THE PROBLEM: TRAPPED LIQUIDS IN SYSTEMS THAT CANNOT PROPERLY BE CLEANED
Updated: Mar 23
Customers have trapped liquids in their system and cannot properly clean them. Even worse, they do not even know they are there.
A low-cost, three-piece window traditionally used in older sanitary system designs attempts to seal on the inner flat of hygienic clamp gaskets. If not perfectly centered, the soft rubber can slip past the chamber on the edge of the glass, trapping liquid between the clamp gasket and the cushion in the assembly. This hereby traps the liquid with no ability to know it is there and making it impossible to clean. Factor this risk with the increased stress in all-glass discs, which eliminates mechanical cleaning, because once they are disassembled, they must be discarded.
What was once thought to be a cost-effective solution can be a become a very costly one.
THE JACOBY-TARBOX® SOLUTION: UNI-SAN® HYGIENIC SIGHT WINDOW
The Uni-San window’s crevice-free transition where glass is fused to metal takes a three-piece assembly to a single component that will surpass your CIP & SIP requirements. The pressure rating is many times that of its predecessor, greatly improving system safety factor, and eliminating the stressed all-glass disc.
Uni-San can be used for an indefinite number of cycles and rebuilds in most processes.
