VMQ 714177

ERIKS compound 714177 can be used at low and high temperatures and is suited for contact with air/oxygen.

Because of the mechanical properties, we recommend using silicone O-rings for static applications only. 

714177 complies with FDA, EC1935/2004 and Chinese Food Regulations.

Hygienic Seal Design Considerations

Square section O-ring grooves are unsuitable in most applications due to the risk of bug traps. Proven hygienic coupling designs are readily available including: hygienic clamp seals, DIN 11851 D-Seals, O-Rings for DIN 11864 and BS 4825 part 5 RJT fittings, SMS and ISO 2853 couplings.

Further design guidelines are published by the ASME-BPE (American Society of Mechanical Engineers Bio Processing Equipment guidelines) and the EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group) which look beyond the seal material and consider the seal in its operating environment.


Leader Gasket Technologies, part of the ERIKS group, is one of the leading manufacturers of flat gaskets. New, innovative materials and seal designs are constantly being developed for applications in sterile processes.

Fluid Power, transfer and control

Food industry hoses - what do you have to look out for? And what differences are there between connections? Hygiene, cleaning and durability requirements for hoses and their components are extremely high. Our broad and extensive product range of both in-house and partner brands offers you a complete selection. Custom-made industrial hoses are manufactured in our own production facility.

Applications: dairy products, animal fats, vegetable oils or fruit juices.

Goodall® Nutralon

The Goodall® Nutralon product range (D, SD, SD Lite, SD Plus) covers a wide selection of hoses for the food industry and complies with EC 1935/2004 - EU 10/2011, FDA, BfR, USDA and 3-A standards. The flexible hoses are easy to clean and prevent bacterial growth thanks to their smooth inner lining. Nutralon hoses are provided with batch numbers along the entire hose to ensure traceability at all times. The hoses are equipped with hygienic stainless steel push-in couplings.

Applications: beer, soft drinks, wine and beverages with high alcohol content.

Purpur Beer hose

The Purpur is the standardised beer hose. ERIKS provides the hose with pressed couplings for maximum hygiene and easy sanitation. Purpur withstands the toughest cleaning conditions and guarantees a long service life. The hose complies with EC1935/2004 regulations. 

An extremely flexible hose for moving applications or the highest hygiene requirements.

Bioflex PTFE hose

The Bioflex is the most innovative PTFE hose. Due to its unique patented construction, the hose is internally smooth, ultraflexible, almost impossible to kink (prevents blockages even at small bending radius) and easy to clean. The hose is available with a food-safe rubber outer wall for hygienic conditions. Bioflex complies with EC1935/2004, EU 10/2011 and FDA.

Wear-resistant food-safe hose for dry substances, suitable for static discharge.

Abraflex MD-Food AS-INOX

Abraflex MD-Food AS-INOX is characterised by its unique combination of food safety and conductivity. The innovative polyurethane hose is highly abrasion resistant, easy to handle and safe for use with abrasive and flammable powders in EX-zones. 

DuraCrimp® FOOD

The match between hose and coupling is crucial for the overall functionality, hygienic properties and service life of the system.

The most hygienic way of attaching a coupling to a hose is by pressing or crimping. Goodall® DuraCrimp® FOOD is an innovative, hygienic and safe pressure system for the food industry. This concept, developed by ERIKS, connects Goodall® food hoses to custom-fitted hose couplings and sleeves. This ensures a seamless, leak-free connection without dead spaces.

Pneumatics for food environments

We regularly come across pneumatics that are not suitable for use in a particular working environment. Excessive moisture, corrosion or contamination can cause valves and cylinders to malfunction: hoses harden or rupture, couplings corrode - causing seals to deteriorate and leak.

ERIKS offers an extensive range of pneumatic products especially for the food industry that:

  • Meet food safety standards
  • Are corrosion resistant
  • Are suitable for aggressive cleaning agents
  • Withstand extreme temperatures


Festo stainless steel cylinder CRDSNU

This round, stainless steel cylinder is ideal in applications where parts are exposed to extreme conditions (including aggressive cleaning) or where strict regulations apply. 

  • Built in EHEDG compliance
  • FDA approved

Norgren Pressure Sensor Series 34D 

Pneumatic Hydraulic electronic pressure sensor, the unit is suitable for food, beverage and process control environments with high overpressure resistance.

  • The unit is suitable for harsh industrial and process control environments with high overpressure resistance

Norgren KM/8000/M Stainless Steel Actuator

Round cylinder specially developed for the food industry. Very suitable for the most critical applications due to the very fine stainless steel, electro-polished surface and the absence of dead spaces.

Flow Control

EU 10/2011 migration test

All valve components that come into contact with food are subjected to a migration test. This ensures that no, or only a defined number of, substances are transferred when in contact with food products. The three main concerns:

1. The supplied components are tested for the migration of harmful substances

2. The selected simulants correspond to the food items for which the component is used

3. Test temperature and test duration represent the process for which the component is used

All ERIKS valves and fittings with EC1935/2004 or FDA approval are supplied with the corresponding Declaration of Compliance.

Take a look at the migration test results of both stainless steel and plastic components of the ECON ball valve.

Test method applied

Stainless steel parts - CM/RES[2013]9

Migration test results

TF 4215 seat - EU-10/2011 [EN1186-1,-2,-3].

ECON® Ball valves

The ball valves comply with EC1935/2004 and FDA regulations and have passed all compulsory migration tests. The valves operate at pressures up to 100 bar within a temperature range of -50 °C to +250 °C. ECON Ball valves are available with flange, threaded or welded connections. 


  • V-port balls (30°, 60° and 90°) for modular applications
