Beverage Dispensing Overview
Beverage Dispenser applications are common at industrial bottling plants. Some of these bottling applications have highly concentrated flavors that are extremely acidic and can cause damage to typical rubber compounds. Components within dispensers include: valves, pumps, seals, filters and o-rings.
Beverage Dispensing Application Requirements
Beverage Dispenser applications require specially formulated rubber compounds engineered to meet the application sealing performance requirements as well as stringent worldwide certifications. Minnesota Rubber and Plastics combines material compound development leadership with superior product design expertise to deliver unmatched solutions for the beverage dispensing market.
