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.
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.
