Steam-Thru® Sterile Connectors

All-in-One, Single-Use Sterile and SIP Connector Improves Process Productivity

CPC’s exceptionally reliable Steam-Thru SIP Connectors (STC) are engineered to provide a quick and easy sterile connection between stainless steel process equipment and pre-sterilized bag systems or tube sets. Along with sterile connections and disconnections, the Steam-Thru II SIP Connectors provide additional sterility assurance with “Steam On” and “Steam Off” capabilities without the need for a laminar hood. Best of all, the single-use design of the Steam-Thru Connectors saves time and money by eliminating unnecessary cleaning procedures and reducing validation burden associated with reusable components.

Steam-Thru Connectors Maximize Flexibility in Process Design and Plant Configuration

Steam-Thru SIP Sterile Connectors include several valve and termination options that provide maximum flexibility when designing workflow processes and associated equipment. Matter of fact, with Steam-Thru Connector’s wide range of mounting and flow options, process and manufacturer engineers throughout the biopharma industry specify CPC Steam-Thru SIP Connectors whenever there is a need to transfer media between stainless-steel processing systems and single-use systems.

Thoroughly Tested to Meet Steam-Thru SIP Connector Specifications

  • Bacterial challenge testing on the steam on and steam off cycles following media transfer
  • Bacterial ingress tests using Brevundimonas diminuta, conducted by Northview Labs, to verify post-sterilization seal performance
  • Helium/steam leak testing to assure design and process integrity
  • Tensile and maximum burst testing to ensure fit-for-purpose and manufactured to the highest quality
  • Biocompatibility testing on Steam-Thru II’s non-animal origin USP Class VI polysulfone and platinum-cured silicone seals
