FEATURES OF THE COLORGRIP GASKET

The ColorGrip R gasket is the most comprehensive sanitary gasket designed with a compression stop, color coding, and alignment aid for accurate assembly providing the ultimate assurance for alignment, Component Segregation, and it will eliminate issues caused by gasket intrusion.

Flow Smart Inc. has created the ideal marriage of polymers by combining a rigid mechanical stop comprised of a medical grade plastic, interlinked with our premier pedigree of elastomers engineered to provide the ideal hygenic seal. It is proven to achieve extended life with process fluids and steam applications.

SEAMLESS TRANSITION IN A STANDARD CLAMP CONNECTION

Achieving a clean contact surface is critical to high purity processing. The ColorGrip R is engineered to replace a conventional clamp gasket and prevent overtightening to establish an ideal elastomer to stainless steel transition at the sealing location.

With the ColorGrip the elastomer will not extrude into the inside diameter of the process pipeline. The ColorGrip accomplishes our goal by combining a hard stop with an elastomer. The rigid surface limits the load that the elastomer would typically be subject to.

IT GRIPS!

The GRIPPING feature will make gasket assemblies more efficient. The ColorGrip will stay in place while you use your hands to make up the assembly, helping to ensure the ideal alignment. This also limits the possibility of gaskets falling on process floors.

WHY COLORS?

The ColorGrip Gasket enables users to segregate process lines by color coding or to design SOP programs as an aid to control maintenance changes.
