ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT) is pleased to announce that the Pure-Flo® EnviZion® hygienic diaphragm valve, marketed by its Engineered Valves brand, has passed the ASME BPE 2014 Edition Appendix J testing, reaching the test’s maximum cycle rating at three times the required test pressure.
Established in 1997, the ASME BPE Standard provides the requirements applicable to the design of equipment used in the bioprocessing, pharmaceutical and personal-care products industries. In 2014 the Part SG Sealing Components subcommittee published Appendix J, a set of Standard Process Test Conditions (SPTC) for seal performance including diaphragm valve diaphragms. This test has validated the design integrity and reliability of the EnviZion valve’s live thermal cycle compensation system. With these test results, Biopharm manufacturers can assure diaphragm performance, allowing them to lower contamination risks, develop preventative maintenance programs, and reduce their total cost of ownership.
The EnviZion valve is now also available in 2”, completing the 0.5” – 2” size range typically required for most Biopharm manufacturers. Named a 2014 Breakthrough Product of the Year by Processing magazine, the EnviZion valve is addressing the biggest challenges in the Biopharm industry. From critical sterile boundary applications to clean-in-place (CIP) skids, the EnviZion valve has provided reliable solutions when competitive valves could not deliver the required performance.
“Customers from all segments of the hygienic markets have seen the value in reliability and maintenance savings the EnviZion valve has to offer,” said Dave Loula, global product director for ITT’s Engineered Valves brand. “Whether it’s for the mega Biopharm manufacturer, contract drug manufacturer or even food and beverage producer, the EnviZion valve has produced impressive results.”
