Understanding 3A Sanitary Certification

In industries where precision and hygiene are paramount, such as food and beverage production, the choice of equipment is critical. When it comes to flow measurement, ensuring sanitary conditions is non-negotiable. This is where the 3A Sanitary Certification comes into play, ensuring that equipment meets rigorous standards for cleanliness and safety.

3A Sanitary Standards are established by the 3A Sanitary Standards, Inc., an organization dedicated to promoting hygiene and sanitation in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. These standards govern the design, materials, and construction of equipment to ensure it is safe for use in sanitary applications.

Key criteria for 3A certification include:

  1. Material Compatibility: Only materials that are resistant to corrosion, contamination, and degradation are permitted.

  2. Hygienic Design: Equipment must be designed to prevent product buildup, facilitate thorough cleaning, and minimize the risk of contamination.

  3. Manufacturing Processes: Strict protocols must be followed during fabrication to maintain the sanitary integrity of the equipment.

You can search the 3A Sanitary Standards website to find out if the product you are looking to purchase is 3A Certified. You can search by company and view the certificates to find the specific model number you are interested in.
