Where To Buy
Features

High value, Low life cycle costs:

  • “All-In” standard features such as seat lift actuator and cross-port housing provide exceptional value
  • Reduced inventory costs with same seal kit used on multiple size ranges: DN40-DN65 (1.5”-3.0”) and DN80-DN100 (4.0”)
  • Low air consumption and air supply requirements
  • Leak drain with clamp connection for CIP fluid collection
  • Long housing ports ease manifold building
  • Integrated shaft seal flush reduces need for external piping


Reliable performance:

  • Design based on the proven D4SL model
  • Tank side holding pressure greater than 5 bar (73 PSI)
  • Long stroke for gentle product handling (ex: particulates) and low flow resistance
  • Balanced design helps to prevent hydraulic blocking and enables flexible flow direction without slamming
  • Heavy-duty bolted flange connection between tank/housing/insert provides secure, controlled assembly/disassembly of valve insert
  • No compressed air needed for removal and servicing
  • Range of control units and bus communication for automated operation


Cleanability:

  • Designed to the latest global hygienic standards
  • Cavity spray cleaning as standard
  • Radial seal design provides minimal switching leakage
  • Extensive cleaning of product contact seals

 

Theory of Operation

How do tank outlet valves work ?


Double seat mix proof valves are used to safely process two different fluids efficiently (typically product and CIP) through the valve simultaneously. The DT4 mix proof design has two independently operating seats that separate the tank and pipeline when the valve is in the fail-safe closed position. The atmospheric vent cavity between the seats creates a path to exit through the leakage chamber should the seals fail, as well as a drain for CIP solution during seat cleaning. External CIP spray flush connections are included to provide enhanced cleaning of the leakage vent cavity as well as the lower shaft, while the valve is closed or open during production.
