Features & benefits Sturdy ball shaped housing designed for optimum cleanability. The extra wall thickness of the valve housing minimizes stresses in the seat area. At the same time the ball shaped housing effectively prevents sump or dome, thus optimizing valve cleanability and reducing CIP-time. A comprehensive range of valve housings are available to cover any requests. Controlled compression of seat seal The metallic stop ensures defi ned compression of seat area and minimizes stress and load on seat seals, which in the long run minimizes downtime. Furthermore, this arrangement ensures smooth product transition in this area. Wear resistant elastomer/PTFE shaft seal and shaft bearing arrangement increases seal lifetime and consequently minimizes maintenance costs and general downtime.
