3" Tri Clamp Viton 40 Mesh Screen Gaskets
These Viton screen gaskets are a practical purchase for anyone doing closed
loop BHO extractions as these gaskets are food grade and recognized as safe
Viton is capable of withstanding high temperatures while retaining its good
mechanical properties, and is better at it than most other elastomers. The oil
and chemical resistance are virtually unaffected by elevated temperatures, and
the compounds remain relatively elastic up to temperatures of 400F (204C) and
down to -40F (-40C).
The mesh screen is made from 316 stainless steel. The stainless steel mesh
screen supports a temperature up to 400F. The screen is woven, it can be
rolled, bent and put back in place with your bare hands. Screen gaskets are
great for using with an oil extractor, as it keeps the plant matter from
entering your final product.
Remember, when sizing the mesh screen for your filtration that the higher the
number mesh screen for your filtration that the higher number mesh the more
strands per inch, i.e. 150 mesh=150 strands across 1 inch.
