The Removable TFM is a gasket we developed because of its unique mechanical properties. The gasket is made out of two mating parts. In between these two parts you can place any kind of product as long as it is no thicker than 1.00 mm. Products like orifice plates, screens and perforated discs can be used.
The Removable TFM gasket can be dismantled after use, cleaned and reassembled again without any problem. Perfect if a screen needs to be cleaned. Orifice plates can be exchanged rapidly. Sock screens which cannot be supplied with a PTFE-seal can now be equipped with a TFM seal.

If we want to install an orifice plate with a thickness of 1.00 mm, we use the setup with two mating parts both consisting of a 0.50 mm chamber. These two chambers add up to 1.00 mm. Carefully locate the centre chamber, place the orifice plate inside and click the two gasket halves together so they lock.
If we want to install a screen with a thickness of 0.45 mm, we use the setup with two mating parts one with a 0.50 mm chamber and one without, so flat. Carefully locate the centre chamber, place the screen inside and click the two gasket halves together so they lock.
