SF Series Sanitary Fittings

Connectors of Choice for Single-Use Bioprocesses

SF Series sanitary fittings are designed for use in single-use container fluid transport systems, manifolds and wherever sensitive fluids must be transferred. They are offered in two flange sizes, 1-1/2" ("Maxi"), and the popular 3/4" ("Mini") size commonly used with small tubing sizes. Both work with flanges made to ASME-BPE specifications. SF Series sanitary fittings incorporate 600 Series barbs for easy use with silicone, C-Flex® or Tygon® tubing. Each fitting comes individually bagged.

The SF Series is based on design concepts calling for a heavy-duty part with superior side load strength, while providing superior flow through characteristics; making them the connectors of choice for single-use bioprocesses. Pharmaceutical professionals find these plastic plastics fittings offer all the benefits of disposable parts while offering performance capabilities not found in earlier versions of flanged fittings.

These sanitary fittings can be sterilized using either EtO, autoclaving or gamma techniques. "Feedback from customers indicate they really like our new sanitary fitting caps because of the large surface area they provide for gloved operators to grab onto when handling them," says Ken Davis, Global Marketing Manager. These new sanitary fittings and highly efficient caps have been tested to interconnect with other commonly available plastic and traditional stainless steel parts. Nordson MEDICAL also sells platinum cured silicone gaskets to complete the seal operation.
