Choose Your Type Of Sanitary Valve
With the rapid development of our nation, demand for construction items is also increasing tremendously like sanitary pumps, sanitary fittings, and sanitary valves, etc. With the advancement of technology, creative minds are innovating different products with different features to meet the requirement of people. Some manufacturers are offering their products with some extra and unbeatable features to grasp the market share like corrosion resistance valves, stainless steel valves, CIP and SIP features for hygiene purposes, etc.
It is essential to have a little information about all these varieties to get a thorough understanding of sanitary valves used in various applications. Categorization and classification are also possible on the basis of material used to construct these valves. There a different variety of materials that are used for the purpose like bronze, forged steel, cast iron, stainless steel or brass. Further, one more way of classification depends upon the type of valve. Ball valve, gate valve, swing check valve, butterfly valve, air relief valve, and globe valves are some of the examples. Thus, there is a wide range of variety of sanitary valves available for us to choose based on our different kinds of needs.
As the name suggests itself, Gate valves act as a gate. These are used to let the water stop and flow when needed. These valves are also called sluice valves.
Actuated butterfly valves are named so as for their outer structural pattern. By rotating from 0 to 90 degree one can stop or start the flow of fluid. There are also pressure valves that are driven by pressure. We also find divert valves which are used to divert the flow of liquid from one section of pipe to different section.
These valves are used in the food and beverage industry, dairy or pharmaceutical sectors, that requires critical selection as these industries have hygiene and sterile at its top priority. Stainless steel aseptic sampling valves are best suited for hygienic industries.
EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) is a varox-cured material that is commonly used in pharmaceutical and biotech applications. This material is non-cytotoxic and sulfur-free. These materials are used for making the PTFE seal thicker to protect the EPDM rubber from fine chemical corrosion. This double seal will counteract the material’s drawbacks. It will also protect the valve and pipeline from leakage, as a result of which the cost of maintenance will cut down, and operational life will enhance.
