TS3000


Features
Thermosiphon systems of the TS3000 range designed specifically for the operation and supply of mechanical seals in sterile processes. The TS3000 thermosiphon vessel is available in two standard sizes, designed for dismantling, with cooling coil. The modular system allows the TS3000 vessels to be combined with a wide range of system components.

Circulation in accordance with API 682 / ISO 21 049: Plan 52, Plan 53A

Advantages
  • Can be fully sterilized: TS3000 thermosiphon system, including all components and pipe couplings
  • Surfaces are electropolished on all sides: effective cleaning and reduction of bacteria growth
  • Vessel can be dismantled: the joint is sealed at the inner diameter by an O-ring without any gaps
  • FDA-conform materials, therefore suitable for hygienic applications
Recommended applications
  • Food and beverage industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry

Item Description
1 TS vessel with cooling coil
2 Shut-off valve
3 Level switch
4 Pressure gauge (membrane transducer)
5 Thermometer
6 Check valve
7 Safety valve (set pressure 8 bar)
Standards and approvals
  • PED 97/23 EG (Design and production in accordance with EU Pressure Equipment Directive)

Notes
Sterilization:CIP ands SIP is possible.

Making condensate: At the end of the sterilization cycle, valve 2.4 is closed, valve 2.3 is fully opened, and the cooling water supply is switched on again – condensate will be made. The level switch (3) responds when the TS vessel is full. The agitator can be started up again.


Functional description
The TS system performs all the basic functions of a buffer/barrier system for the operation of double seals:
  • to pressurize the buffer chamber
  • leakage compensation
  • buffer/barrier fluid is circulated by thermosiphon effects
  • to cool the seal
  • to selectively absorb product leakage and prevent dry running (tandem arrangement)

In addition to performing the basic functions of a buffer system, the TS3000 system can also be used to make condensate, provided the TS system is connected up to a steam pipe.
