Containment Split Butterfly Valve DiscLock

PharmaSafe DiscLock Valve

___

ChargePoint containment transfer valve with patented DiscLock™ feature offers the highest levels of dust particulate control when transferring large volumes of bulk powder materials.

The ChargePoint DiscLock™ powder transfer system ensures operator safety and a reduced risk of cross contamination whilst handling non-sterile chemical, pharmaceutical API and formulation ingredients with validated levels of containment performance.

Product information

ChargePoint DiscLock™ automatic Split Butterfly Valve (SBV) valve utilises a unique locking system to ensure a robust disc to disc containment seal whilst maintaining an overall low-profile that utilises minimum space within an existing or new process set up.

This design ensures there is a much reduced risk of disc separation when forces are being exerted on the valve via IBC loading and offset mechanical forces.

Part of our PharmaSafe range of containment solutions the ChargePoint DiscLock system offers numerous benefits:

  • Safety of personnel and a dust free production environment
  • Reduced risk of contamination, meeting GMP and product quality requirements,
  • Maximising yield by transferring poorly flowing and high value products
  • Removing costly secondary barrier containment and cumbersome PPE.
  • Fully automatic operation including optional raise and lowering with PowerDock™

Two containment performance solutions:

The containment performance of the PharmaSafe valves has been independently validated by customers and third parties according to the ISPE SMEPAC (Standardised Measurement of Equipment Particulate Airborne Contamination) guideline.

The ChargePoint DiscLock™ operates according to the simple split butterfly valve sequence:

  • The active and passive units are docked together. Each unit is sealed and cannot be opened unless they are docked together.
  • The two-disc halves are locked in place to form a single sealed unit. The previously exposed interfaces are now sealed together to form a single butterfly valve disc.
  • The active unit is the driving half of the valve. Once operated the disc will open to allow the transfer of material through the valve. The active and passive interface is sealed to ensure no material can penetrate the critical area. Once the transfer has taken place the valve is closed.
  • The active and passive units are then unlocked revealing the previously closed interfaces ensuring a dust free transfer. An optional higher performance extraction process is available at this point with the PharmaSafe pro

The ChargePoint PharmaSafe® range provides high containment powder transfers for all stages of the production process;
