NSF 51 and 61 Dual-Certified O-Rings
Make Sure Your Food Equipment Is Safe and Compliant
In the food equipment manufacturing industry, the performance of every single component is key to the success of your operation. O-rings provide an important function within any machinery, and you rely on their durability. If your O-rings fail, the integrity of your equipment’s seals are compromised and can become deformed. O-ring failure can occur when the materials used are not compatible with the conditions in which your equipment operates. O-rings can also fail due to abrasion if they are not designed to withstand excessive temperatures.
The answer to these problems is to choose a sealing solution from a company that can ensure your O-rings’ performance and durability. North Coast Seal offers our clients NSF 51 and 61–compliant O-rings. We use a certified compound that meets the requirements of both NSF 51 and 61, so you can be assured your operations are safe, compliant, and sanitary. You can use our products or utilize our NSF 51 and 61 compliant materials in your own standard or custom configurations.
What does it mean to say that an O-ring is NSF 51 and 61 dual certified? It means the rubber compound used has been tested by an independent laboratory and approved for use in food processing, or in any process where a material comes into contact with drinking water. Our dual-certified material is deemed safe and free of any contaminants that would not be considered safe.
