Hydraulic & pneumatic seal

Sealing products for the food and beverage industry must meet several regulatory standards and requirements. With the ever-changing regulations of the FDA, suppliers struggle to meet stringent hygiene, safety, and durability requirements from the regulator. As the leading provider of custom quality seals and parts for the food and beverage industry, MSP offers FDA-compliant or food grade sealing products, including gaskets, O-rings, and seals. All our products are made from sturdy and durable materials, including virgin PTFE, EPDM, silicone, NBR and more.

Types of Food and Beverage Seals

There are myriads of seals designed for the food and beverage industry. MSP provides high-quality hydraulic and pneumatic seals specifically designed to meet the needs of food and beverage applications. These include:

Rod Wipers: Rod wipers are hydraulic seals designed to prevent contaminants or fluids from leaking into the application. These seals are typically installed as part of sealing configurations in hydraulic cylinders to prevent dirt, metallic chips, dust particles, moisture, and other contaminants from getting into the application.

Piston Rod Seals: These are hydraulic seals that prevent fluid from leaking in cylinders at the piston or rod gland. Leakage through the seals reduces equipment performance while potentially introducing a range of environmental issues and contaminants to products. MSP offers a variety of seals from both single-acting and double-acting systems.

Custom Molded Shapes: Custom Engineered seals help ensure your equipment and systems operate exactly as you expect. This can include boots, bellows, diaphragms, grommets, and other custom shapes. If you need a custom sealing solution for your facility, the experts at MSP Seals are here to help. Our custom sealing solutions are available in single pieces to high-volume production quantities. We also offer a variety of material options to suit different application requirements.

Application of Food and Beverage Seals

Food and beverage seals play an integral role in food packaging applications. No matter your market segment for your product, it is crucial that you find the best seals that are hygienic and durable while meeting the necessary regulatory requirements. In essence, ideal seals should prevent fluid leakage from the equipment while offering unmatched resistance to extreme temperatures, high pressures, and a range of forces within the cylinder. Some of the typical applications of food and beverage seals include:

  • Optimizing production in systems equipped with proof valves
  • Chemical resistance in couplings
  • Pipe connections for different market segments
  • Seals for beverage dispensers withstanding various temperatures

Selecting the Best Sealing Solution for Foods and Beverages

Choosing the ideal sealing solution for food and beverage processing can be a challenge, bearing in mind the many factors to consider. As mentioned earlier, food and beverage production and processing require a high degree of cleanliness and hygiene. The materials used on the processing equipment should not release any chemicals and substances to foodstuff. These risks can be effectively eliminated with the right choice of sealing solution. Some of the factors to consider when choosing a sealing solution for the food and beverage industry include:

  • The specific place where the seal will be used
  • The fluids and foods to which the seal will be exposed
  • The particular function of the sealing solution
  • Temperature and pressure exposure
  • Specific needs of the clients
