­Kopfdichtungen aus EPDM

These are seals on membrane loops for cleaning process waters. They are not gaskets on cars!

English translation:saddle seal
Explanation:
I found this reference:

The PIK 300 is a 300 mm (12") diameter flexible membrane disc diffuser manufactured of a special blend of EPDM material that is designed specifically for wastewater applications. The body of the PIK 300 is made of polypropylene. This provides excellent chemical and thermal properties for the most challenging environments. The EPDM diffuser element is sealed to the diffuser body with a special sliding-seal ring that never needs to be lubricated.

The site features a picture and an itemized list, including a "saddle seal."

Now really hooked on the subject,I started looking for "saddle seals" ,found some cute pictures of marine animals and finally came across this site:
http://www.uicorp.net/kinblasaddle.htm.
listing various uses and advantages of a particular type of saddle seal.
Hope this is of some help to you. I enjoyed the surfing!

Hello Johanna,

sorry it took a while, but I cannot access that site you gave. I've been trying since yesterday but can only get the main page. After that I can't find the product. Thanks for your help though, and I'll use it as a starting point at least.
