New high-speed beadless fusion system for non-metallic piping featuring SIB® technology
Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics proudly announces the introduction of the new Sani-Tech® SIB®3 high-speed fusion welding tool for the fabrication and installation of high purity water piping systems. Sani-Tech high-purity piping is used in the delivery of highly purified water including USP purified, USP WFI, and RO/DI. The new SIB 3 is reliable, compact, lightweight and easy to operate. It performs beadless welds in a fraction of the time and labor required by other available systems.
The SIB 3 is engineered to join either Sani-Pro® K PVDF or Sani-Pro T polypropylene. Both of these high-purity materials meet or exceed USP Class VI and FDA 21 CFR 177.2510 or CFR 177.1520. Saint-Gobain’s unique SIB (smooth inner bore) technology features a smooth inner surface free of weld beads, crevices or intrusions and eliminates areas of particle entrapment and flow restriction. Sani-Pro K accommodates operating temperatures up to 80°C (175°F) and is the material of choice for pharmaceutical, high-purity chemical and semiconductor applications. Sani-Pro T is extremely tough and durable and is an excellent choice for most moderate service applications.
The PC-based SIB 3 system allows users to store and print weld cycle data for piping system validation. The programmed weld cycles are activated through a simple, easy-to-read touch screen. The lightweight, remote weld head enables welds to be made in limited access locations such as overhead installations. Cost-effective installation now enables systems owners to take full advantage of all the benefits of a non-metallic piping system, including reduced labor costs, maintenance costs and downtime.
