State-of-the-Art Design Allowing for Easy Operation
The biopharmaceutical industry has made a strong move towards single-use technology, so Nordson MEDICAL has developed ground-breaking clamp designs that simplify the assembly process by making it effortless to securely attach sanitary fittings to bag ports and filters.
PharmaLok™ clamps are ASME BPE compliant and operate at a maximum pressure of 80 psi. Single-use and easy-open clamp sizes fit .5" (12.7 mm) to .75" (19.0 mm) and 1" (25.4 mm) to 1.5" (31.8 mm). These clamps provide a significant advancement for the industry, as a number of existing solutions either require tools for closure or consist of multiple components, which turns what should be a simple operation into a difficult and awkward process.
"As a founding member of BPSA, Nordson MEDICAL has been fortunate enough to have insight into the needs of the biopharm industry," comments Ken Davis, Global Marketing Manager for Nordson MEDICAL. "User-friendly solutions are increasingly demanded, and single-use systems have developed into an overwhelming market trend. Incorporating these factors into the PharmaLok™ has resulted in an ideal solution for our customers."
Easily operated with one hand, PharmaLok's patent-pending design allows effortless attachment of fittings to bag ports and filters. The user simply rests the fitting in the PharmaLok's regulation-sized slot, lightly grips the surrounding handles, and listens for the sound of clicks to confirm a secure connection.
