Is there a recommended sanitization/maintenance program for a distribution system for process air piping?

The use of properly rated terminal filters (with verified integrity/particulate removal efficiency) is sufficient to secure no risk of undue product contamination, along with suitable sanitary piping downstream of the filter. Most sanitization/maintenance programs would focus mainly on the terminal filter and piping downstream from the filter. Upstream, you would need to ensure that air […]

Are there guidelines for use of threaded and compression fittings vs. welded connections for use in piping for process gases?

This would depend on your application and gas type being used. For pure air systems, threaded and compression fittings could be used upstream from the terminal filters, but for other purified gases, and for piping and connections downstream of the terminal filters, I would recommend use of welded fittings. You should also ensure the piping […]
