Success Story B.Braun

B. Braun Melsungen AG is one of the leading companies in the international pharmaceutical and medication sector. The company is currently building the LIFE Nutrition plant, one of the world’s most modern production sites for innovative nutrition solutions, at the company headquarters in  Melsungen.

With the multi-port valve Robolux Bürkert has a patented solution in its portfolio for achieving very complex and compact valve interfaces with a low internal volume. Within a few weeks and based on the specifications, Bürkert developed models for the first, especially complex valve interfaces, which were professionally visualized and presented with the help of modern 3D PDF files. “The advantages of a Robolux multi-port system in comparison with conventional single-layer valve interfaces and ring systems were literally evident at first glance”, says Alexander Equit, National Key Account Manager for Pharma, Biotech and Fine Chemistry at Bürkert.

Solutions for clinical nutrition such as amino acid solutions, carbohydrate solutions and fat emulsions are manufactured and packaged in two production lines at the new manufacturing facility with an integrated lab.

With the multi-port valve Robolux Bürkert has a patented solution in its portfolio for achieving very complex and compact valve interfaces with a low internal volume. Within a few weeks and based on the specifications, Bürkert developed models for the first, especially complex valve interfaces. The special feature of the patented Robolux valve design is that two independent process switching functions can be achieved with one membrane. This reduces installation requirements, eliminates T-adapters and minimizes the overall number of valves and membranes needed. After the Robolux valve interfaces convinced the decision-makers, Bürkert was granted the contract in September 2009 to deliver not only the valve interfaces, but all process fittings for the LIFE Nutrition plant. Among others, Bürkert valve types 2031, 2032, 2033 and 2034 are used.
