AA Connect - Aseptic Tank Nozzles

Download Data Sheet in PDF Format: 

The AA “Aseptic Connect” range of tank nozzles was developed to allow a flexible connection method for a series of process accessories including; sight glasses; clamp fittings; instruments & sensors: valves and sprayballs to be installed and removed quickly from the tank wall.

 

The nozzle is welded into the vessel and should to be installed flush with the tank wall in a procedure documented in the ASME BPE standard.

 

The system’s flexibility has seen its potential applications increase to include Jacketed Vessels, Angled Vessel Housings, Large Clamp Blanks for vessel lids and finally the Aseptic In-Line Housings.

 

Originally the diametric drillings in the pad flange were used to drain off samples of the product but this method in no longer recommended although the drillings have remained part of the product.

 

Aseptic sample valves are advised for taking any process samples.
