Standard FDA and USP Class VI compliant materials for all types of hygienic connections
Sanitary clamp gaskets are commonly used in the industry in critical applications. FDA inspectors and the pharmaceutical industry are focused on any potential area of contamination.
Perfect sealing is the way to use a sanitary gasket. Often, failure of a gaskets has to do with the use of materials and achieving a perfect sealing. Thus we offer solutions for wide range of gaskets for different connection standards for different applications in FDA and USP Class VI compliant materials.

Achieving the right Torque for the Perfect Sealing
See how it works!
Working much like a sanitary clamp wrench, The Torque Tee and Socket works to make a perfectly torqued seal in minutes
Perfect for tight places!
Rubber Fab’s Torque Tee and universal socket are designed to aid in clamp installation and removal. Available with a family of components, the Torque Tee handle creates effective tightening leverage and aids in reaching tight spaces, including over head and behind tanks. The universal socket is required when using the Torque Tee.
Rubber Fab is pleased to offer the Torque Tee in Chrome Plated! Same great features and now with a chrome plated handle. Available in 30 in/lb and 50 in/lbs. Consult factory for other torques.

See how it works!
A system begins to fail when a gasket begins to leak. The traditional answer is to tighten the clamp to eliminate the leak. You believe you are fixing the problem, but in reality, you are creating a greater problem. Watch this short video to see how the Smart Clamp™ can solve that problem!
The “HALF-TURN” Sanitary Smart Clamp™
From “Up-time” to Ergonomics
- Dramatically increased up-time
- Perfect Surface I.D.
- Half-Turn installation
- Repetitive stress/ergonomic benefits
- Compression control
- Multiple compression settings
- Guaranteed gasket alignment
- Deeper clamp channel nests ferrules and evenly distributes force on the gasket
- Threadless system prevents soil and bacterial entrapment
- Clamp hinge will not collapse
- No tools needed
The Ergonomic design and “Half-Turn” installation decrease working conditions that are known to result in Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI)
Common examples of RSI are:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
- Trigger Finger
DO NOT SUBMERSE OR CLEAN THE SMART CLAMP™ WITH BLEACH
BLEACH IS KNOWN TO BE HIGHLY CORROSIVE TO STAINLESS STEEL
SUBMERSING SMART CLAMPS CAN INTERFERE WITH THE INTERNAL MECHANISM
Easy Adjust Dial Settings
For most gaskets, a Smart Clamp setting of 2 is sufficient to seal but if more torque is desired, increase the setting and re-tighten.
Does Not Collapse Backward
Visual Indicator lets you know the Smart Clamp™ is fully engaged and installed when arrows are aligned!

Compression control is made easy with the Torque-Rite®
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 – 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.
