Innovative solution for networking multi-port valve manifolds

The Ingelfingen-based technology company GEMÜ has launched two new solutions for the connection of single-use multi-port valve blocks.

Firstly, it is now possible to control the locking of the valve block pneumatically via locking cylinders. This is done by means of a valve block that is recessed into the surface of the system.

On the other hand, the solution consists of a valve block placed on the surface of the system. In this case, the valve body is connected to the drive unit manually via a removable hand lever. The latter variant offers greater flexibility in the arrangement of the spigots.

New solution reduces negative environmental impact

The coupling between the actuators and the diaphragms welded onto the valve block succeeds reliably within a few seconds with the help of the clamping principle known from the GEMÜ SU40 SUMONDO. The multi-way valve blocks themselves are produced by machining and can therefore be individually designed.

The use of single-use technologies offers several advantages: Saving conventional cleaning cycles and the associated expenditure on energy, cleaning media, waste disposal and peripheral equipment, while increasing protection against cross-contamination between different manufacturing campaigns.

In addition, factory downtime is minimised, which significantly improves the flexibility and effectiveness of single-use solutions in medical and pharmaceutical applications compared to conventional solutions. Furthermore, the use of single-use technology reduces the negative environmental impact due to the elimination of energy-intensive cleaning cycles.
