Case Study: Saturated Steam Autoclaves - GYLON® 3504 BIO-PRO®

Before working with Garlock, the customer used virgin PTFE sanitary gaskets in all of their hygienic couplings. However, due to high content of saturated steam used in these systems, the gaskets were undergoing physical deformation and increased porosity. The result was rapid seal degradation with average performance life falling well shorter than their typical 18 months recommended replacement periods.
