Metal Detectable Elastomers

Metal Detectable Elastomers

Helping Prevent Product Contamination With Cost Effective Solutions
As a result of excessive use, shearing and damage can occur to equipment causing undetectable product contamination. Metal detectables can eliminate product recall, lower product loss and decrease the risk of elastomers consumed in finished product.

Specially Made for the Meat and Poultry Industries
Tuf-Steel™ metal detectable hygienic seals can be used on 500° F continuous hot oil applications used in the Meat and Poultry Industries.

System Protection with Metal Detectable Elastomers
Conductive and Magnetic Metal Detectable OEM Equipment

A common problem with component and filler parts is wear and tear as demonstrated in the above image. When rubber breaks off it can migrate through your system and into your product. Searching for and locating fragmented rubber parts is a costly, time consuming and inconclusive process requiring expensive x-ray equipment, manual observation and an extensive maintenance program. Not locating a worn rubber piece can have an even costlier outcome.

SPS provides an easier and cost effective solution with metal detectable elastomers. By manufacturing any standard elastomer with an FDA approved metal filler, a worn off piece of elastomer material can now be located by an in-line metal detector. This alarm enables your system to instantly be shut down for the removal of contaminated product and the immediate replacement of the worn part. Detectables eliminate product recall, lowers product loss and decreases the risk of elastomers consumed in finished product.
