How does a Mixproof valve work?

How does a Mixproof valve work?

A mixproof valve has two seats within the valve versus the traditional single seat. When the valve is open, the leakage chamber is closed. The product then flows from one line to the other. The radial seal design of the valve ensures that virtually no product spillage occurs during valve operation.

What is a PMO valve?

24 / 7 PMO Valve® is a registered trade mark of GEA. It describes double-seat valves that have been authorised for use in PMO-regulated systems, where seat lifting occurs to clean the leakage chamber while the other pipeline is carrying product.

What is a mix proof valve?

The mixproof valve is designed to allow two products to flow through the valve at one time without risking cross-contamination. The valve itself has two independently controlled valve stems giving them this capability, while giving the operator more control of the process.

What is a hygienic valve?

Hygienic valves are common in food, beverage, and dairy manufacturing. They are found in processes where cleanability (CIP or COP) is extremely important. Aseptic valves, are most often found in industries that require high levels of purity.

What is a single seat valve?

Sanitary single seated valves are a type of globe valves used to shut off or change the direction of fluid flow in high-pressure applications. They are preferred because of their simple design: a movable disc-type element with unique designed seat is maneuvered to seal the port on well treated body.

What is valve Matrix?

Compared to traditional flow plates, a valve matrix is designed to allow simultaneous circulation of liquids — including clean-in-place media — on several levels with the exact number of lines and rows to match the specific requirements of your process.

What is full name of Fdv valve?

Also called the flow diversion valve (FDV), it is located at the downstream end of the upward sloping holding tube. It is essentially a 3-way valve, which, at temperatures greater than 72° C,opens to forward flow.

What is a change over valve?

Changeover valves are switchover valves, switching flow from one pipeline to another. They are sometimes referred to as “selector” valves. Changeover valves are well suited to applications where mandatory pressure relief devices (rupture discs and relief valves) are installed as dual devices.

How does the Alfa Laval mixproof valve work?

The Alfa Laval Unique mixproof valve is a normally closed (NC) valve that is controlled from a remote location by means of compressed air. To separate the two liquids, the valve has two independent plug seals. The space between the two seals forms an atmospheric leakage chamber.

What do you need to know about Alfa Laval?

The Alfa Laval Basic mixproof valve is a lower cost solution that still provides the safety, separation, and leakage detection needed in a mixproof valve design. It is a normally closed (NC) valve that is controlled from a remote location by means of compressed air.

How are Alfa Laval pumps used in hygienic applications?

Working with hygienic applications is a question of care, attention to detail and dedication to outstanding performance. Alfa Laval has a proven track record in delivering innovative solutions for hygienic applications based on our core technologies of separation, heat transfer and fluid handling.

What kind of valve does Alfa Laval SMP-BCA use?

Alfa Laval SMP-BCA As SMP-BC, but fitted with a PTFE/ rubber diaphragm, designed for use under aseptic conditions, and steriliza- tion involving high temperatures. Alfa Laval SMP-BC Keeps liquids separate by using two seals on the same plug, with a leakage chamber in between.
