Let’s get critical

Introducing the GYLON® BIO-PRO Plus™

Life-saving medications and microwaveable burritos don’t seem like they would have much in common. When it comes to the processing facilities that handle these seemingly disparate products, however, the need for hygiene and material purity differ little between the two.

Contamination can be just as disastrous at a refried bean processing facility as it would at a pharmaceutical plant, and one of the frontline safeguards against contamination are the gaskets that seal one pipe length to another.

Ensuring impeccable, uncompromising sealing integrity and material purity were the driving motivations behind the development of our new BIO-PRO Plus™ sanitary gasket. Introduced this month, it delivers best-in-class performance across all critical sealing criteria, including compliance, chemical compatibility, sealability, creep and cold flow.

Built using our proprietary GYLON® Style 3522 modified PTFE, the new BIO-PRO Plus™ eliminates gasket intrusion and recession, two of the main causes of contamination. It also offers universal chemical resistance, including CIP and SIP products, making it ideal for nearly every critical processing application.
