These viton screen gaskets
are a practical purchase for anyone doing essential oil extractions with butane as they offer an incredibly high resistance to oils, fuels,
lubricants and most mineral acids. These gaskets meet today’s sanitary
standards for the sanitary industry.


Viton
was first introduced in the 1950’s for the aerospace industry to
fulfill the need for a high performance sealing elastomer. Since then,
viton has maintained a reputation for its outstanding performance in
extreme heat and extremely corrosive environments.


Viton
offers an exceptionally high resistance to compression set, even at
high temperatures. It is known to have an exceptionally good resistance
to oxidation, sun and weather, along with an excellent resistance to
fungus and mold.


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 indefinitely
up to temperatures of 400° F (204° C). 


The mesh screen is made from 316 Stainless Steel. The stainless steel mesh screen supports a temperature up to +400° F. 
Stainless
Steel mesh screens are excellent for strong acids, petroleum products,
solvents and oil, but does really poorly when using hydrocarbons or
steam. 
The
screen is 100 mesh, meaning there are 100 wires per inch. Because it is
woven, it can be rolled, bent and put back in place with your bare
hands. 100 mesh gaskets are great for using with an oil extractor, as it
keeps the plant matter from entering your final product
