Bio-Pharm Fittings from VNE - BioConnect©

BioConnect©
  • Optimized recess contour (patent approved)
  • Highest press-on power at the transitions to wetted areas prevents dirt and germs getting into the sealing space (see ASME-BPE, Ch. SD-3.7.2 and 3.7.6)
  • Defined expansion pockets excludes dangerous "escalator effect" between wetted area and elastomer seat (see ASME-BPE, Ch. SD-3.7.2)
  • Self-draining even after expansion of seal due to high temperature (see ASME-BPE, Ch. SD-3.7.7)
  • Metal-to-metal-stop avoids stress or overcompression of gaskets (O-ring) (see ASME-BPE, Ch. SD-3.7.8)
  • nominal pressure PN16 (D6 - DN100, 1/2" - 4")

 

Connect S© - a unique solution without elastomer gasket
  • Optimal recess contour and design of the sealing metallic surface (patent approved)
  • Excellent cleanability
  • Tested by Fraunhofer-Institut for Grenzflächen-und Bioverfahrenstechnik
  • Hermetic tightness even under repeated temperature changes
  • Defined pre-stressing on the metallic sealing surface
  • No gasket - no elevator effect
  • Protection of the sealing contour against damage
  • Axial positioning by metal-to-metal-stop
  • Exact positioning by central guidance
  • Material grad 1.4435/316 L; other grades on request
  • Wetted areas with roughness Ra<0,8µm (Ra<0,5µm on demand)
  • Dimensions acc. ASME-BPE, DIN11866, DIN 11850, ISO 1127
  • Material Test Report according EN 10204-3.1 (on request ADW 2)
  • Approval for pressure application: issued by TÜV Germany  (Süddeutschland)
    a) Nominal Pressure:
    PN 16 (DN 6 until DN 50)
    PN 10 (DN 65 until DN 100)
    PN 100 (DN 6 until DN 40, high pressure-aseptic connection)

 

BioControl©

BioControl© is a fully aseptic modular system with TÜV-approval for pressure application.

BioControl© provides the user with a fully hygienic port for connection control instruments, gauges, sight glasses etc., allowing cleaning and sterilizing in place.

BioControl© system is supported by the following manufacturers of instruments and special equipment:

  • Endress + Hauser
  • WIKA
  • LABOM
  • Fisher Rosemount (EMERSON)
  • Papenmeier
  • Others
    BioControl© allows 100% Cleaning-In-Place where typical instrument tees stay with uncleaned dead pockets.
