Hygienic pipe couplings

Pipe couplings are the most frequently used elements of modern food processing equipment. Wherever connections are made between plant elements (e.g. pumps, valves, filters, vessels), a dismountable joint creates possibilities for maintenance, quick  replacement, or changes in the processing sequence or product flow route.
Because pipe couplings are typically mass produced, they were among the first items to be standardized. The basic designs specified in the most important standards currently used in Europe are now 30-35 years old. As the development of products and processing methods has resulted in more sensitive products and more severe process conditions, in many cases pipe couplings are operating at the limit of their capabilities, with increasing risk of failure from hygienic as well as mechanical points of view.
This increasing risk and the related failures have prompted equipment users and manufacturers to design improved couplings. Thus,  almost every major equipment supplier now has their own type of coupling, reducing equipment versatility and increasing costs to
users and manufacturers.
