When processing tablets or capsules, it is essential to minimise the risk of damage.
One way to do this is to use specialised valves for handling. Tablet valves have a soft silicone leaf in place of the standard stainless-steel item and the soft edge prevents damage during closing.
The flexible leaf is co-moulded in FDA compatible silicone and is a direct replacement for a standard valve leaf which means the Oyster™ Tablet valve is available in all the same configurations, including:
- Compact Series
We can also supply a Rotary dosing Valve version of this valve.
All Oyster™ branded sanitary valves are designed according to cGMP standards, for trouble free operation and easy maintenance. The valve design ensures optimal hygienic and functional characteristics and eliminates recesses with hard-to-clean corners. Oyster™ branded valves are manufactured to exacting tolerances and finished to the highest pharmaceutical standards.
