Metal Detectable O-Rings

Metal detectable o-rings are crucial to pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries. In the event of a metal detectable o-ring disintegrating, it is identified by a metal detector or X-ray before going too far through the production system.

Generally, o-ring fragments as small as 2 mm can be identified by detecting equipment. This allows for manual or magnetic removal of fragments, ensuring product safety and compliance with FDA regulations. Without using metal detectable o-rings in production, a piece of rubber can easily go unnoticed. This can cause costly repercussions, especially if a recall is required.

Metal Detectable O-Ring Materials

Metal detectable o-rings are available in a variety of materials, including:

  • Buna (Nitrile)
  • Viton®
  • Ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM)
  • Silicone
  • And more

They are designed to perform similarly to conventional elastomer o-rings with regards to tolerance for high and low temperatures, mechanical stress, and resistance to corrosive chemicals.

Metal Detectable O-Rings Temperature Range:

Typically, temperature range variation in metal detectable o-ring is minimal, and maintain the attributes of their parent compounds without metal additives.
