Your key to aseptic success.
The Sterivalve® range provides high
performance flow control for critical pharmaceutical &
biopharmaceutical liquid processes. Using an optimised hydrodynamic
design, Sterivalve® combines the best features of a traditional
piston valve with the inherent cleanliness of a flat diaphragm valve.
This combination of features ensures that Sterivalve® offers the
unique combination of high flow characteristics together with a
proven sanitary design. Sterivalve® is made from durable materials
with a robust construction, which together give a long service life
under demanding conditions.
Aseptic design for optimised performance.
Sterivalve® has a unique patented design using a secure double seal
configuration in which the valve diaphragm is clamped between the
valve body and the actuator. All moving parts in the actuator are
totally isolated from contact with the process fluid and no tools
are required for disassembly or service. All materials of
construction conform to FDA regulatory and GMP requirements. Both
the valve housing and the piping connections are completely free
draining without “deadlegs”; this arrangement ensures reliable
cleaning in place (CIP) and sterilisation in place (SIP).
specifying Sterivalve®, the total number of valves in a system may
be reduced by up to 30% in comparison with traditional flat
diaphragm valves. This also permits a reduction in the total hold up
volume of the complete piping system.
Sterivalve® has been
established and validated in a wide range of clean and sterile
processes worldwide. The design of the housing, which features a low
residual internal volume, ensures optimal velocity of cleaning
agents during the CIP sequence. The freedraining and “open” internal
structure of the valve housing also ensures safe and reproducible
CIP/SIP performance; thus avoiding the risk of bacterial and
endotoxin contamination, or undesirable temperature gradients. It is
also possible to clean and sterilise both the inlet and outlet
pathways of a Sterivalve® in the “closed” position if required.
These features enable the process engineer to design an efficient
pipe work system with optimised, riskfree, product flow.
Total quality concept.
The manufacturing of Sterivalve® is quality assured
and certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and benefits from our
extensive experience within the pharmaceutical industry.
