Is there a sealant out there that is FDA approved, temp rated, and washable? I have to install temp probes for my solenoids, and I need a way to seal them up in the bottom of my sight glasses. Help.
Why yes, yes I am a metrosexual!

Food grade silicone caulk/sealant should handle the high temps just fine.
