Transforming Dry Food Processing: SEPCO’s SAS Air Seal Technology


In the world of dry food processing, where blending and processing of ingredients is a daily routine, maintaining hygiene and efficiency is critical. Traditional sealing methods, often involving FDA-approved packing, have been the norm for years. However, these methods come with their own set of challenges, including the frequent need for replacement and the time-consuming maintenance they demand. Enter the SEPCO SAS air seal technology, a game-changer that promises to revolutionize the industry with its innovative approach.

What is SEPCO SAS Air Seal Technology?

The SEPCO SAS air seal technology is a cutting-edge solution designed for the dry food processing industry. Constructed with FDA-approved materials, it offers an alternative to traditional braided packing seals. The SAS stands out by using an air barrier to contain dry blended products during processing, effectively sealing the materials without physical contact. This non-contact sealing method not only enhances the seal’s longevity but also significantly reduces the maintenance time between batches.

The Operational Excellence of SAS

One of the most compelling aspects of the SAS technology is its operational efficiency. During the processing of dry food products, the SAS air seal creates an effective barrier that contains these products, preventing leakage and contamination. This is particularly beneficial for facilities that handle a variety of dry blended products, as it ensures a clean and safe processing environment.

Ease of Cleaning and Maintenance

Perhaps the most striking feature of the SEPCO SAS air seal is its ease of cleaning and maintenance. Traditional sealing methods often require disassembly for thorough cleaning, a process that can be both time-consuming and labor-intensive. The SAS, however, simplifies this process remarkably. Users can inject hot water or any FDA-approved cleaning materials directly through the SAS air supply port. This allows for a thorough cleaning of the seal components without the need for disassembly. Once the cleaning process is complete, restoring the air supply dries the seal and prepares it for the next batch, streamlining the cleaning process and significantly reducing downtime.

The Benefits of SAS Air Seal Technology

The adoption of SEPCO’s SAS air seal technology brings numerous benefits to the dry food processing industry. Firstly, it significantly reduces the need for frequent replacements of traditional packing, offering a more sustainable and cost-effective solution. Secondly, the non-contact nature of the air seal minimizes wear and tear, extending the lifespan of the seal and the equipment. Furthermore, the ease of cleaning and maintenance ensures that the processing equipment can be quickly and efficiently prepared for the next batch, enhancing overall productivity.


The SEPCO SAS air seal technology represents a significant advancement in the dry food processing industry. Its innovative design and operational benefits offer a compelling alternative to traditional sealing methods. By reducing maintenance time, extending equipment lifespan, and ensuring a high level of hygiene, the SAS air seal technology sets a new standard for efficiency and reliability in food processing. As the industry continues to evolve, technologies like the SEPCO SAS air seal are leading the way, promising a cleaner, safer, and more efficient future for food processing.
