Diaphragm seal systems with TRI-CLAMP� connection are NovAseptic� compatible

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-CLAMP� connection for process integration. Painstaking of this reference to easy-to-clean NovAseptic� connecting pieces can be done without further modification.
Diaphragm seal systems from WIKA with TRI-CLAMP� connection for sanitary applications
Compact component
The TRI-CLAMP� connection is widely used in sanitary applications. It is used, among other things, for tanks and similar vessels. In comparison to other process connections for this industry, e.g. DIN 11864-2 flange connections, the TRI-CLAMP� is a compact and lightweight component. The great advantage of this type of connection is its ease of handling. Measuring instruments are installed, without tools, utilizing a clamp connection.
To become in a position to integrate the TRI-CLAMP� into the process, a connecting nozzle of exactly the same size is necessary as a counterpart. In this way, yet another hollow body is established on the vessel. Here, a dead space can arise through the process due to air inclusions or gas bubbles. Thus, an increased cleaning effort is essential to minimise the potential risks.
Rapid cleaning processes
NovAseptic� connecting pieces are a hygienic option to this. The adapter for the TRI-CLAMP� 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 essential prerequisite for effective and, simultaneously, rapid CIP/SIP processes.
Application-specific design
All diaphragm seal systems, as well as other WIKA measuring instruments, with conventional TRI-CLAMP� connections could be installed with NovAseptic� fittings without any modification measures. Generally, WIKA diaphragm seal systems for sanitary applications were created for specific applications ? in the case of pharmaceutical processes, relative to GMP guidelines. The machine fill fluid is accordingly FDA-compliant.
