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

In sanitary applications, diaphragm seal systems ensure a safe and precise monitoring of the procedure pressure. WIKA therefore also 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 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 really 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 really a compact and lightweight component. The great advantage of this sort 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 required as a counterpart. In this way, yet another 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 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 connection without dead space. This fulfils an important prerequisite for effective and, simultaneously, rapid CIP/SIP processes.
Application-specific design
All diaphragm seal systems, along with other WIKA measuring instruments, with conventional TRI-CLAMP� connections could be installed with NovAseptic� fittings without the modification measures. Generally, WIKA diaphragm seal systems for sanitary applications were created for specific applications ? in the case of pharmaceutical processes, in accordance with GMP guidelines. Sampler fill fluid is accordingly FDA-compliant.
