Buck® Valve and docking system
Buck® Valve and docking system

Columbia, MD-As a result of its parent company GEA-AG's acquisition of the Pharmaceutical Division of GEI International plc, Niro Inc. now offers Buck® high-containment systems, including the patented Buck® Valve and docking system, a standard in the pharmaceutical industry.

Buck® split-valve technology allows containers to connect with (and disconnect from) intermediate bulk containers and various process equipment while maintaining a dust-tight seal. The design eliminates contamination of the product or leakage of material that might endanger operators. Buck® valves may be built into new equipment or retrofitted to existing equipment.

Advantages of the Buck® docking system are:

  • Complete containment prevents contamination or leakage
  • Unique discharge system eliminates bridging in container
  • Vacuum rated
  • Manual or fully automatic control
  • Variety of options, from valves to complete turnkey processing systems

Buck® systems are custom manufactured to meet purchaser requirements. Buck® engineering teams oversee the entire project, from planning through validation. Additional Buck® equipment includes the Buck® discharge system, Buck® dosing system, containers and seed containers, and clean-in-place washing equipment.
