Reducing the total cost of ownership is paramount for manufacturers of dairy, food and beverage products. Factors like product safety, stable process flow and easy maintenance are crucial in achieving the ever increasing sustainability goals. The new Alfa Laval Aseptic Mixproof Valve is the perfect choice to achieve all these benefits and more.
At Alfa Laval, we are constantly striving to drive the total cost of ownership to the lowest possible level. Using the new Alfa Laval Aseptic Mixproof Valve instead of other brands can deliver a total cost saving by up to 45% for manufacturers using aseptic processing. Estimated savings are based on a comparison of capital expenses and maintenance costs of an aseptic 2½” valve over a five-year period if service is done on site. If maintenance is done offsite by a third-party provider, competing technologies become even more expensive.
Instead of steel bellows, this new aseptic double-seat valve uses the same well-proven diaphragm with a PTFE face and reinforced EPDM backing. This drastically reduces the total cost of ownership of our double-seat valve, yet still ensures the hermetic seal required for sterile processing.
The Alfa Laval Aseptic Mixproof Valve can be configured to meet virtually any requirement. Choose a standard valve body and a tangential valve body or use two standard valve body types. Built on the same Alfa Laval Unique SSV platform, this aseptic double-seat valve is easy to mount either in a horizontal or vertical position.
The optimized design of the Alfa Laval Aseptic Mixproof Valve makes cleaning and sterilization easier, as proven by CFD flow simulations. This ensures more production uptime and greater product safety through full protection against the intrusion of harmful microorganisms, even during unwanted pressure spikes. With a highly flushable design and no domes in the product and steam areas, the valve provides better cleaning capabilities than other double-seat aseptic mixproof valves.
Maintenance is made easy for those familiar with the Alfa Laval Unique SSV Aseptic Valve. The new aseptic valve follows the same maintenance routines as most wear parts are interchangeable. This will also help you streamlining replacement parts inventory.
The Alfa Laval Aseptic Mixproof Valve comes in three seat-lift versions, five steam valve types and a range of options for steam temperature monitoring. They all comply with the strict requirements of 3-A Sanitary Standards.
