A widespread global concern is the risk of silicone particles from machinery contaminating products on the production line. This concern is widespread in manufacturing - particularly industries associated with food, drink and pharmaceuticals.
Metal detectable silicone rubber seals and gasket technology can quickly and efficiently be detected to prevent contamination. It will allow detection of any eroding particles entering the process line using in-line metal detection systems. The production process can be stopped quickly, the contaminated products are segregated and the process line is maintained to rectify the problem. Therefore, the risk of production downtime and probability of waste being produced is greatly reduced.
