Measurement technology for sanitary applications
Given the increasing demands on quality and product safety from biotechnology processes in the life sciences field and the manufacture of chemical raw materials, sterile process engineering plays a significant part in the cost-effectiveness and safety of production processes. Contamination-free process management calls for compliance with hygienic design criteria in components as well as in measuring instruments.
Measuring instruments from WIKA are manufactured in line with the GMP guidelines (good manufacturing practice). They meet the stringent requirements of, e.g.:
- FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
- EHEDG (European Hygienic Engineering & Design Group)
- 3-A Sanitary Standards, Inc.
- ASME BPE (Bio Processing Equipment)
- ATEX (directive 94/9/EC)
Safe process connections
WIKA supplies a wide range of industry-standard and manufacturer-specific process connections in hygienic design, for example, aseptic connections to DIN 11864, NEUMO BioControl® and VARIVENT®.
For toxic, bioactive substances or very sensitive substances, special instrumentation options are available in order to integrate the measuring instruments into the plant without elastomers.
