Effective sealing to STAMP out contamination in dairy

Effective sealing to STAMP out contamination in dairy

Elastomeric sealing components for industrial use are expected to perform reliably in the face of some extreme operating environments


High temperatures and pressures are key markers of oil and gas exploration and production, with chemical processing facilities exposing elastomer seals to highly aggressive chemical compounds -all of which can have significant impacts on the lifetime and performance of these seals. In dairy production, the degradation of a sealing element can greatly increase the risk of contamination.By following the STAMPS method, it is possible to minimize this hygiene risk to dairy produce by ensuring the safest possible process lines. STAMPS is a helpful mnemonic for the six key considerations we need to make when sealing for dairy process applications - Size, Temperature, Application, Media, Pressure and Speed.
