Single Use Control Valve

Flow control and pressure control for BioPharma processes

  • image of the Equilibar single use back pressure regulator for biopharma use
The Equilibar back pressure control valve is now available in a Single Use format to accommodate the rapidly expanding requirements of BioPharma industry. Single Use processes require lower cost components that can be sterilized through irradiation and disposed of after use. The patent pending Equilibar Single Use design offers USP Class VI polymers that can be sterilized as an assembly. Only the wetted components and diaphragm are disposable, and are inserted into a permanent stainless steel support housing for quick and easy assembly.

Pressure range: 0-7 bar(g)

Tubing size: 1/4″ (6 mm) to 1″ (25 mm) tubing

Available USP Class VI Body Materials:

  • Polycarbonate (such as Ensinger TECANAT™ PC)
  • Polypropylene (such as Flint Hill 11R12A)
  • Co-polyester (such as Eastman Tritan MX710)
  • PEEK (such as Röchling SustaPEEK MG)

Available USP Class VI Diaphragm Materials:

  •  Thermoplastic PolyUrethane (such as Parker ALC Medical Grade)
  • Polyolefin

The valve’s patent pending design offers USP Class VI polymers that can be sterilized as an assembly. 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 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.
