GEA Pharma Systems split butterfly valve, the BUCK MC, is a modular, off-the-shelf solution for powder handling of potent active ingredients. The design facilitates fast product changeovers and contained charging/discharging of potent actives from one vessel to another. The valve offers free-oriented docking, a dust- and contamination-free interface, and easy maintenance. Removable hoppers and supplementary extraction provide increased safety for operators and facilitate cleaning. APIs can be dispensed into a contained charge vessel, which can then be safely transported to the point of use within the plant.
