Manual: Baumann 85000 Sanitary Pinch Valve

Source: Emerson Process Management

Baumann 85000 sanitary pinch valves are intended for use with up to 3/4 inch O.D. pharmaceutical grade tubing. They are designed to couple FIELDVUE™ digital valve controller intelligence with a linear actuator and tube shell.

The 85000 is designed for use in both biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, where cleanliness and sterility are required. The primary use is for disposable skid-based processes, replacing traditional manually operated valves. Automated valves offer consistent quality, better record keeping, and improved batch control.

Lab testing resulted in a max capacity of 6.5 Cv achieved with standard pharmaceutical grade tubing.

Features and Benefits

  • Characterization of the Fisher® FIELDVUE digital valve controller provides an installed equal percent flow characteristic for precision control
  • The 85000 has no physical contact with the process fluid, due to the use of disposable tubing
  • Tube shell design of the 85000 allows for easy changeout of disposable tubing while providing stability during service
  • Fail-close configuration
  • Compact and light weight design
  • Epoxy powder-coated actuator with SST fasteners for maximum corrosion resist
