TRI-CLAMPS / TRI-CLOVER FITTINGS


Tri-Clover, Tri-Clamps or TC is a widely used name that encompasses many different types of Stainless Steel sanitary hardware. The use of Tri-Clover fittings is not limited to the brewing industry; they are also widely used in plumbing and dairy applications. They may look a little bit confusing, but they are indeed beneficial. Originally the Tri-Clover name was used to describe the three-segment sanitary end connection clamps. The advantage of these connectors is that they are effortless to clean as well as very sturdy. They do not have any nooks or crannies where germs and molds can hide; thus, cleanup is easy.

Another characteristic of a Tri-Clover fitting is that it does not come with any ball sockets that may come in contact with your brew. Moreover, they are also better in securing the precious liquid throughout your brew system as they help to create a leak-free connection with your fittings. (more info below)

When installing Tri-Clover fitting, the connections should not have any threads. While some TC fittings have threads, using Tri-Clover clamps and gaskets are preferred for a truly sanitary environment. Moreover, there should not be any abrupt changes within the internal diameter. If you need to reduce a 3" Tri-Clover fitting to a smaller size TC you will need a Tri-Clover Concentric Reducer, this piece of hardware will provide a gradual taper between the two Tri-Clover diameters.
