A new metal detectable elastomer, designed to help bakeries reduce the risk of rubber contamination in bread and other bakery products, has been launched.
Detectaseal is FDA-compliant and has been developed by Precision Polymer Engineering (PPE). Fragments as small as 2mm can be identified by conventional, in-line, metal detection equipment.
The o-ring seals are available as FDA-compliant grades of EPDM, nitrile and fluorocarbon (FKM) elastomers, in blue and black, and in standard and non-standard sizes for use in bakery equipment.
