Manufacturers of meals and other hygienically processed products face the problem of maintaining reproducible processes in order that their merchandise have the looks, taste, and consistency that buyers expect.
GEA has designed the VARIVENT MX with elements that keep merchandise from mixing with the cleansing liquid, even beneath distinctive masses. The cavity chamber is fitted with a vacuum self-drainage system and balancers on each valve discs. For maximum physical safety, GEA makes use of the Venturi effect which is created by the particular shape of the circulate channels, inflicting a vacuum on the opposite seal throughout lifting, stopping pressure increases. As a end result, no cleaning liquid can enter the alternative pipe carrying the product while a valve seat is being lifted or cleaned, even if a seal is defective.
When new methods are set up and adjusted in a quick while, there is a larger danger of overpressure throughout operation. The valve discs should keep in place when water hammer happens, and the valve should remain closed. For this purpose, GEA has outfitted the valve discs in both pipelines with balancers – pressure compensators. This makes the closed valve resistant to water hammer as a lot as 50 bar within the upper and lower pipelines. The new MX valve sort additionally has an built-in balancer cleansing gadget. It ensures that the balancer is totally flushed from the skin throughout seat lifting concurrently cleaning-in-place is going down. All surfaces in contact with the product could be cleaned without any further elements protecting the product from contamination.
