Type M600 For Sterile Applications
GEMÜ M600 multi-port valves are the most progressive solution for meeting the high demands of the pharmaceutical industry. Complex processes using welded fabrications are often still being implemented today, more than 15 years after the market launch of the first M-blocks. The valves, fittings and pipe components used for this require a lot of space, a greater installation and welding effort on site and lead to a correspondingly high validation expense. Not to mention a high hold-up volume and larger deadlegs in compliance with conventional 6D or 3D rules.
To make processes safer, increase the availability of the plant and reduce the life cycle costs of a plant within the scope of a total cost of ownership concept, GEMÜ has implemented more than 400 different designs and thousands of customized variants of multi-port valves over the years. We support our customers with ideas and initial drafts at the planning phase. The drafts are then implemented constructively in our 3D CAD system, agreed in close co-operation with the customer and then machined in our highly efficient machine park. We machine several thousand blocks weighing between 0.1 kg and 500 kg per year on multi-axis machining centres. Every day, our Design Centre turns out new customized block designs.
The 40R is A high performance actuator which combines reliability and long life and is based on the opposed double rack and pinion principle utilising piston support rods to minimise friction and wear between pistons and body bore.
There are twelve sizes of Norbro double acting or fail safe spring return pneumatic actuators providing a torque range of 11 to 4617 Nm (at an operating pressure of 5.5 bar). This enables efficient and therefore economical torque matching.
A wide range of ancillary equipment can be fitted to meet the most exacting customer requirements. This is an area where Flow Control Solutions Ltd and Worcester has considerable experience and we would be pleased to discuss any process problems. Since the mid-Sixties the Norbro name has been recognised as the leading quarter turn actuator for industry. As proof of this, Norbro pneumatic actuators can be found in a range of applications as diverse as the petrochemical industry, food and beverage, steel production, pharmaceuticals and plastics manufacturing
