Tri-clamps are one of the most common sanitary connection types in North America. It consists of a gasket between two tri-clamp ferrules or flanges which are mechanically tightened in place with a clamp. Made from stainless steel, it is used for piping in the food, beverage, biotech, and pharmaceutical industries. This high-pressure clamp is tightened with two bolts and brass fasteners, it provides a constant pressure so that it can be used with higher pressures, PTFE gaskets, or areas with a lot of vibration. They are verified by both ASME A270 and 3A certifications.
