GEMÜ M blocks for sterile applications
Complex processes – often using complicated welded assemblies – are still being implemented today, more than 20 years after the market launch of the first M blocks. The valves, fittings and pipe components used for this require a lot of space, a greater installation and welding effort on site and lead to a correspondingly high validation expense. Not to mention a high hold-up volume and larger deadlegs in compliance with the conventional 6D or 3D rules.
The animation shows how a complicated welded assembly can be replaced with one block of material which is also designed to be optimized in terms of draining and dead space (low hold-up volume, small wetted area, minimal dead space).
