How to Reduce the Risk of Fitting Leaks & Entrapment
A Solution for Fluid Flow Processes
It’s a fact: Single-Use tubing sets can leak. And leaks contribute to all sorts of problems, from valuable product spilled onto the cleanroom floor, to safety hazards, to rework and added expense.
Tubing sets run the risk of entrapment as well. Fluids and organisms like bacteria can become trapped between the fitting’s barbs and the interior tubing wall, leading to potential contamination . . . and contamination can ruin an entire batch.
But there’s a solution: Molded manifold connections
Molded connections remove the risk of leaks and entrapment. By combining pre-made tubing with liquid injection molded material like silicone, fittings such as Y’s, T’s, crosses, reducers and Tri-Clamp® styles are molded directly to the tubing, eliminating gaps prone to entrapment.
With molded assemblies there’s much less need for expensive sterile connectors and therefore fewer cable ties needed for fitting-to-tubing attachment. There’s no need to use twoties to ensure a proper fit, and no need to hope that those ties are tight enough.
The cutaway image of a molded Y connection shows how entrapment risks are greatly reduced thanks to the molding process.
Don’t trust a batch of product worth millions to a $2 connection prone to leaks and entrapment.
Molded manifold connections and tubing assemblies:
Simplify customer inventories
Greatly reduce assembly time and costs – products arrive gamma irradiated and ready to use
Increase safety – no cable ties means no sharp edges that can compromise bags used in the process flow
