Burkert has installed a Robolux valve system on a machine that fills asthma inhaler cartridges for a pharmaceutical company.

The Robolux design has enabled the company to reduce the costs of the system by cutting the valve requirement from eight diaphragm valves down to four.

As Burkert’s integrated design has only one block – compared to two for competitors – there are fewer weld connections for the customer to make, reducing installation time and validation costs; the integrated design also means that internal volumes are smaller, eliminating deadlegs and maximising sterility.

The design specification for the asthma inhaler project called for a valve system that would reduce the internal volume and the number of pipe connections on the filling and cleaning lines of the machine.

It projected a total of eight aseptic diaphragm valves per machine to carry out the control of the filling and cleaning lines.

Burkert’s offering used the Type 2034 Robolux diaphragm valves mounted on a single customised stainless-steel block.

The company also offered a Type 5470 manifold block to pilot the valve block, providing a complete system solution from one supplier.

The layout of the 2034 and the valve block means that internal volumes in the Burkert system are smaller than other offerings.
