Continuous chromatography machine for process development and single-use
An analytical instrument manufacturer was designing a continuous
chromatography machine for process development and single-use manufacturing.
The machine incorporated a pneumatic valve to apply pressure to a proprietary
diaphragm valve. The customer required a pneumatic valve that could operate
with high pressure (300 psig) and low flow (<.025 Cv), plus be connected to
an Ethernet control system.
The customer turned to ASCO's Analytical and Medical Group to design a
turnkey fluid automation solution. ASCO was the only supplier that could meet
the applications high-pressure, low-flow, and Ethernet connectivity
requirements in one package. The custom manifold assembly combined the 411 Series miniature valves with a G3 Ethernet manifold. ASCO's capability to meet
the application's demanding requirements meant the customer did not have to
redesign the instrument to operate at lower pressure and higher flow. The analytical instrument manufacturer was pleased with the solution's
performance and is working with ASCO on the next generation of products.
