Clamp Type Sterile Visual Flow Indicator for Hygienic Applications
The patent pending design of the CT-SVFI prevents o-ring compression issues that lead to contamination associated with conventional screwed or threaded designs.
Rather than rely on threads and screws, the CT-SVFI uses sanitary clamps to secure the sight glass assembly. The clamp's mechanical stop design applies precisely controlled compression to o-rings to eliminate the gasket warping and any o-ring intrusion that can trap bacteria and contaminants. This greatly mitigates the risk of contamination build-up, reducing cleaning issues and frequency.
The engineering-optimized design also offers quick and easy assembly and disassembly that threaded designed visual flow indicators simply canÕt match. The clamp connection eliminates the need for additional tools or specialized installation equipment. Polished stainless steel sanitary clamp connections are standard with an orbital weld; Swagelok TS, flange or union connections are available as special order items.
The CT-SVFI also offers the largest possible viewing area in its class while still maintaining the structural and mechanical integrity of the component. When compared to typical visual flow indicators, the CT-SVFI allows for a viewing area increase of up to 34%.
The CT-SVFI maintains an EN10204 3.1 certification for steelwork, along with FDA and USP VI certified o-rings, and is fully compliant with the requirements of the European Pressure Equipment Directive 97 / 23 / EC. LJ Star's CT-SVFI uses SF4 (15Ra Max, EP) 316L stainless steel, with full material traceability ASME. EPDM is the standard o-ring material, with silicone and other options available in tube OD sizes from 1/2" to 4".
Standard material of construction is 316L stainless steel with full material traceability ASME (BPE Standards). For corrosive service, Hastelloy and AL6XN are also available. All gaskets are USP Class VI and FDA certified and are fully traceable. EPDM is the standard o-ring material with Silicone, Viton, and FEP jacketed Silicone as options.
- FDA & USP Class VI certified o-rings
- EN10204 3.1 certification for steelwork
- European Pressure Equipment Directive 97/23/EC
- Borosilicate 3.3 viewing cylinder (10:1 FOS)
Units are available from stock in tube OD sizes from 1/2 to 4 inches with standard lengths shown below.
Depending on OD, units are rated up to 150 PSIG. Custom designed lengths, connection sizes and types are also available.
Mounted in-line for high-purity/sanitary/hygienic/sterile applications in the pharmaceutical, food/beverage processing, brewery and biotech industries. Provides a clear view of flow for virtually any process pipeline fluid or powder.

"I received the cart yesterday, thanks for the fast delivery! It feels sturdy. I sat on it. It does not bounce. It is also easy to clean and wipe or wash down."
Vice President, Analytical Development and Manufacturing
"Thanks again for reacting so quickly and meeting me halfway with the element. We will be able to get installed and have things keep moving overnight with the night crew. The little things like this are always greatly appreciated when working with Liquidyne."
“This pump cut our processing time from 3 days to 1 shift. I’m not giving this pump back. You will have to come and get it if you want it... and that won’t likely happen.”
