A sanitary clamp, also called a sanitary fitting, is used to seal two ferrules together quickly, securely and without creating sites where contamination can collect or that can harbor bacteria. Fast connections are important in pharmaceutical and biotech applications, in which pipe and tube connections are frequently disassembled for cleaning and equipment reconfiguration. A reliable leak-free connection is imperative to meet FDA requirements for sterile process control. Often sanitary clamps must perform at high pressure and temperature.
The Series SH hygienic clamp incorporates a unique profile and twin hinge design for uniform compression. Eight different styles of wing nuts and hex nuts are available.
The Series SH Type II hygienic clamp attaches with two bolts and does not have a hinge. Sizes start at six inches. A wide variety of wing nut and hex nut styles is available.
The Series SSH hygienic clamp incorporates a unique profile and two bolts for greater clamping force. Suitable for high pressure applications. Stainless or brass hex nuts are available on stainless bolts.
Designed for pressure vessels, filter housings and other applications. It meets the requirements of ASME section VIII Appendix 24 of the Pressure Vessel Code. All components of the ASME Clamp are made from fully traceable 316 stainless steel.
The Safety Clamp protects workers by assuring the bolting mechanism cannot release suddenly while a worker is loosening the bolt. Releasing the Safety Clamp is only possible when the wing-nut has been significantly loosened to enable the smaller diameter of the bolt to swing through the sectioned gate, ensuring the Safety Clamp cannot be knocked or accidentally opened.
An advanced version of the Shrouded Safety Clamp, having a domed nut. The shroud is extended in length and modified to accept a padlock to prevent unauthorized access.
TCI ClampConnect™ virtually eliminates the dead space associated with a standard ferrule. Using a standard sanitary clamp connection, the TCI ClampConnect can be used with sight glasses, lights, instrumentation, rupture discs in pharmaceutical and biotech processes.
Virtually immune to degradation by commonly used CIP/SIP chemicals. Non-elastomeric sanitary-design gaskets are based on proprietary GYLON modified PTFE technology and are compatible with a wide variety of chemicals and processing applications. BIO-LOK™ gaskets are designed to not deform into the process flow stream, which could otherwise create areas where harmful bacteria could accumulate. Production date code traceability.
