The Single Use Equilibar features the same dome-loaded multiple orifice technology as all Equilibar patented products, delivering instantaneous control, frictionless operation, superior precision, and exceptionally wide flow rate ranges. Its strengths are particularly well suited to control the transmembrane pressure in tangential flow filtration control applications.
The Equilibar SD series valves are manufactured and assembled in a class 7 clean room. Each unit is shipped in two hermetically sealed plastic bags. While typically provided unsterilized so that it can be cleaned as part of a larger assembly, the SD series is optionally available sterilized by Gamma radiation.
Pressure range: 0-4 bar(g) / 0 – 60 psig
Tubing size: 1/2″ (12.5 mm) to 1″ (25 mm) tubing
Manufactured using USP Class VI body materials such as:
- Copolyester (such as Eastman Tritan MX710)
- High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
- Polypropylene (such as Flint Hill 11R12A)
- PEEK (such as Röchling SustaPEEK MG)
USP Class VI Diaphragm Materials:
- Thermoplastic Polyurethane – TPU – (such as Parker ALC Medical Grade)
Equilibar regulators feature ultra sensitive diaphragm-operated back pressure technology capable of controlling pressure with high precision over a wide range of flows. It fully opens in less than 1% overpressure in most applications. The stability of the Equilibar regulator is unmatched in the industry. The graph below shows the performance of a 1/2” single use regulator with water.
In addition to pressure control applications, the Equilibar® valve can be used in on/off applications in Single Use processes. Potential advantages for on/off applications include the simple construction, ease of computer automation, and low pressure drop.
