Gemü Valves has developed an aseptic diaphragm valve with a design that makes it particularly suitable for hygiene critical process areas.
The Gemü M Block range of manifold valves are of a generic weir-type concept, which use existing diaphragm and actuation technology.
Historically, two-way diaphragm valves were installed into systems in welded assemblies. The dangers here are in the potential for bug traps from poor welds, deadlegs and the large overall size of the welded assembly. And then there is the high cost of designing, fabricating and installing these often unwieldy constructions.
The Gemü M Block hygienic manifolds are said to resolve all these problems. They feature a design in which increasing numbers of valves are machined from a single block.
A typical application is where plants require a take-off valve on a pure water ring main, but need to sample water quality into sample bottles at the point of use (before the take off) as well as sample water quality into sample bottles after the point of use (after the take off) and have a steam injection point valve after the deadleg valve to sterilise across this interface.
The M Block M600 06 0 P valve is a compact unit which fulfils all these functions with six ports and four valves.
Manifolds can be machined with from two to 12 ports and up to 12 valves reaching one metre in length.
