Our seals and gaskets are high performance, blue, food grade and also minimise foreign body contamination risks by being detectable by metal detection systems and x-ray inspection systems. Current stocked gasket types include RJT O-Rings, Tri-Clamp Gaskets and DIN D-Rings (Milk Couplings).
The use of detectable seals and gaskets is a strong display of due diligence in the prevention of foreign body contamination. Seal fragments as small as 5mm³ can be identified by correctly calibrated inspection systems, although detection performance will vary based on the food being inspected, the equipment type and other parameters.
BST have 30 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of metal detectable and x-ray visible plastic components. Examples of bespoke projects include rubber seals, gaskets and extrusions, as well as pre-loaded vacuum bread depanner belts featuring metal detectable suction cups and retaining clips.
With a wide selection of food grade detectable raw materials to choose from, a solution to your problem is never far away.
BST Detectable Products reduce the risk of foreign body contamination in hygiene critical environments, such as food and drink, pharmaceutical or cosmetic manufacturing plants.
Preventing foreign body contamination is at the frontline of food safety and detectable products manufactured by BST not only help toward this goal but also comply with international regulations and complement a company's HACCP systems.
