Elastomers for Food Water and Dairy

Food-grade Rubbers for Hygienic Industries

M Barnwell Services understand the specific and very demanding requirements sealing materials must meet in Food, Dairy, and Water industries. Over the last 50 years, we have gained knowledge and expertise in chemically resistant food grade elastomer seals for use with hostile media observed in Clean-in-Place (CIP) and Steam-in-Place (SIP) routines and high-temperature steam sterilisation. Elastomers for Food, Dairy, and Water offer excellent chemical resistance and mechanical capabilities. They are moulded from a broad selection of materials to suit any food processing application, including high-performance elastomers for the most challenging sealing environments. Food-grade seals must be able to withstand challenging operating environments and must be resistant to chemicals and low/high temperatures, abrasion, and able to cope with harsh cleaning cycles. Elastomers are available in various grades compliant with numerous requirements, standards, and regulations, which include:

Elastomers for Food Water and Dairy

United States Pharmacopeia (USP Class VI)
