Hygienic fittings – clamp connections
M&S clamp connections according to DIN 11864-3, 11853-3 and DIN 32676 are used for detachable connections in pipelines and for connecting machines, apparatus and containers in aseptic and hygienic processes.
The sealing geometry of the connections according to DIN 11864-3 and 11853-3 are identical, but they differ in construction length and surface finish. An O-ring is used for sealing, while the connections according to DIN 32676 are equipped with a profile flat seal.
The connections according to DIN 11864-3 and 32676 KL have a longer welding end. This is for orbital welding and is mainly used in plants of the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. The components according to DIN 11853-3 are designed with shorter welding ends for welding by hand.
They are manufactured in accordance with the applicable standards and are always made of forged primary material at M&S.
Areas of application:
- As a detachable connection for piping systems and for connecting machines, apparatus and containers in plants with aseptic and very high hygienic requirements.
- For easier disassembly of fittings, valves and other plant components
- For switching piping sections, e.g. panels
- As self-centring connecting elements in piggable pipelines
