Patented Hygienic Spray Deflector reduces tank spray loss, vent filter saturation, potential for burst rupture disk

SUN PRAIRIE, Wisc. ─ Sani-Matic received a patent for the new Hygienic Spray Deflector, featuring a tri-clamp connected housing with an interior reversed dish designed to deflect spray solution from exiting a tank.

The Hygienic Spray Deflector is designed for tanks and vessels where spray devices are used to clean the interior. These vessels include CIP tanks, process tanks, bioreactors and fermenters.

It redirects sprayed solution back into the process tank, while still allowing for tank port cleaning. When following the recommended spray device operating requirements, the Hygienic Spray Deflector’s design reduces solution from exiting open-to-atmosphere tanks.  The Hygienic Spray Deflector reduces vent filter saturation for closed process tanks, minimizing the potential for a burst rupture disk.

The Hygienic Spray Deflector patent was published on March 31, 2020 under Patent No. 10,603,679, with Sani-Matic sales engineer Solo Yang listed as the inventor.
