Controlled process reliability: GEMÜ SUMONDO
As the world's first single-use diaphragm valve, the GEMÜ SUMONDO represents the long-awaited paradigm shift in single-use technology: From manual systems to automation-capable and controllable plants for faultless operation and continual documentation by the plant monitoring system.
The major advantage of GEMÜ SUMONDO in comparison with conventional pinch valves lies in the exact controllability of processes. Using a tried and tested actuator design from conventional plant engineering, the actuator can also transmit feedback to the plant monitoring system as required to ensure complete monitoring of the controlled system. This means that, in particular, pharmaceutical processes can be more easily documented, reproduced and validated. The increased levels of automation also mean that the systems are less susceptible to faults.
The animation shows how the single-use valve body can be easily replaced with a badge. In this case, the actuator remains in the plant and is connected to a new gamma-sterilized body.
