You can find sanitary butterfly valves in many sizes and brands. They can have different actuation methods. Some of them are operated manually by using handles, while others are remotely controlled automatically.
Such sanitary valves can be useful for number of applications starting from drainage ditches up to any laboratory production processes. Valve seats are made by using materials from EPDM, Silicone and Viton.
The product surfaces are made either from T304 or T316 stainless steel and also other hygienic material.
BV6 SANITARY BUTTERFLY VALVES
These valves are suitable for different applications in piping systems of stainless-steel material. There are 3 variants of BV6 actuators – normally closed, normally open and activated by air. Actuator works by changing the piston’s axial movement into a 90ᵒ rotation of valve shaft.
As the valve disc near the body of valve contacts butterfly valve seal, which increases actuator torque. The valve will close. By choosing different hand grips e.g. open, closed, central and any other position, the valve is mechanically locked in changed positions. All these positions will regulate flow rate at the desired level.
SPLIT SANITARY BUTTERFLY VALVES
Such valves are designed for eliminating any atmospheric contamination during the powders transfer. All these valves can provide high containment during the sampling, and also loading/unloading process.
These valves consisting of both active and passive part. While the active part is a driving part. The passive part is half driven. Both the halves can fit together along the particular rotation axis. The discs can be sealed on outside by using metal seal.
Such valves offer protection for the operator as well as the product and also the environment. Also, they can eliminate any cross-contamination possibility. They can offer sustained levels of confinement over long period. They will also allow fast docking and undocking.
DIXON STEEL SANITARY BUTTERFLY VALVES
Such valves are utilized as throttling valves meant for flow control and also as stop valves having on/off service. Though they are designed for robust use and they are quite reliable. They will be available in models which are operated either pneumatically or electrically. In their assembly no silicone lubricants will be used.
Such valves can be available in various sizes. The grooved clamp housing will be directly connected to its clamping fittings. You can easily disassemble them by using wing nuts or a hex key.
Such valves can be ideal if you want to do flow control to save your money. This clamping butterfly can also be suitable for only limited spaces.
