Flowserve supplies units to Lundbeck

Flowserve Flow Control has provided 1500 Worcester valves and Gestra check valves to pharmaceutical manufacturer Lundbeck. Flowserve’s distributor, BSS, supplied the units to a new Lundbeck plant based in Seal Sands, Middlesbrough, UK. The Flowserve valves are incorporated into a new facility that produces bulk API, Cipralex, an anti-depressant intermediate. Worcester and Gestra valves were specified by Lundbeck to handle water, steam, thermal fluids, glycols and similar media, and include certain high-specification valves such as the P221 for use on the thermal fluids. Norbro actuators, which are a Lundbeck standard, are used throughout the plant. The facility, which incorporates the largest SMB chromatography unit in the world, forms part of a new self-sufficient plant built on the site next to the existing installation.
