ARTeSYN® Single/Multi-Use Process Fluid Control Technology
Huge strides have been made in the last several years in single-use/disposable process materials, science, and technology. However, valve technology has languished, with process equipment makers and end users trying to make-do with old-technology approaches to process fluid control such as guillotine style pinch valves which can leak and have poor flow control characteristics, and polymer “throw away” diaphragm valves that have all of the traditional issues of excessive hold-up volumes and inconsistent flow control. ARTeSYN® valves have been designed to meet the unique challenges of this new paradigm. The patented ARTeSYN® design is truly a revolutionary fluid management solution for all disposable process systems. ARTeSYN® valves may be single or multi-valve arrays that clamp over the individual tubes of a fabricated tubing set or they may be single or multi-valve arrays that utilize ARTeSYN® molded siliconee single-piece multi-leg liners. Either way, the ARTeSYN® single use concept provides outstanding performance with unmatched flow controllability. These features allow operation in virtually any disposable process layout and all ARTeSYN® valves can be supplied with automation capabilities tailored to specific requirements. Many biopharmaceutical makers, both in-house and CMO alike, are utilizing ARTeSYN® valves in single-use/disposable operations, both upstream and down.
The rapidly growing group of enthusiastic ARTeSYN® customers presently includes:
Many of the most prominent of the single-use process skid makers are now building their equipment with automated ARTeSYN® valves for process flow control in their systems. They include:
With ARTeSYN®, end users and systems builders alike have found that they can now achieve disposable system process fluid control that has previously been unattainable
