Valves New Filling Valve Platform with Innovative PD Design
Gemü is laying the cornerstone for the latest generation of filling valves – the F40 and F60 valves.
Gemü has recently introduced a new filling valve platform. The use of the PD design has made it possible to securely isolate the moving parts of the actuator hermetically from the product area while simultaneously achieving a high number of switching cycles, explains the firm. This means that what has become known as the lift effect, in which the remains of the product are transported through the inserted spindle into areas in the actuator which are not to be cleaned, is excluded.
In addition to the improved ease of cleaning of the media-wetted area, the valve stands out thanks to its extremely compact design and the ability to quickly and easily replace worn parts, claims the company. Besides the conventional pneumatic variants, a motorized version with an innovative generation of drives is also available.
Both the Gemü F40 and F60 valves have a number of areas of application in virtually all filling processes in the hygienic and aseptic sector. Due to the one-piece PTFE seal that is used, the two valve types are also suitable for media containing oil or fat. Both the valves will be presented at the Achema trade fair.
