A BETTER WAY TO SEAL THREADS

CASES-Food-safe-plant-case-02-Challenge

A food manufacturing customer used thread tape to seal its stainless-steel pipe fittings, but quickly began the search for a replacement when hanging tape resulted in a less than satisfactory report. The tape also resulted in frequent leaks and posed contamination risks during the tightening process as it sometimes shreds, entering the system.

SEALED, SAFE AND SECURE

Henkel Adhesive Technologies’ LOCTITE® team recommended LOCTITE® thread sealants. This met the customer’s needs in every way – complying with food processing quality standards while helping to prevent leak-causing vibrations, shock loads, or galling.
