The challenges faced by seals in the food and beverage industry are manifold. A variety of different applications put forward different requirements for the selection of correct sealing solutions. Especially in beverage filling, it plays an important role in avoiding taste transfer. In addition, the sealing material must be able to withstand corrosive cleaning medium.
In order to ensure the safety of food, the design and material composition of products must meet the legal requirements. At the same time, they must meet the hygienic design standards, that is, they must be sealed without dead angle, so as to prevent pollution. The specially developed material mixture conforms to the relevant industry specific standards, and can also withstand strong temperature fluctuation and corrosive medium. The innovative product design conforms to the hygienic design standard, so it can be used in a wide range of applications. Even under extreme application conditions, reliable sealing without dead angle can be ensured.
Always ahead of current trends, we all know how it feels to enjoy a cool drink or freshly prepared dinner. And we take it for granted that these foods are bacteria free and taste pure. But to do this, we must ensure that there is no invasion of foreign matters in the process, which is where Sealcon sealing solution works.
Seals in the food industry must meet three different challenges:
1. The seal must perform well under the working conditions.
2. Sealing design and materials must be suitable for contact with food.
3. The design of the seal must be suitable for the cleaning or disinfection methods exposed to it.
The primary method of sealing in the food industry is to simply design the seal for industrial applications and use materials that are approved to be in contact with the food.
