A ball valve uses a pivoting, perforated, and a hollow ball to control the flow. It is closed when the ball is pivoted 90 degrees and open when it’s in line with the flow.
Sanitary Valves Types:
Commonly used for regulating the flow rates of liquid or gas, Butterfly Valves are often used in beverage, biotech, food, pharmaceutical, and dairy industries.
With two openings in the body (one for fluid to exit and one for it to enter), Check valves allow gas or liquid to flow through it in one direction only.
Diaphragm valves fall into one of two main categories. The first seals over a seat (sometimes called a “straight-way” or “full bore valve”), and the second seals over a weir (also called a “saddle”). Diaphragms can be automated or manual.
Simple and usually economical, plug valves have conically tapered or cylindrical plugs which rotate to control the flow. Fluid will flow through the plug in its hollow passageways when open.
A sampling valve is used to collect fluid for testing purposes, including chemical analysis, physical measurements, and microbiological examination. It allows one to extract a representative sample of solids, gases, liquids or slurries to analyze for regulatory assessment, identification and quality control.
