Presenting Rubber Fab's Perfect Surface Gasket System. The perfect union of Torque- Rite and the Perfect Surface® Gasket.

Torque-Rite allows you to control compression and expansion while maintaining constant inch/pounds force insuring a Perfect Surface ID when used with a Perfect Surface Gasket. Torque-Rile eliminate the problems associated with over- or under-tightening a gasket which can lead to an unsanitary system.

Compression control is easy!
When tightened, the Torque-Rite's self-limiting internal mechanism will make an audible "click" signaling the user they have reached proper inch/pounds force. If further tightening is attempted, there will be more "click" but no additional application of force on the gasket (if emergency conditions arise, the Torque-Rite has a built-in manual override feature.

Problems with over-tightening or under-tightening a gasket:
Over-tightening can tear or damage a gasket and can also cause a damming effect inside the pipeline. A torn or extruded gasket can hold soil and bacteria. Under- tightening leaves an undesirable concave area at the gasket allowing soil and bacteria to become entrapped. Both conditions should be avoided in a sanitary system.

Maintaining a "Perfect Surface" Sanitary System.
By maintaining a constant force on a Perfect Surface Gasket with the Torque-Rite, gasket I.D. is maintained lowering bacteria count and enhancing product integrity. A Perfect Surface sanitary system is assured.

NOTE:
All elastomeric gaskets require periodic replacement. Gasket life is influenced by the gasket material, product application, temperature, cleaning procedures, etc. After monitoring gasket condition in a process system, a schedule should be developed for periodic replacement of gaskets.
