All Cynergy products are made from specially chosen resins that meet industry needs for handling highly corrosive environments, saturated steam and cleaning chemicals.
All internal wetted surfaces are made from resins that comply with FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.1550 (perfluorocarbon resins as articles or components of articles intended for use in contact with food). These resins also comply with the criteria in 3-A Standards for Multiple-use Plastic Materials Used as Product Contact Surfaces for Dairy Equipment, Number 20-17, and USP Class VI Biologics Criteria.
External surfaces may also include PEEK and PES materials, high performance, FDA approved engineering grade polymers that are well suited to meet your application requirements.
For complete chemical compatibility and mechanical capabilities, refer to Section 1 of the Cynergy System Technical Guide.
Gasket and Clamp Recommendations
Laboratory testing of Cynergy clamp fittings shows performance reliability is dependent on the type of clamp and gasket used. Entegris strongly recommends the use of Tri-Clamp® two-piece clamps for 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" sizes, and Tri-Clamp three-piece clamps for 1", 1 1/2" and 2" sizes. Entegris also recommends the use of EPDM sanitary gaskets by Tri-Clover® or Newman with our Cynergy clamp fittings. In-house testing has been performed on other high performance gasket materials with favorable results. Contact your local Entegris distributor or Entegris, Inc. for a recommendation.
