The TuBore series is Habonim’s line of sanitary ball valves for the pharmaceutical, bioprocessing, food and beverage industries. The valves comply with ASME BPE standard for applications in which sterility, cleanability and drainability are essential for product quality.
Because the TuBore valve port diameter is identical to the tube inner diameter, no expansion or contraction can take place inside the system resulting in full drainage and no traces that could cause contamination. The TuBore line excels at maximum flow capacity and minimum pressure drop and provides low-torque tight shutoff. The TuBore series is grouped into three geometric designs according to the ASME BPE, ISO 1127 and DIN 11850 tube dimension specifications.
Only FDA and USP Class VI compliant polymers or elastomers are used in the TuBore series. To avoid rouging on austenitic stainless steel surfaces and corrosion attack on welding areas, low ferrite cast or forged bar materials are used and polished. Upon request, electro-polished surface finishes are available. Purge and drain ports are available upon request to facilitate CIP/SIP operation.
Diverter and various multiport configurations based on the TuBore™ model are also available.
