offer quick connect fittings in sanitary design for use with flexible
hoses & tubes such as silicon, PVC, nylon, rubber, etc.
assembly consists of a standard sanitary end fitting such as triclover/SMS/IDF/DIN
with an integral hose barb. The hose barb is inserted inside the
flexible tube of appropriate dimensions. A compression fitting consisting
of a specially designed nut is then applied over the assembly &
tightened. The special profile of the nut presses the tube uniformly
against the hose barb, thereby preventing it from slipping off even
at high temperatures & pressures. The fittings can be assembled
& dismantled within a few seconds by one person using simple
accidents which may lead to personal injuries, product loss, damage
to machinery, & loss of production time.
system is advantageous over the standard method of fitting of end
connections over flexible hose pipes, i.e., by inserting a very
tight fitting hose barb with the appropriate end connection over
the hose & tightening by means of a metal worm-clip (also called
"Jubilee" clip). Disadvantages of this standard method
are - good quality clips are not available in the market - the ones
that are available wear out in a very short time; time required
for assembly & dismantling is quite high; the assembly is always
prone to leakage; & chances of injury to operating personnel
is high due to frequent slipping of the screw-driver required for
tightening/loosening the retainer screw on the clip.
sanitary quick connect fittings are designed for simplicity of operation
& for cleaning as per standard norms. The all-metal design ensures
that the fittings are suitable for high operating pressures (upto
15 kg/cm2) & high operating temperatures (upto 180 oC), &
compatible with a wide range of process applications & chemicals.
Use of high-grade stainless steel (SS304/SS316) & suitability
for steaming-in-place (SIP) ensures that these fittings are ideally
suited for hygienic applications such as food, dairy, pharmaceutical,
biotech & biopharmaceuticals.
