Leakage valve boosts safety of ESL production

By Gerald Ondrey |

The Aseptomag LV leakage valve is a mixproof double-seat valve is designed for manufacturers of foods and beverages, as well as pharmaceutical products. Typical examples are products with an extended shelf life (ESL), such as soft drinks, fruit juices and milk-based and lactic-acid fermented products, along with plant-based alternatives sold chilled by retailers. The design features significantly mitigate the risk of contamination in this hygiene class. In addition, products become more durable — with less preservatives. Thanks to its dimensions, the compact double-seat valve for ESL processes takes up less space and is easier to install and maintain than aseptic alternatives. Technical features, such as the backstroke barrier, can be easily retrofitted without the need to replace the actuator or other existing equipment. The leakage valve is available in the upright LV version for typical valve matrices (photo, left) and in the LVBS version (right) for tank bottoms. The latter is typically used for tank installations and can also be connected to a pigging station for resource-saving product recovery systems. — GEA Group, Düsseldorf, Germany
