A "TC nozzle" in bulk sampling refers to a nozzle equipped with a Tri-Clamp (TC) connection system. TC connection systems are widely used in industry to connect pipelines, tanks or other vessels to each other and ensure a safe and hygienic connection.
A TC nozzle consists of a piece of pipe or fitting that has a TC connection on one side. The TC connection consists of a flange-type clamp connection that is secured with a clamp to provide a tight and secure connection. The nozzle can be inserted into a corresponding TC connection on a pipeline or container and secured with the clamp.
In bulk material sampling, a TC nozzle can be used to connect a sampling unit, such as a sampling container or sampling point, to the bulk material line. The use of a TC nozzle allows for quick and easy assembly and disassembly of the sampling unit, making the sampling process more efficient.
In addition, TC connection systems provide a smooth and hygienic surface that is easy to clean and allows for minimal dead space. This is especially important in areas such as the food or pharmaceutical industry, where hygiene and prevention of contamination are of great importance.
In summary, in bulk material sampling, a TC nozzle is a fastener equipped with a TC connection system that provides a safe, hygienic and efficient connection between sampling units and bulk material lines.
