Save up to 95% in CIP liquid with this drain valve cleaner

By Gerald Ondrey |

Drain valves comprise up to 20% of all valves in a typical processing plant. But cleaning them is costly, difficult and time-consuming due to long cleaning cycles and the risk of pressure shocks. The new ThinkTop pulse seat clean (photo) addresses all these issues, quickly and effectively cleaning drain valves while delivering savings of up to 95% in cleaning-in-place (CIP) liquid, says the company. Short bursts, or pulses, drive the valve cleaning process, activating the valve when shear forces peak. Each position-based pulse takes less than a second, preventing pressure shocks in the system. The pulse creates high turbulent flow as the liquid passes through the narrow gap between the valve house and valve seat, effectively removing all residuals for spotless drain valves. Intended for use with single-seat valves or butterfly valves used as drain valves, pulse seat clean is a standard feature of ThinkTop V50 and V70 sensing and control units with one solenoid valve. — Alfa Laval AB, Lund, Sweden
