O-Ring Sizing Cones
O-Ring measurement cones are the ideal tool for quick and easy identification of standard AS568 O-Ring sizes. The base of the cone has 5 slots to determine the o-ring width. Just slide the o-ring over the cone to identify the corresponding dash #. Dash Numbers are permanently molded into steps around the cone for precise identification. Cones are in stock and available for purchase.
X-ray and metal detection systems provide confidence to food, dairy and pharmaceutical manufacturers by insuring product safety and integrity as outlined by the Food Safety Modernization Act. Developing an effective inspection program to detect contaminants and to monitor the consistency and quality of product helps avoid product waste, recalls, costly down time and customer complaints. State of the art metal detection and x-ray inspection systems help ensure product and package integrity by identifying contaminants, scanning for missing or broken products, detecting packing voids, confirming fill levels and controlling product and package mass and fat analysis. The entire Detectomer® family of products can be detected in use with packaging and product that includes glass, metal, stone, and high-density plastics, even for products packaged in foil or metalized film.
*Note: Silicone Metal Detectable/X-ray Inspectable O-Rings have a temperature range of -70°F to 390°F.
