Type 5282 is part of the 5280 hygienic vessel seal family. Please find general technical and hygienic design features of this family in the description of Type 5280. The Type 5282 was developed for applications on reaction vessels made of special alloys or metals such as Hastelloy® or titanium. As these materials are very expensive, their usage for adaptive seal hardware was reduced to a minimum. Due to the special design features of the 5280 seal family, this could be achieved by splitting the flange into two parts. The larger part containing all fittings and connections is made of stainless steel, whereas a smaller flange insert designed to cover all product-wetted flange surfaces is made of the corresponding special metal. All other components and features are similar to Type 5280.
