The G.M.P. Fabrication can be utilized to virtually eliminate dead
leg in the design of point of use outlets in a typical WFI distribution
loop. The process fluid flows through the valve body. As demand
warrants, the valve is opened providing an uncontaminated sample
untainted by bacterial growth or contaminants which may accumulate
in outlet greater than 6D.
The outlet can also be utilized as steam condensate drain or as
a divert port. The valve had been modified to accept a third port
of the same diameter pr smaller positioned adjacent to the weir
at the bottom of the valve. Typically the G.M.P. valve is oriented
in the vertical position for horizontal applications, the sterile
access valve is recommended. The G.M.P. configuration is available
in sizes ¼", 4" (DNB-100) and can be supplied with
buttweld or ferrule end connections.
