CleanLine Connector

The adaptation of Single Use (SU) parts and procedures, particularly in the bioprocessing and bio-manufacturing fields, has been quite revolutionary. Making or breaking connections between the many components used in those industries in a safe, secure and sanitary manner is a key part of that transition and its success. Refine Technology has developed a scale-able 1.5” connector that extends the capability to make connections between large bore tubing or between parts having a 1.5” I-line (TC) or barb port, including stainless steel or synthetic parts. Whether in a single use system or a hybrid stainless steel to single use application where larger connection ports are more common, rapid fluid transfer through larger connections can provide a tremendous time savings for these critical processes. Refine Technology’s CleanLine™ 1.5″ Single Use Connector and custom hose assemblies provide simpler sterile set-up and operational efficiency with higher flow rates and reliability.

The CleanLine™ Connector provides the benefits of aseptic single use capability while maintaining the reliability typically associated with traditional stainless steel technology.

  • Strong, robust 1½ ” connection for high pressure and flow rates
  • Single use supports continuous bioprocessing
  • Dual seals minimize contamination risk from the inside and outside
  • Genderless connecting: less inventory, less complexity, more flexibility
  • Connection secured with polysulfone Twist Lock Rivets
  • Cleaned, assembled and packaged in an ISO 7 Clean Room
  • Gamma and autoclave stable
  • More cost effective; less down time
  • Hose and custom assemblies available

Applications Include:

  • Upstream to downstream transfer
  • Media buffer preparation and transfer
  • Bioreactor harvest
  • Sterile waste removal from process stream
  • WFI or sterile water transfers
  • Sterile bulk formulation downloads

Anywhere in your process that could benefit from rapid, high volume sterile fluid transfer
