EVAC sTeRIc-clamp™ connections are available in sizes NW8 up to NW80 as standard.
The primary application range of this system is pharma, biotech, as well as food & beverage markets. Though, the advantages of metal free seals (no center ring) and zero deadspace, also open several Semicon applications for this connection technology, especially when vacuum requirements are satisfied at levels of 10E-7 mbar (10 µPa).
Fittings are made of stainless steel (SUS316L) and are fully sterilizable. Flange dimensions are according to ISO 2852 with tubes according to ISO 1127. Seals are available in several materials like Viton, silicone, EPDM and many more.
This system is used, where a gap-free connection is essential in order to achieve the cleaning in place (CIP) requirement. The seamless transition in between flanges, as well as the special wave design of bellows allow for the in-situ brush cleaning of the system without opening and inserting bacteria or other contaminants from the outside.
