Spool or Manifold?
Sanitary spool pieces are straight sections of tubing that are used to connect various components in a piping system. They are typically made of stainless steel or other materials that are resistant to corrosion and easy to clean. Sanitary spool pieces are available in a range of sizes, lengths, and configurations to suit different applications, and they are often used to connect pumps, filters, valves, and other equipment.
Sanitary spool pieces are designed to be easy to disassemble and clean, which is essential in industries where hygiene is critical. They are often fitted with tri-clamp or other quick-release fittings, which allow them to be easily connected and disconnected without the need for tools. This makes it easy to remove and clean individual components of the system without having to disassemble the entire piping system.
Sanitary manifolds are complex assemblies that are used to distribute fluids or gases to multiple locations within a system. They are essentially a series of interconnected spool pieces, valves, and other components that are designed to control the flow of fluid or gas to different parts of the system. Sanitary manifolds are typically used in larger systems where there are multiple points of use or where the flow of fluid or gas needs to be controlled or monitored at different points.
Sanitary manifolds are often custom-built to suit specific applications, and they can be quite complex, with multiple valves, sensors, and other components. They are typically designed to be compact and easy to install, and they may be fitted with mounting brackets or other hardware to simplify installation. Like sanitary spool pieces, sanitary manifolds are designed to be easy to clean, with smooth surfaces and minimal dead space to prevent the accumulation of bacteria or other contaminants.
