26.03.2018 Hypergienic rotary valves

Gericke RotaVal, Chippenham, UK, has introduced two rotary valves specifically designed for the pharmaceutical industry.  Available in sizes from 80mm to 250mm, they are fully machined from solid metal and embody a range of detailed features which allow them to meet the most stringent pharmaceutical requirements.
 
Both units offer rapid access for cleaning: the HGMC is a rotary valve designed for easy manual cleaning and the HGMF is a railed fast clean version.  These features help ensure minimum downtimes and the ability to be cleaned by plant operators without the need for any special tools. All surfaces are self-draining and full clean-in-place is available.  There is a special multi-function shaft seal design including an FDA double-lip seal assembly which enables the clean-in-place, drying and air purge.
 
Optional features include pharmaceutical standard seals to provide secure connection between body, end covers and inlet/outlet connections.  The valves can be fully tested and certified against 10 barg internal explosion and flame containment and there are isolator versions available. www.rotaval.co.uk
