Stainless-steel tank covers for hygienic processes

| By Chemical Engineering

LKD and LKDC tank covers securely fit the openings of high-, low- or non-pressure tanks, both above and below the liquid level. Two different models are offered for hygienic processes. The circular LKDC stainless-steel tank cover (photo) is used on top of tanks or containers. It is supplied with a replaceable, self-sealing double-lip seal to prevent fluids from spraying out, for example, during clean-in-place (CIP) and similar processes. The oval-shaped LKD stainless-steel tank cover is used on tanks or containers in various hygienic industries. For personnel entry, the cover can either be removed at the double hinge or swung out of the tank. The seal is not affected by positive or negative pressure in the tank. The LKD and LKDC inspection and personnel-entry ports are approved in compliance with the American 3-A Sanitary Standard and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The tank covers are available in 304 or 316L stainless steel with several options for seal materials and surface finishes. — Alfa Laval, Lund, Sweden
