AseptiQuik® STC Connectors integrate the AseptiQuik® sterile connector and the Steam-Thru® II SIP connector, giving manufacturers even greater flexibility for hybrid stainless steel and single-use processing. The AseptiQuik STC connector features a Steam-Thru II connection that is mounted directly to the stainless steel vessel via a sanitary termination.
The union of the two connectors into a single unit through a sanitary clamp allows an AseptiQuik sterile connection to be steamed on to stainless equipment via SIP. After the SIP cycle, a wide range of single-use systems can be connected. The SIP process can be done in advance allowing a quick and easy sterile connection to the AseptiQuik half without having to wait 30-60 minutes for SIP prior to inoculation or harvest.
