Sanitary Strainer or Sanitary fliter is used to eliminate the small particulates from compressors, pumps, meters and some other equipments. When liquids flow through the screen, impurities can be held up, then pure liquids come out through the outlet. If cleaning is needed, just draw out the cartridge and put it back after the cleaning, it is very convenient for using and maintenance.
The filters are with compact design, strong filter power, small damage and favorable pricing, they are widely used in food, beverage, dairy and pharmaceutical industries.

Tri Clover fittings, also called sanitary fittings, are widely used in the commercial food processing industries.
They can be found in dairies, soft drink plants, wineries and of course: breweries. They allow for pipe and tubing connections to be made in a sanitary fashion that is designed to be cleaned in place (CIP) but is easily broken down for further cleaning, inspection and repair. For an installation to be truly considered sanitary, it most conform to the “3A” standard. Among a long list of requirements, the two that stand out are:
No exposed threaded connections. All connections end to end must not have any threads. There can be connections made with threaded fittings, but they are special fittings that use a gasket or seal between the threads and the fluid. Connections between Tri Clover fittings and NPT fittings are not allowed in the 3A standard and that’s why those fittings are hard to find.
No abrupt changes in internal diameter. If you need to reduce a 3″ pipe to a 2″ pipe, there is a special reducing fitting that offers a gradual taper between the two diameters.
Benefits of Tri Clover Compatible Fittings in the Home Brewery.
As you can see from the two basic requirements above, it’s pretty difficult to maintain a truly sanitary installation of Tri Clover Compatible fittings at the home brewery scale. So why bother with them? Because they make excellent connections. They are very easy to clean since there are no pockets, nooks or crannies and they don’t leak. All other quick disconnect designs on the market depend on an o-ring captured in the QD body or on the plug. Unless you remove the o-ring every time you clean them, they tend to trap sticky wort. These o-rings are also susceptible to tearing and leaking. Used on the inlet side of a pump that can lead to an annoying air bleed that will cause the pump to cavitate. That’s not to say that quick disconnects are bad, they are certainly easier and faster to use and if the o-rings are properly maintained, they will offer years of service.
Sizing Tri Clover Compatible Fittings for your Home Brewery.
Like all pipe and tube fittings, the sizing of Tri Clover Compatible Fittings can be confusing. Unlike all other pipe and tube fittings, Tri Clover Compatible Fittings are a lot easier to understand: The size of a Tri Clover Compatible fitting refers to the outside diameter of the sanitary tubing it makes a connection for, NOT the flange diameter. 1/2″ and 3/4″ Tri Clover Compatible fittings share the same .984″ flange size just like 1″ and 1.5″ fittings share a 1.984″ flange. See the table for Tri Clover Compatible size vs. flange size.
Tri Clover Compatible Size
Actual Flange Size
1/2 “, 3/4”
The most common size used in the home brewery market is the 1″-1.5″. Since they share the same flange size, they can be interconnected with no problem. A 1″ ball valve will connect to a 1.5″ ferrule without a problem. 1/2″ Tri Clover Compatible fittings are a little more compact and weigh less, but since they are not as widely used they tend to be more expensive. Sabco uses 1/2″ Tri Clover Compatible in it’s Brew Magic® system. Every other commercial home brewery I’ve seen uses 1/1.5″ fittings. 2″ Tri Clover Compatible fittings can be used to make a connection with a Sanke Keg ferrule.
What’s Needed to Make a Tri Clover Connection.
To make a Tri Clover Compatible connection you need two fittings, one gasket and one clamp. The fitting can be a Tri Clover Compatible ferrule, a Tri Clover X NPT fitting, a Tri Clover Compatible valve or site glass etc. Each connection requires a clamp and gasket. Tri Clover Compatible gaskets are available in a wide variety of materials but the most useful ones to us as home brewers are Silicone, PTFE Teflon® and BUNA-N. Silicone offers great heat resistance and is soft so it forms a seal very easily. Silicone sanitary gaskets are my favorite for almost any connection. Teflon® is more rigid than BUNA-N and requires a little more clamping pressure to get a good seal. It also has a high heat resistance, and it’s definitely the material of choice if the connection is a rotation point like in a fermentor racking arm or rotating pickup tube. BUNA-N is an inexpensive and easy to seal material.
Stainless Steel Sanitary Ball Valves Sanitary ball valves are also called a hygienic ball valve which is opened by turning handles attached to balls inside the valves. The ball has a hole or port through the middle. When the port is in line with both ends of the valve, the flow will occur. When the valve is closed, the hole is perpendicular to the ends of the valve, and flow is blocked. A ball valve is durable and usually works to achieve perfect shutoff even after years of disuse.
sanitary ball valves are made of high-quality stainless steel, which can meet the special requirements of various media in the food and biopharmaceutical fields. The smooth, seamless, and automatic emptying of handicrafts is also very suitable for steam cleaning.
sanitary ball valve has many advantages such as removable connection, simple structure, and easy maintenance; sanitary ball valve rubber seals and valve plates are high-quality pieces to ensure the use of performance and service life;
sanitary ball valve can supply valve body and disc materials such as AISI 304 or AISI 316L, 304L and 316 materials according to your requests. This stainless steel hygienic ball valve is suitable for dairy, food, beer, beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and other industrial areas.
Sight glass for home brewing and craft brewing . Sight glass with TC connectors. The sight glass allows you to see the wort color during circulation. Also great to use during oxygenation to get a view on the oxygen flow. It’s for easy cleaning and rugged design. Normally usede between a 3-way valve and the counterflow cooler.

diaphragm valve, specially designed for using on food, beverage, dairy, brewing, pharmaceutical industries, etc. It is excellent for flow control as well as for open/close duties.
The seal materials comply with FDA177.2600 standard. Using proprietary technology, the diaphragm uses a combination of EPDM and PTFE, which is secured using SS bolts. The sealing part where contact with the medium is of PTFE material, it has good cold resistance -13℉(-25℃), excellent heat-resistance 482℉(+250℃), tolerance to most chemicals, and excellent abrasion resistance to medium flow.
PFA or Perfluoroalkoxy alkane are fluoropolymers. PFA, FEP, PTFE, the chemical properties are similar, but FEP can only be used below 200℃, and the big difference of PTFE is that the PFA allow the polymer to be melt-processed. This kind of resin can be directly processed into products by ordinary thermoplastic forming method. Suitable for making corrosion-resistant products, antifriction wear parts, seals, insulation and medical equipment parts, high-temperature wire, cable insulation, corrosion protection equipment, sealing materials, valve bushing, and chemical containers.
Performance of PEA lined fittings:
A copolymer of polytetrafluoroethylene and polytetrafluoroethylene. The melt adhesion increases and the viscosity of the solution decrease, while the performance does not change compared with that of PTFE. This kind of resin can be directly processed into products by ordinary thermoplastic forming method.
long-term use temperature -80–260 degrees, have excellent resistance to chemical corrosion, to all chemicals are corrosive, the lowest friction coefficient in the plastic, and good electrical properties, the electrical insulation is not affected by temperature, with “the king of plastic”.
Its chemical resistance is similar to that of polytetrafluoroethylene, better than that of vinylidene fluoride.
Its creep resistance and compressive strength are better than PTFE, tensile strength high, elongation of up to 100-300%. Good dielectric property and excellent radiation resistance. Flame retardant up to V0 grade
Suitable for making corrosion-resistant parts, wear and tear resistant parts, seals, insulation and medical equipment parts.
High-temperature wires, cables, insulation, corrosion protection equipment, sealing materials, valve bushes, and chemical containers.
