Hygienic Bubble Trap Meets Pharmaceutical Needs
A bubble trap specifically designed for sterile service. The hygienic bubble trap is the first of its kind in that it is designed to be crevice-free and self-draining, efficiently removing unwanted gas or air bubbles in process fluids without areas where harmful bacteria can accumulate. Additionally, these traps are ASME BPE compliant with full traceability on all wetted components, gaskets meet USP Class VI and are FDA compliant and fully traceable. The surface finish is 15Ra with electropolish, they utilize hygienic sealing O-rings and there are no threads exposed. Washdown is simple and efficient and both disassembly and reassembly are quickly and easily accomplished. LJ Star pharmaceutical bubble traps provide a user with assurance that the trap will function and remain sterilized with less need for frequent SIP/CIP cleaning and associated downtime. Most significantly they reduce the risk of product contamination which can cost thousands of dollars and require time-consuming cleaning of the entire process. LJ Star sterile-service traps are available as standard in sizes ranging from four to ten inches and in custom designs.
Our sterile bubble traps originated with a request from a customer who could not find a bubble trap suitable for a hygienic pharmaceutical process. Many processes use chromatography that results in by-product gas that must be removed. Our trap provides a sterile, crevice-free, self-draining means of removing unwanted gas and bubbles from process fluids.

"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."

"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.”
