Based on the PD design, GEMÜ has applied state-of-the-art technology to design a new filling valve platform to expand on previous solution approaches, and to highlight new solutions in the area of fluid filling applications in the pharmaceutical, food, and biotech sectors.
Over many years, GEMÜ has developed relevant expertise in the area of filling processes in order to provide support for machine users and plant designers in overcoming application problems and supporting new technologies, and in designing the relevant new valve solutions. The PD design enables the moving parts of the actuator to be hermetically separated from the product area by the PD diaphragm, enabling a very high number of switching cycles and a high positioning accuracy. The filling valve platform achieves impressive, previously unheard of actuator speeds of up to 300 mm/s (over ten times the opening and closing speeds of previous valves), while at the same time offering unparalleled protection for the diaphragm.
The filling valve platform includes the following variants: The F40 valve as a pneumatic version, and the types F60 and F62 as the first electrical filling valve versions. The pneumatically operated F40 versions (depending on version) can be equipped with all GEMÜ automation components such as stroke limiters, electrical position indicators, and controllers.
The unique, innovative filling valve platform can be used in all filling processes, in hygienic areas right up to aseptic plants in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and food and beverage industries. The new filling valves are also suitable for industrial processes and corrosive media. In particular due to its unique PTFE seal system without lift effect, the newly developed filling valve platform is ideally suited to all media containing oils and fat, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. At the same time, the flow-optimized valve body and PD geometry enable optimized CIP/SIP processes, which is particularly important for improved cleaning of all media-wetted parts, especially for viscous media.
The pneumatic version of GEMÜ F40 is also ideally suited for the media distribution (vacuum, liquid, and gaseous media) for all types of filling machines.
