Sanitary Tri-Clamp Gaskets & Essential Oil Extractor Gaskets
Sanitary gaskets are primarily used to seal clamp connections in sanitary pipe lines. They are equipped with a tri-clamp ferrule, pipe coupling and clamp to provide a simple installation process. Among others, sanitary tri-clover gaskets are typically used within the dairy, biotech, food & beverage and cannabis & essential oil extraction industries.
In addition, the tri clamp elastomer core ensures good elasticity of the seal as well as good sealing duration, so it holds up well even in trying conditions. These extremely useful sanitary tri-clamp fittings are available in numerous material options and are available with or without a screen.
When utilizing sanitary tri-clamp gaskets for your project requirements, they need to be able to hold up to rigorous manufacturing processes and harsh environments. The terms tri clover clamp seals and tri-clamp gaskets can be intermingled and refer to the same thing.

Material Options for Sanitary Gaskets
Sanitary tri clover gaskets need to hold up to rigorous manufacturing processes and harsh environments. When choosing a sanitary clamp gasket for your sanitary pipe lines, it’s important to understand the properties of the elastomer that your gasket is made from. Ace Seal draws from more than 30 years of experience to help you select the right seal material for your application. Available sanitary tri-clamp seal elastomers include:
Our FKM tri-clamp sanitary gaskets are made from a specialty elastomer material that is engineered to withstand high temperatures while retaining its mechanical qualities. FKM sanitary gaskets are more resistant to a greater variety of fluids and chemicals than those made of other, non-fluorinated elastomers. FDA/3A approved options are available. These food grade gaskets are ideal for temperatures ranging from 25°C (-13°F) to +204°C (399°F).
Ace Seal’s FKM sanitary gasket material also provides the following beneficial features:
- Low gas permeability
- High temperature, ozone & weather resistance
- Low compression set
- Corrosive fluid resistance
- Good mechanical properties
Ace Seal’s aseptic silicone santiray gaskets are manufactured from stable, non-reactive materials that are resistant to heat, fungus, sunlight, ozone, and weathering. Our silicone sanitary gaskets can perform in extreme temperatures from -55° to 300°C (-67° to 572°F) without losing their useful properties. Medical grade, FDA/3A/Class VI approved silicone gasket materials are available.
In addition, our silicone tri clover seals offer the following added benefits:
- Low resistance to mineral oils
- Extreme temperature ranges
- Resistant to animal fats & oils
- Extremely clean
- FDA Certified
Nitrile sanitary gaskets and nitrile tri-clamp gaskets can withstand temperature extremes from -40° to 108°C (-40° to 226°F) with no loss of performance. Our Buna-N gasket material is highly resistant to a range of chemicals, including oil, gasoline, engine coolants, silicone greases, hydraulic fluids, and alcohols. FDA/3A approved Buna-N materials are also available.
Additional nitrile featured benefits, include:
- Excellent resistance to petroleum-based oils & fuels
- Low compression set
- High tensile strength
- High abrasion resistance
- FDA Certified
Also known as ethylene-polypropylene, EPDM is one of the most durable synthetic rubber materials available. EPDM sanitary gaskets and EPDM tri-clamp gaskets are resistant to steam, hot water, sunlight, silicone oils and greases, dilute acids, and automotive brake fluids. The material is ideal for extreme cold environments (as low as -60°C/-76°F), outdoor equipment, and other challenging applications. FDA approved EPDM gasket materials are available.
Ace Seal’s EPDM sanitary clamps also feature the following added benefits:
- High temperature resistance
- Compression set resistance
- Excellent resistance to ozone & weathering
- Good resistance to acids & solvents
Tri-Clamp Gaskets for Cannabis & Essential Oils Extraction
With the use of medicinal marijuana on the rise and an increased demand for essential oil products, the companies that manufacture these products need a sanitary pipe line system for proper cannabis oil and essential oil extraction. A major contributing factor that assists in safely delivering cannabis and essential oils through sanitary pipe lines are the aseptic tri-clamp seals and gaskets. The gaskets ability to properly seal clamp connections prevents costly leaking. Additionally, most of the products we sell to the cannabis industry are FDA Certified.
