Silicone Connecting Sleeves

The Uni-Connect silicone sleeve system is ideal for connecting two items of process equipment using Tri-Clover type couplings. The use of a flexible connector provides a simple, effective method of height adjustment and also compensates for misalignment.

The Uni-Connect system is a simple, cost effective method for joining two items of process equipment where a temporary dust-tight connection is required. The use of the flexible connection is ideal for material transfer and can be used to dampen any vibration problems.

The Uni-Connect system incorporates the use of Tri-Clover clamps and ferrules to ensure simple integration into any product transfer situation. Using Tri-Clovers also ensures the transfer piece has a smooth bore avoiding unnecessary ledges or product traps. The Uni-Connect is moulded in one piece for FDA compliant silicone rubber. The silicone material complies with FDA 177, 2600 and is translucent.
