SPX Flow has announced the launch of a new range of mix-proof hygienic valves. This D4 Series is the result of continued development from both APV and Waukesha Cherry-Burrell process technologies. Used for the reliable separation of dissimilar products, the D4 Series helps fulfil today’s customer demands for production flexibility, maximised productivity, rapid return on investment, and reduced product and personnel risk across the food and beverage, dairy, personal care and brewing process industries.
All D4 valves are fully balanced for dependable operation against pressure spikes and flow in any direction. The assurance of genuine automated processing is enhanced with the option of a unique, state-of-the-art control unit with integrated seat lift detection and no external sensors. Maintenance is optimised as no compressed air or lifting tools are required for removal and service. The downward-opening valves, for example, facilitate easy handling, and based on the firm's testing of similar valves on the market, weigh on average 40% less. Use of the D4 Series further optimises inventory investment as the same seal kit is used across multiple valve sizes.
The D4 Series is a truly international valve, with models being produced in the United States and Europe. By manufacturing in multiple locations equipped with advanced machinery and highly skilled operational teams, the D4 series is positioned to provide a high quality solution with exceptional, delivery times.
The newest manufacturing campus located in Bydgoszcz, Poland has proven its capability to consistently meet or exceed customer expectations. The advanced engineering proficiency at the plant further means the company can provide the design and manufacture of complete valve manifolds to the meet specific customer needs.
