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 offers welded units of diaphragm seal and measuring instrument with TRI-CLAMP� connection for process integration. A combination 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 trusted in sanitary applications. It is used, among other activities, 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 fantastic advantage of this type of connection is its ease of handling. Measuring Increase are installed, without tools, using a clamp connection.
To become in a position to integrate the TRI-CLAMP� in to the process, a connecting nozzle of the same size is required as a counterpart. In this way, an additional hollow body is established on the vessel. Here, a dead space can arise through the process because of air inclusions or gas bubbles. Thus, an elevated cleaning effort is essential 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 directly 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 link without dead space. This fulfils an important 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 are designed for specific applications ? in the case of pharmaceutical processes, relative to GMP guidelines. The machine fill fluid is accordingly FDA-compliant.
