The Torque-Rite Nut allows you to control compression and expansion while maintaining constant inch/pounds force insuring a Perfect Surface I.D. when used with a Rubber Fab sanitary gasket!
Torque-Rite eliminates the problems associated with over Ð or under-tightening a gasket which can lead to an unsanitary system.
Compression control is easy!
When tightened, the Torque-Rite's self-limiting internal mechanism will make an audible "click" signaling the user they have reached proper inch/pounds force. If further tightening is attempted, there will be more "clicks" but no additional application of force on the gasket (if emergency conditions arise, the Torque-Rite has a built-in manual override feature).
Problems with over-tightening or under-tightening a gasket:
Over-tightening can tear or damage a gasket and can also cause a damming effect inside the pipeline. A torn or extruded gasket can hold soil and bacteria. Under-tightening leaves an undesirable concave area at the gasket allowing soil and bacteria to become entrapped. Both conditions should be avoided in a sanitary system.
Maintaining a "Perfect Surface" Sanitary System.
By maintaining a constant force on a Perfect Surface Gasket with the Torque-Rite, gasket I.D. is maintained lowering bacteria count and enhancing product integrity. A Perfect Surface sanitary system is assured. Clamp sold separately.

"I received the cart yesterday, thanks for the fast delivery! It feels sturdy. I sat on it. It does not bounce. It is also easy to clean and wipe or wash down."
Vice President, Analytical Development and Manufacturing
"Thanks again for reacting so quickly and meeting me halfway with the element. We will be able to get installed and have things keep moving overnight with the night crew. The little things like this are always greatly appreciated when working with Liquidyne."
“This pump cut our processing time from 3 days to 1 shift. I’m not giving this pump back. You will have to come and get it if you want it... and that won’t likely happen.”
