FlowSmart precision engineered PolyClamp EPDM gaskets retain their geometric stability even after repeat steam-in-place (SIP) cycles. Formulated for SIP stability in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, FlowSmart’s innovative functionality ensures that the gaskets do not compromise critical high-purity processes and, importantly, do not trap bacteria—a trait common in other types of EPDM gaskets due to deformation. FlowSmart’s EPDM material ensures clean, intact removal with no trace of the elastomer material finding its way into the process fluid. Designed in accordance with ASME-BPE standards, PolyClamp EPDM gaskets are USP Class VI certified and are available in ten size options from 0.5–8” unflanged, and in eight flanged size options from 1–8”.
