Eisele Pneumatics' stainless steel connections Inoxline 3800 series provide joint- or gap-free connections in media circuits where only minimal residue can be tolerated in the pipe system. Their design allows safe and reliable internal cleaning of the lines by flushing before changing media. The connectors are the right choice especially in the food and pharmaceutical industries, since it is also suitable for internal sterilisation. Residue can accumulate in corners, edges and gaps of conventional hoses and pipes, where it is not easily removed during cleaning. In the handling of foods and pharmaceuticals and in the chemical industry, however, maximum hygiene is necessary, since even minimal mixing can make entire production batches unusable. In the case of microbiologically sensitive products, product residue can become a breeding ground for germs and the hose, including the connections, therefore becomes a source of contamination. Thanks to the joint-free design it is not necessary to disassemble systems for cleaning. The connectors allow fast installation, since no special preparation of the hoses is necessary. The combined plug/turn mounting allows connection or disconnection with only one turn of the tool. Accidental opening by hand is nevertheless not possible, since the hose is securely fixed by a collet when the union nut is tightened. The use of hose connections is especially beneficial in circuits with many moving parts, such as filling systems, since the hoses are much more flexible than pipes. The connection is insensitive to vibrations, since it has no moving parts when in closed condition.
