Habonim TUBORE sanitary hygienic ball valve
– Pharmaceutical and Biopharma
– Food & Beverage industries
While reducing fugitive emissions is a leading concern in the fight against climate change
Habonim created a zero leak ball valve’s stem principle that is called Hermetix stem sealing
This unique Hermetix valve’s stem sealing is using PTFE based material or NON-GRAPHITE material
(graphite is very easy to dis-integrate if the valve stem is very often to be turned/rotated to open or close the ball valve in the long run)
Habonim Hermetix stem sealed ball valves are tested & are certified based on:
– ISO-15848-1 test standard (tested 4,500 cycles between -29 to 200 deg C)
– API 641 test standard (tested with methane for 610 cycles and 100 ppmv leak rate)
The TuBore™ 48 Series for Biotech industries
The TuBore™ line is Habonim’s clean ball valves for the Biotech industry. The valves comply with the ASME BPE standard for applications in which cleanability and drainability are essential for product quality.
The standard, highly durable stem seal for all TuBore™ valves is Habonim’s patented HermetiX™ stem seal, made solely from FDA-approved polymer materials, the HermetiX™ stem seal enhances productivity and safety by virtually eliminating leaks, shutdowns, hazardous spillage, etc.
The TuBore™ comes with a maintenance-free warranty of 4 years or 500,000 cycles.
The valve port diameter is identical to the tube inner diameter so that no expansion or contraction can take place inside the system, resulting in full drainage and zero traces that could cause contamination.
To provide superior welding quality, to avoid rouging on austenitic stainless steel surfaces, and corrosion attack on welding areas, The TuBore™ metal parts are defined, as standard, with low ferrite (FE < 2%) and controlled sulfur (0.005% < S < 0.017 %). Upon request a forged 316L stainless steel material with ferrite content less than 1% is also available.
