In sanitary applications, diaphragm seal systems ensure a safe and precise tabs on the procedure pressure. WIKA therefore offers welded units of diaphragm seal and measuring instrument with TRI-CLAMPï¿½ connection for process integration. A combination of this reference to easy-to-clean NovAsepticï¿½ connecting pieces is possible without further modification.
Diaphragm seal systems from WIKA with TRI-CLAMPï¿½ connection for sanitary applications
The TRI-CLAMPï¿½ connection is widely used in sanitary applications. It really is used, among other things, for tanks and similar vessels. In comparison to other process connections because of this industry, e.g. DIN 11864-2 flange connections, the TRI-CLAMPï¿½ is a compact and lightweight component. The fantastic advantage of this kind of connection is its simple handling. Measuring instruments are installed, without tools, utilizing a clamp connection.
In order to be able to integrate the TRI-CLAMPï¿½ into the process, a connecting nozzle of the same size is required as a counterpart. In this manner, yet another hollow body is created on the vessel. Here, ไดอะแฟรม can arise through the process due to air inclusions or gas bubbles. Thus, an elevated cleaning effort is essential to minimise the potential risks.
Rapid cleaning processes
NovAsepticï¿½ connecting pieces certainly are a hygienic alternative to this. The adapter for the TRI-CLAMPï¿½ connection is welded directly into the surface of the vessel, the ferrule is fixed with head nuts. When installed correctly, the connecting nozzle welded in flush to the tank wall ensures a link without dead space. This fulfils an important prerequisite for effective and, concurrently, rapid CIP/SIP processes.
All diaphragm seal systems, along with other WIKA measuring instruments, with conventional TRI-CLAMPï¿½ connections can be installed with NovAsepticï¿½ fittings without the modification measures. Generally, WIKA diaphragm seal systems for sanitary applications are designed for specific applications ? in the case of pharmaceutical processes, in accordance with GMP guidelines. The system fill fluid is accordingly FDA-compliant.
Further information on diaphragm seal systems can be found on the WIKA website.
