Crane ChemPharma & Energy, a business of Crane Co., has presented its latest solutions for the Life Sciences industry at the 2019 Interphex Expo. Among Crane’s innovations on display is the Saunders® P345 compact polymer pneumatic actuator which will be showcased to the industry for the first time at Interphex.
Designed to operate at 4.5 bar while maintaining industry-leading closure performance of up to 10 bar at 100% pressure drop, the Saunders® P345 will simplify plant infrastructure and provide a lower total cost of ownership compared to existing technologies. This performance is achieved within a highly compact dimensional envelope and at a 30%, lighter weight compared to typical stainless-steel variants, reducing dead-leg between associated valves. The use of polyamide housing and a stainless-steel bonnet provides a robust interface ensuring product reliability that can endure typical industry down regimes. Capable of withstanding temperatures between -10° and 100°C, the Saunders® P345 is available in sizes DN8 (0.25″) to DN100 (4″) in spring-to-close, spring-to-open and double acting modes of operation.
In addition to the Saunders® P354, Crane will showcase ER Resilience Diaphragm; EX Endurance Diaphragm; Saunders® S360 Actuator and Saunders-VUE Smart Sensors solutions.
