Reliable and durable compounds have already been developed for very abrasive and chemically aggressive media, for example.

Correct selection of materials

When selecting the material, several important selection criteria must be considered, such as the expected operating conditions, design requirements, approvals, standards and costs etc.

Operating temperature

Operating temperature

  • In which temperature range should the seal be used?
  • What is the minimum and maximum temperature?
  • Are there short-term peaks or continuous levels in these temperature ranges?
Chemical resistance

Chemical resistance

  • Against which media must the seal function and be resistant?
  • Are there any interactions, e.g. acids and alkalis?
  • What are the temperatures of the media to be sealed?
  • Are oils or greases used during assembly?
Mechanical properties

Mechanical properties

  • How is the seal inserted? Is it a static seal, dynamic seal, or a non-static, dynamic seal?
  • For dynamic seals: How high is the mechanical stress?
  • Is the seal rarely, regularly or permanently moved?
Engineering requirements

Engineering requirements

  • Component geometry with description
  • Critical dimensions and tolerances
  • Details of the desired service life
  • Installation and assembly considerations
Approvals

Approvals

  • Which guidelines and approvals apply to the respective production process and must also be fulfilled by the sealing materials used?
  • In addition to material requirements, does the material also have to adhere to hygienic design requirements?
Costs

Costs

  • Cost in relation to value
  • When selecting the materials for your components, the guiding principle should be “value-in-use”
  • The overall evaluation should also take into account quality, service life as well as saved maintenance and servicing costs.

Seals and sealing materials

Thanks to many years of experience, Trygonal can offer complete solutions:

  • Standard O-rings, machined O-rings, FEP/PFA coated O-rings
