An excellent containment concept well proven over the years in pharma and biopharma industries . With a technology that makes this docking system unique and without compromises from the inventor of the technology.
ASBV-Andocksysteme split butterfly valves consists of an active and a passive valve that are supported on two sides by high-grade precision bearings.
The passive valve can be mounted on the inlet and/ or outlet of a container.
The active valve is operated either manually or automatically, is integrated into the filling or discharging side of the process station, and can be equipped with a range of options. When docking, the GMP designed locking pins centre the active and passive valve on to each other.
Both split valves open simultaneously after docking. During filling and discharging the product is fully contained under perfect conditions.
Whether Alloy 59, HC 22, coatings, or special light weight materials for non-product contacting parts to save weight, seal materials in EPDM, VITON or Perfluoroelastomer – everything is possible. It’s only a matter
of the process requirements.
The docking process can be achieved either with a mobile container such as IBC, using a lifting column, or automatically with lifting cylinders mounted directly on to the active valve.
After undocking, the active valve will return to its centred position. When redocking, the active valve will pinpoint the passive valve with an accuracy of ± 14 mm.
Andock ASBV - Active Valve With Locking Pins
For simple and easy cleaning of the valves, it is possible to rotate the split butterfly valve halves outwards by 180 degrees.
Before dis-connecting the active and passive the assembly can be docked with a CIP dome which includes a static or rotating CIP spray ball.
Alternatively and uniquely to the Andock ASBV system, the active valve flap can be removed from the housing using a suction pad without the need to disconnect the hoses and cables from the actuators or controls.
With the need for ever shorter downtimes in the pharma and biopharma industries, production can be resumed after five minutes simply by installing another active valve.
Containment of product is assured at all times.
