The Sterivalve® has a unique patented design using a configuration in which the valve diaphragm is clamped between the valve body and the actuator. All moving parts in the actuator are completely isolated from contact with the process fluid and tools are not required for disassembly or service for most valve sizes. All materials of construction conform to FDA and GMP requirements. Both the valve housing and the piping connections are self draining without dead-legs. This will result in a reduction in hold up volume of the complete piping system.
The Sterivalve® has been used 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 process. The self-draining and open internal structure of the valve housing also ensure safe and reproducible CIP and SIP performance; thus avoiding the risk of bacterial and endotoxin contamination, or undesirable temperature gradients. It is also possible to clean and sterilize both the inlet and outlet pathways of the Sterivalve in the closed position if required.
The manufacturing of Sterivalve® is quality assured and certified in accordance with ISO 9001 and benefits from our extensive experience within the pharmaceutical industry.
