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 wye is best used in vertical tubing installations to help ensure the entire process drains and provides an even change of flow. They are verified by both ASME A270 and 3A certifications.
