Pipetite provides a flexible, sanitary seal around pipe and tube, without the headache of wall plates. Unlike metal wall plates or escutcheons, Pipetite is completely flexible, so it stays in place and maintains a seal despite pipeline vibration and movement. Pipetite Standard is ideal for new tubing installations where the boot can slide over the end of tubing before it is installed. Pipetite ReBoot is designed specifically for easy installation around existing piping. Pipetite Flat was designed for jacketed tank installations and other hard-to-fit spaces, although its applications are endless. Pipetite Grommet and Mini Grommet are ideal for creating watertight seals around wires and tubing as they enter cabinets, panels, and enclosures.
Pipetite®: The Flexible Sanitary Seal for Gaps Between Walls
An escutcheon plate is the disc around a plumbing pipe at the wall penetration that seals the wall opening. The photo above shows a chrome escutcheon plate where the water supply pipe for a toilet enters the wall. You will also find escutcheon plates at the pipe penetrations under sinks and behind water heaters.
In a sanitary processing facility, it is crucial to ensure that the environment is safe, secure, and clean. Without the right tools, closing gaps that occur where pipes penetrate through walls and floors becomes a difficult and costly problem. Unwanted openings expose a facility to dust and dirt, providing a breeding ground for bacteria and pests.
