Process adapters are used for the reliable connection of sensors in process technology. The sealing between adapter and sensor is usually made via O-rings. Only the suitable sealing within the adapter ensures reliable and maintenance-free functioning of the entire system. Not only the suitable size but also the material is essential for the selection of the seal for the process adapter.
Selecting the material of seals
The seals, e.g. for Aseptoflex Vario process adapters, are available in different materials depending on the application:
The EPDM material is known for its resistance to high temperatures as well as acids and alkalis so that it is one of the sealing materials most frequently used in the food industry. FKM (Viton) is recommended for applications in which the seal could come into contact with oils, fats and lubricants. The very robust PEEK material is highly resistant to almost all media and can also be used in a wide temperature range.
