AESSEAL has been granted a US patent (US 10844961) for its CIP cleanable barrier fluid system, EasyClean, which improves hygiene standards in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries.
EasyClean ensures that the product being pumped is not contaminated in any way, for example in the manufacture of paints and automotive coating lines. Although these industries must maintain a high level of hygiene in production lines and throughout their factories, seal support systems often harbour dirt and bacteria on the interior of the main vessel, due to their inherently enclosed design, making them difficult to inspect, clean and maintain high levels of hygiene.
The EasyClean vessel is designed to allow more control over the level of hygiene in plants. It has a detachable lower section, which enables the vessel to be taken apart for inspection and cleaning, offering manufacturers the opportunity to quickly inspect and clean their systems and so eliminating the harmful build-up of dirt and bacteria.
The EasyClean seal support system also has patent protection in the UK and China, with decisions pending in Germany and India.
