Pure steam solutions ... GEMU 505 manually operated

 
When it comes to applications in complex pure steam systems such as in the foodstuff or pharmaceutical industry, you can’t go past GEMU.
 
GEMU’s new 505/555 pure steam valve is made of high-quality materials and offers optimal processing of individual media.
 
It also has many advantages in terms of performance and maintenance. 
 
In the foodstuffs industry, the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and even in other industrial sectors, products must sometimes be manufactured aseptically. 
 
As a result, stringent requirements are made of the purity of the working media, which are used during manufacture and even the quality of the steam used. 
 
If steam comes into contact with surfaces or directly with liquid or gaseous products during aseptic production, this contact must satisfy the purity requirements of these products. 
 
The solution is found in complex pure steam systems at product requirement level. GEMU has long maintained intensive contacts with plant engineers and operators who have these systems in use.
 
The valves provide a genuine alternative to most current valve types.
 
Because the handwheel does not rise in height when the valve is manually operated, it is now possible to open the valve slowly and steadily. 
 
As a result, the steam does not flow suddenly into the piping system when the valves are opened. 
 
In contrast to 90° turn valves, such as ball valves or butterfly valves, this benefit is highly appreciated by users of the GEMÜ 505. 
 
Also, when compared with diaphragm valves, the globe valves have benefits in these applications as they require significantly less maintenance, especially at the high temperatures produced by the steam. 
 
When designing the new globe valve range, GEMU ensured all quality and safety requirements demanded of pure steam processes were met.
 
At the same time they were keen to ensure the valves offer customers value for money.
 
All wetted parts are made of high quality stainless steel (316L), while internally the valve body is actually mechanically machined clean and externally electropolished. 
 
Established in 1964, GEMU is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of valves, measurement and control systems. The company is the world market leader for sterile valve applications in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.
