The new BioviZion valve (photo) is an ultra-compact model available in diameters ranging from 0.25 to 0.5 in. for sampling and low-flow bioprocessing applications. BioviZion valves include a mechanical thermal-compensation system wherein a sealing force is constantly applied to prevent external leaking over a range of temperature changes. A quick-change bonnet is said to significantly reduce maintenance time tenfold. A patented diaphragm stud enables simple and quick installation. The valves’ high-strength stainless-steel studs avoid the challenges associated with small fasteners. — ITT Engineered Valves, Seneca Falls, N.Y.
