Gemu used a multi-port valve block from the iComLine series to meet a customer request that specified precise dosing of ultra pure water with heavy-duty switching cycles and a long service life.
The multi-port valve block from the iComLine series is made from ultra pure PVDF and features innovative seat diaphragm technology with PTFE, a combination that allows very heavy-duty switching cycles and temperature resistance up to 150°C.
Multi-port valve blocks combine multiple valve seats in one unit, allowing plants to now be built much more compactly since the pipe connections, fittings and even various sensor components can be integrated together.
Through customised calculations and configuration of the regulating cones, it is possible to implement Open/Close functions along with very specific control characteristics. In this particular case, three millilitres of ultra pure water are output precisely within just 60 milliseconds.
Backed by over 20 years of experience in the manufacture of stainless steel multi-port valve blocks as well as handling critical media in the semiconductor industry, Gemu has now been able to successfully transfer this expertise to the field of high-performance thermoplastics.
Gemu Australia specialises in the supply of butterfly valves, globe valves, diaphragm valves, and plastic and metal ball valves.
