    The SUMONDO SINGLE-USE DIAPHRAGM VALVE has expanded its size range!

    GEMÜ, the leading manufacturer of valve designs for the pharmaceutical industry, has established the first controllable single-use diaphragm valve on the market – the GEMÜ SUMONDO. In addition to a pneumatically operated version, the product range also includes a version with a handwheel for manual operation.  The manual operator is also autoclavable.

    Due to increasing customer demand, the range has been expanded in the area of associated valve bodies. With a third diaphragm size, another high-performance member has been added to the product range.  This new size is the largest valve of its type to-date, with up to a 1" diameter process connection size available. This means that applications can be handled for which higher medium flows and precise controllability are required.

    Produced and packaged in the cleanroom, the single-use valve bodies comply with most requirements for pharmaceutical processes. The application possibilities do not stop with pharmaceutical processes. In other areas, such as research centers and laboratory facilities, the valves become a cost-efficient and, above all, safe solution. The risk of cross contamination is considerably reduced, cleaning costs are significantly reduced, and plant downtimes are reduced to a minimum. Even with smaller batches and more frequent changes of media, the advantages of the SUMONDO valve quickly become apparent and prove themselves in terms of cost.

    The GEMÜ single-use solution outperforms conventional pinch valve systems in a large number of cases. The controllability becomes considerably more precise, and the flow rates remain constant even with intensive use. With GEMÜ SUMONDO, it becomes possible to implement entirely new process functions in single-use applications – functions that could not be implemented with conventional systems. This includes processes for mixing, dosing and distributing media or controlling the transmembrane pressure in a plant. This function is always precise, reproducible and, if required, also automated – thanks to the pneumatic actuator option. Alternatively, the manual operator, with a robust plastic handwheel and definable stroke, provides reliable opening, closing and precise setting of the volumetric flow.

    The underlying idea of the SUMONDO single use diaphragm valve can be summarized as follows: A valve body for single use and an operator for repeated use. With this combination, the foundation is laid for cost-effective processes of the highest quality. The optional instrumentation completes this valve solution and makes it intelligent.

    When reviewing the SUMONDO valve offering, you will notice that new connection sizes with various connection types are now available. These range from 1/4" to 1", from the clamp connection (3/4” and 1”) to the hose barb (1/4” – 1”). This wide selection enables a more flexible system design and a wider scope of controllability with flow rates of 0.54  to 14.11 GPM.

    Innovative developments inside the valve have produced something from which the user can benefit: The optimized seat contour and the modified diaphragm material will provide a more reliable fit, maximum tightness and an even longer life for the valve body.

    With GEMÜ SUMONDO, the operators of single-use systems have a solution at their disposal. A solution that impresses all thanks to its safety, quality and efficiency.

    With its modular system, GEMÜ can provide individually adapted customer solutions to meet specific requirements and supplies everything from a single source....

  • Customer requests for high switching cycles and long service life when working with ultra pure or corrosive media have been answered by GEMÜ with their iComLine-series multi-port valves. Tested to five million switching cycles (!), the multi-port valve allows maintenance-friendly, safe operation of pneumatic actuators at up to six bar. Thanks to the design and materials used, isolation and control of the media current is possible without impairment even when operated with very rapid switching cycles and at temperatures up to 150 °C. The use of an innovative pretensioning element also ensures external leak tightness, even in the event of temperature fluctuations and settling, which can occur on plastic parts under extreme conditions of use.

    Depending on the application, the seated diaphragm technology of GEMÜ offers a different and sometimes significantly superior performance profile for dosing applications compared to both pinch valves and conventional diaphragm valves. For example, the one-piece PTFE diaphragm is pressed linearly against the seat during the closing process, allowing it to exhibit a minimal contact area with the valve body.

    Alongside conventional open/closed control operations, the iComLine product range is also able to implement control operations with a parabolic or linear characteristic. The corresponding regulating cones are calculated and designed on a customized basis. Check valves and sensor systems such as pressure and temperature sensors as well as threaded filter housing connections can also be integrated into the multi-port valve block.
