Gaskets and seals: Strengthening the Weakest Link
New materials and designs help seals and gaskets evolve into components that can overcome today’s CPI challenges

However, due to leaks and failures, seals and gaskets are often considered the weakest link in chemical processing systems. But seal manufacturers are strengthening this link via new materials and designs in an effort to make seals and gaskets as robust as the rest of the system.
