Sock Screen Gaskets

The main objective of a screen gasket is to eliminate the particulate in order to protect sterile products. In simpler words, they are used for the filtration purpose. Sock screen gaskets are special types of screen gaskets that are inserted and fitted in the internal diameter of the stainless steel tubing. These gaskets provide a greater soil filtration. As compared to the conventional screen gaskets, the sock screen gaskets have 300% more capability of soil collection. This makes them ideal for use especially in the lines having greater flow volumes and higher particular counts. SSP Manufacturing, Inc. is one of the leading manufacturers of sock screen gaskets in the USA.

Beneficial Features of the Sock Screen Gaskets

These types of screen gaskets are known for their several beneficial features. Here are the some major benefits:

    1. Superior Quality

The superior quality of these gaskets is owing to the following features:

      • These gaskets offer greater residual containment. This further helps ensure maximum quality control.
      • They are manufactured using FDA compliant materials, such as Viton®, EPDM, Buna-N, and Silicone compounds that are bonded to 316L stainless steel #16 mesh. This makes them durable.
      • The materials used in the sock screen gaskets meet all the cGMP and USP Class VI requirements. This makes them reliable.
      • These gaskets are specially designed to snug fit.

    1. Superior Performance

These gaskets deliver superior performance, thanks to the following features:

      • These gaskets have proven performance, and are tested on-site for their consistency
      • They can be fully reused for an average of 250 to 300 procedures.
      • As compared to the other conventional screening gaskets, the sock screen gaskets have 300% more stainless steel area.
      • These gaskets are extremely durable and eliminates the potential breakage and leaks in the lines.

    1. Superior Economy

Last, but not the least – they are also economical. The following factors make them an economical solution:

    • These screen gaskets help deliver smoother operation by increasing the unloading pressures.
    • As compared to their standard counterparts, these gaskets help reduce the unloading time by around 25%.
    • They are environmentally compatible, as well as easy to use.
    • The energy consumed after using these gaskets is lesser compared to the other gaskets. Besides this, the pump wear is also reduced significantly.

Applications of the Sock Screen Gaskets

The common applications of the sock screen gaskets are as follows:

  • Pump Protection
  • Tank to Tank Transfer
  • Inline Fluid Conditioning
  • Bulk Tank to Tank Truck Procedures
  • Tank Truck to Dairy Plant Intake Dock Procedures

These gaskets help increase the run time in the lines between cleaning and changing the standard screen gaskets. Another thing that adds to its popularity is the fact that these gaskets are free from animal-derived ingredients.
