New York, NY (March 25, 2013) – CRANE ChemPharma and Energy, will showcase its Saunders brand products at Interphex 2013 (April 23-25, Javits Center, New York City, Booth# 3729). Products on display include: Saunders® I-VUE, Saunders® EX, and Saunders® S360. In addition, CRANE will promote its popular Bio-Pharm online tools: www.cranebiopharm.com.
“We are excited to participate in this year’s Interphex Trade show. Not only is it a great venue for us to showcase our products within the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industry, but it allows us the opportunity to demonstrate our appreciation to our partners at the breakfast event we host each year,” said Andrew Powell, Vice President / General Manager, CRANE ChemPharma and Energy, Saunders.
Saunders® I-VUE Intelligent Sensing Technology
The Saunders® I-VUE is a smart valve sensor designed specifically for aseptic diaphragm valve applications in the Life Science industry. Compatible with Point-to-Point (P2P), AS-i, and DeviceNet control systems, the Saunders® I-VUE offers substantial benefits over standard switch controls. Enhance reliability and accuracy with Saunders® I-VUE solid state continuous sensing technology that provides precise position readings for the entire valve range from 0.25” to 4.00” (DN8 to DN100). Simplify installation by utilizing automated valve calibration without opening the IP67 rated polycarbonate sensor enclosure, reducing set up times to 3 minutes or less. Lower maintenance costs by applying factory or user defined device settings to monitor valve cycle count and end point tolerance limits, preventing false alarms and unnecessary diaphragm replacement.
Saunders® EX Endurance Diaphragm
Designed as a niche market solution for critical Life Science applications that require reliable high temperature performance for extended periods of time, the Saunders® EX Endurance Diaphragm can be used in steam distribution and supply, sterile barrier and block and bleed applications. Key features include a distinctive design that benefits users through its extended life at Steam Sterilization Temperatures, and reduces the requirement to re-tighten fasteners after installation. Furthermore, the Saunders® EX’s advanced “Seal-to-Atmosphere” qualities reduce the risk of leakage into the atmosphere during long term steam service.
Saunders® S360 Actuator for Life Science Applications
The Saunders® S360 Actuator is a compact, lightweight, piston-type pneumatic actuator with a modular range that delivers optimum dimensional envelope and closure performance. The full 360° rotation capability of this range of actuators allows for flexible installation and air port alignment, and its smooth corrosion resistant profile optimizes cleanability. This combination of quality performance and hygienic design makes the Saunders® S360 appropriate for sterile BioPharm applications, including clean utilities, fermentation and downstream processing.
