    What Makes Sanitary Fittings Different From Ordinary Fittings

    Pipe fitting or tube fitting is the occupation of installing or repairing piping or tubing systems that convey liquid, gas, and occasionally solid materials. This work involves selecting and preparing pipe or tubing, joining it together by various means, and the location and repair of leaks. The different materials, construction mechanical processing, ID & OD dimensions of the fittings make them different. As for the food, beverage, biopharmaceutical and personal care industries, they will definitely choose stainless steel sanitary fittings rather than any other ordinary fittings. Why? What is the difference between them? Existed along with word “sanitary”, sanitary tube fittings are cleanable. They can either cleaned by dismantling a…

    What are sanitary fittings?

    Sanitary fittings were well developed and are widely used because they are cleanable; either by dismantling a system and manually cleaning it or using a CIP (clean in place) process. They limit entrapment areas where bacteria could form or harbor. They are also corrosion resistant. Additionally, sanitary fittings do not contain any pockets, threading, or tight bends. This design specification is meant to eliminate the areas that are difficult to clean. Occasionally materials being processed will interact with stainless steel, potentially causing them to corrode and eventually fail. For this reason, sanitary fittings are available in specific stainless steel alloys to make sure they can handle more demanding processing environments.…
