The TuBore™ line is Habonim’s sanitary ball valves for the Biotech industry. The valves comply with the ASME BPE standard for applications in which cleanability and drainability are essential for product quality.
The standard, highly durable stem seal for all TuBore™ valves is Habonim’s patented HermetiX™ stem seal, made solely from FDA-approved polymer materials, the HermetiX™ stem seal enhances productivity and safety by virtually eliminating leaks, shutdowns, hazardous spillage, etc.
The valve port diameter is identical to the tube inner diameter so that no expansion or contraction can take place inside the system, resulting in full drainage and zero traces that could cause contamination.
To provide superior welding quality, to avoid rouging on austenitic stainless steel surfaces, and corrosion attack on welding areas, The TuBore™ metal parts are defined, as standard, with low ferrite (FE < 2%) and controlled sulfur (0.005% < S < 0.017 %).
Upon request a forged 316L stainless steel material with ferrite content less than 1% is also available.
