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

In sanitary applications, diaphragm seal systems ensure a safe and precise monitoring of the process pressure. WIKA therefore also offers welded units of diaphragm seal and measuring instrument with TRI-CLAMP� connection for process integration. A variety of this connection with easy-to-clean NovAseptic� connecting pieces is possible 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 activities, for tanks and similar vessels. Compared to other process connections because of this industry, e.g. DIN 11864-2 flange connections, the TRI-CLAMP� is really a compact and lightweight component. The fantastic advantage of this type of connection is its ease of handling. Measuring instruments are installed, without tools, using a clamp connection.
In order to be able to integrate the TRI-CLAMP� into the process, a connecting nozzle of exactly the same size is necessary as a counterpart. In Value , an additional hollow body is created on the vessel. Here, a dead space can arise during the process due to air inclusions or gas bubbles. Thus, an increased cleaning effort is necessary to minimise the potential risks.
Rapid cleaning processes
NovAseptic� connecting pieces certainly are a hygienic alternative to this. The adapter for the TRI-CLAMP� connection is welded straight into the top of vessel, the ferrule is fixed with head nuts. When installed correctly, the connecting nozzle welded in flush to the tank wall ensures a connection 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 can 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 system fill fluid is accordingly FDA-compliant.
