JT Hygienics Tech Brief – Engineered Hygienic Clamps
The industry and standards organizations, like ASME BPE(1), have standardized geometry for hygienic ferrules and categorized gasket intrusion, leaving only hygienic clamps as the missing "Link" in fully defining hygienic joint or hygienic union performance. Just as a table needs at least three legs to achieve stability, adding an engineered clamp can be the third leg that ultimately stabilizes union performance to meet industry demands for greater consistency. After defining “success” for the union performance, we will demonstrate how incorporating the attributes that support this success into the GRQ Engineered Hygienic Clamp help overcome obstacles in real world applications and ensure system success.
