Inflatable Smokehouse Door Seals
The inflatable seal is mounted on the door to expand radially out and make a smoke-tight seal against the door frame. For houses operating under normal conditions, EPDM rubber is used. For applications requiring extra high temperatures, Silicone seals are recommended; and, if there are unusually high concentrations of animal fats, Nitrile rubber is the elastomer of choice.
Variable Lid Wine Tank Seals
For wineries using variable capacity fermentation tanks, inflatable seals are especially important to ensure airtight lids during the delicate fermentation process. As lids sometimes do not fit exactly, inflatable seals provide for a snug fit, regardless of the height of the lid in the tank. Winemakers can be assured that their wine will reach its fullest potential using inflatable seals.
