Sanitary Diaphragm Valves

For superior performance on applications where protection against product contamination is paramount, the diaphragm valve is the answer. Known for its cleanability and reliability, the diaphragm valve has become the most specified and utilized valve in pharmaceutical processing. With virtually limitless options including custom body modifications, the diaphragm valve can be configured for virtually any sanitary or industrial requirement in manual or automated mode.

Sanitary Throttling Valves

Throttling valves with a wide selection of tapered stems are available matched to manual and automatic actuators to provide an outstanding degree of product and process control. Valves are available in 316LSS product contact including a vast array of finishes, end connections, and assembly configurations.

Sanitary Control Valves

Control is essential in any process flow application. But some applications require a higher degree of control. For instance, it may be necessary to measure and precisely control flow, temperature or pressure to ensure correct formulations, as well as the quality of the final product.

Valve positioners help achieve this control. They provide a stabilizing action in a valve's pneumatic circuit. Plus, they are engineered to maintain a predetermined valve position, regardless of other forces acting on the valve to change that position.

Valve positioners can be used in conjunction with control or throttling valves to achieve more exacting control of process parameters. That makes them very useful in applications calling for precision metering or blending.

Valve positioners are also helpful in situations subject to "over control," such as manual control applications or precision filling applications. Applications subject to wide pressure variations, or requiring more control when flow rates are low, can also benefit.

Designed for Easy Application

Positioners are precision instruments, and work on air signals from 3 psi (.211 kg/cm square) to 15 psi (1.055 kg/cm square). Calibrated range springs are supplied to match the valve stroke. The positioner is integrally mounted on top of the valve actuator. Both top- and bottom-loading positioners are available for normally open and normally closed valves.

Sanitary Divert and Mixing Valves

Sanitary Divert Valves are available in body configurations and can be manifolded to meet blending, mixing, CIP and virtually any process requirement. Flexible multi-port body design and high performance are the trademark of these valves including finish, connection, gasket and style options. In addition, control packages are available to enhance operation and provide unparalleled flexibility. Mix proof valve systems are also available engineered to meet most applications.

Ball Valves

Corrosion-and contaminant-resistant Ball Valves have earned an enviable reputation for rugged dependability. They provide leak-proof operation, and they're easy to install and service.

An optional encapsulated seat reduces the threat of product entrapment on critical process applications.

Full flow Ball Valves are ideal for processing applications where contaminant- or corrosion- resistant service is essential, and where maximum efficiency is a must, based on minimum turbulence and pressure drop.

Quick acting. Quarter-turn operation gives visual indication of flow with stop lug.

Electric or pneumatic actuators are available as well as most end connections, including tank outlet models.

Butterfly Valves

Butterfly Valves for economical process application can be selected from various body and seat materials with most end connections, finishes and activation. Rugged yet inexpensive these valves provide years of quality service. Compact butterfly valves are often used in non-critical applications with difficult dimensional concerns.

Sanitary Tank & Kettle Valves

Tank and kettle valves are engineered to accommodate a wide variety of vertical- and horizontal-mounted applications. Flush mounting helps eliminate dead space and minimize product retention. All valves are furnished with specialty mounts as well as all necessary hardware.

Valves can incorporate the switch and control options for automatic operation and compatibility with a variety of PLCs and other control devices.

A 45 or 90 sweep elbow outlet can provide reduced pressure drop typically encountered in high-viscosity products.

Sanitary Disk & Plug & Check Valves

The superb simplicity of disc meeting shaft at 45 means the seat is unpierced, for the purest of product integrity. The 180 rotation angles the disc cleanly through the product flow so the valve opens without resistance and stays in place. Half a turn of the valve handle provides quick, positive, leak-free shutoff. Actuators are also available.

To insure a wide variety of applications, diverse gasket materials are offered. The seat is available in teflon, buna, silicone, EPDM and viton. The standard "O" rings are buna or viton. Other elastomers, EPDM and silicone, are also available.

        Plug valves, because of their inherent design, are recommended only for low pressure applications 25 psi maximum, for use with non-hazardous products; and at temperatures no higher than 100 F. They are subject to leakage almost from the initial time of installation, because of normal operating, maintenance and cleaning (clean-out-of-place) procedures.

        Spring and ball check valves to match any system configuration are available with features and options compatible with other system components.

Sanitary Pressure Reducing & Relief Valves

Self contained pressure regulating and relief valves are available for liquid or gaseous applications with ends, finishes, materials, accessories/options to adapt to most systems.
