RJT seals and o rings are frequently used by the food and beverage industry as a great solution to hygienic connections. FDA compliant, our RJT seals are precision manufactured, rigorously tested and built to be a reliable product.
What are RJT seals?
RJT stands for Ring Joint Type, and are the seals often required for use in brewing, beverage and dairy industries. They are a good choice also for assembly where sections of pipework are regularly disassembled, for instance in situations where the assembly frequently requires cleaning.
RJT seals are food grade, high performance seals with a number of key properties which make them suitable for the food and beverage industry. They provide reliable, durable seals which are detectable by x ray and metal detection systems, thereby managing the risk of foreign body contamination.
The properties of RJT o ring seals
Our RJT seals have some distinct material properties which make them a great choice for food production industries. These include:
- Broad range of operating temperatures, from -60°C to +230°C
- FDA compliant
- Resistant to weathering
- Resistant to acid, hydraulic oil and steam
- Discoverable by inspection systems such as x-ray and metal detection
RJT seals are seen as part of the standard union for hygienic fittings. We can supply o rings in a variety of elastomers to fit your choice of hygienic union connectors.
