Habonim 3-piece sanitary bottom valves according to ASME BPE – series R48

Product information

Our series R48 Habonim bottom valves with ISO 5211 mounting flange are widely used for API service in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry. The bore of the valve exactly matches the ID of the tubing, thus preventing contamination and making the system cleanable. Construction materials are carefully selected for low ferrite content and the sulphur content is monitored to prevent rouging and corrosion.  

These ball valves feature the patented Total HermetiX™ stem seal (certified for 500,000 cycles according to ISO 15848-1), are fitted with double body seals and contain USP Class VI suitable polymers and elastomers. Thanks to the fire safe design without the use of graphite seals, these ball valves offer the unique combination of FDA approval and fire safe functionality.
