Valves cut out cross-contamination risk

Paul Boughton

Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof Valves provide flexibility in hygienic flow processing by making it possible to handle two different fluids at the same time, with no risk of cross-contamination.

Using two independent plugs and seals means a single mixproof valve can often replace two or more valves of other types.

Alfa Laval supplies several different designs of mixproof valves, all with leakage detection, that help boost reliability and safety levels. They enable you to design versatile set-ups that are both cost-effective and easy to maintain, as well as providing you with important new processing opportunities.

As part of the range, there is the Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof Large Particle Valve with features suitable for handling fluids with high viscosity or large particles such as lotions, soups and yoghurts. This valve is specially designed with large openings handling particles up to 45 mm in diameter to minimise pressure loss and securing product integrity by eliminating the risk of product damage or blockage.
