Smart Gasket

Rubber Fab's Smart Gasket's* value is proven when validating sterility in a high-purity pharmaceutical system. Your standard sanitary flange utilizing the Smart Gasket" is used to obtain the critical thermal mapping information you need during the validation process.

Smart Gasket* easily installs between two sanitary standard flanges using the Rubber Fab sanitary Smart Clamp to secure the flanges. Our clamp provides up to four internal ports for accepting the Smart Gasket* thermocouple samples or accessories; i.e. ACC-T or K-199-S-Shorl Temperature Probe; ACC-T or K-199A-L-Long Temperature Probe.

Choose between Rubber Fab’s Thermocouple Gasket or select the Smart Gasket1 Spore Trap to securely retain spore challenge test strips. There is also a sampler device available that utilizes standard luer lock fittings. Meter fluids in your process system utilizing a peristaltic pump or withdraw sam pies utilizing our luer lock sampler and luer lock valve or syringe.

Smart Gasket* with Smart Clamp is available in 1/2", 3/4", 1". 1-1/2", 2", 3" and 4" sizes and fits standard Tri-Clover™, Top Line™, Waukesha™ and G&H™ sanitary flanges. Choose between USDA, FDA grade FPDM, platinum- cured silicone, FKM and other elastomers (consult factory for larger sizes).
Unit of Measure


Spore Trap

N/A Combined with the Smart Gasket* Thermocouple Gasket, an accurate integration of sterilization and spore strip is practical. 1, 2, 3 and 4 internal ports are available when utilizing the spore strip Smart Gasket". All this is accomplished without adding special fittings or weld-ments and is easily installed into your sanitary systems.

Rubber Fab's Smart Gasket* with Spore Trap holder is available with and without a thermocouple port.

Criti Clean Pack

N/A Rubber Fab gaskets are WFI cleaned and dried utilizing filtered nitrogen in a Class 100 clean room. Our ready-to-use Criti Clean gasket kit is packaged in a see-through "Vis-U-AH II" pack equipped with temperature indicator dots that show completed sterilization when steam or gas sterilized.

The Criti Clean Pack is available in a package of 1, 6, 12 or 24 gaskets and can be custom assembled in a kit conforming to your specific change out requirements.
