The Biopure Corporation in Cambridge, Massachusetts was faced with a challenging fluid distribution problem. In this new application, a common transfer panel would be both costly and hard to access. Additionally, Biopure wanted to reduce the risk of human error and potential chemical exposure, while floor space.

Bürkert supplied two Robolux two multi-port valves, which provided a compact, economic and easily automated solution. This permitted any possible combination of flow pathways - an important feature that that would have been difficult to accomplish with a transfer panel.

Before moving forward with the installation, the Robolux valves had to meet Biopure's demanding requirements for steam-in-place (SIP). One valve was tested for two months and 20,000 cycles under real-life conditions of steam, pressure and flow. The valve performed excellently without any measurable change in flow capacity (CV) or physical changes to the diaphragm shape or its integrity.
