Sanitary valves are valve fittings that are designed to be sterile and possess unique hygienic and health properties. It is imperative that this crucial equipment is fabricated using materials that are free from contaminants, and as such, the primary body is typically constructed using the most advanced form of stainless steel, namely 316L. Sanitary valve fittings are typically procured in bulk for use in sterile processing systems, where they are utilized to manage and regulate the flow of fluid products that are intended for consumption.
The implementation of clean or sterile processing necessitates the utilization of a sanitary valve. Various industries, including but not limited to food, dairy, pharmaceutical, medical, and chemical, mandate the use of sanitary valves. Each industrial application entails distinct valve requirements, thereby necessitating a diverse array of valve types. When selecting a sanitary valve for your processing system, it is imperative to take into account significant specifications such as the working pressure, diameter, and operating temperature of the device.
Our company adheres to rigorous quality control procedures and standards to ensure the production of Sanitary Valves with excellent surface and near dimensional tolerances. As a market leader in the global supply of Sanitary Valves, we hold ASME Quality and ISO 9001:2015 Certifications. Our extensive range of solutions includes carbon steel, alloy steel, and stainless steel Sanitary Valves. In addition to our high-quality stainless steel Sanitary Valves, we are authorized dealers of ISMT and Jindal for the supply of carbon steel and alloy steel Sanitary Valves.
There are various types of stainless steel sanitary valves available, which can be categorized into three groups based on their motion.
Sanitary ball valves are so named due to their utilization of a ball with a centrally drilled hole that is swivel mounted to the valve body. When the hole in the ball is oriented in the same direction as the pipe, the valve operates at full flow. However, the flow rate can be restricted or completely cut off by rotating the hole in the ball away from the pipe's direction, until it is oriented 90 degrees perpendicular to the pipe's direction.
While various manufacturers produce different variations of ball valves, most share similar operational features. As a potential customer, it is advisable to explore the market for different alternatives and become familiar with all available options. It is also important to compare the benefits of any product to the specific needs of your processing system. Valve manufacturers are increasingly focused on enhancing the comfort and convenience of end-users, and strive to interpret the needs and preferences of their potential customers to improve product quality.
Sanitary butterfly valve designs incorporate a single eccentric structure, with a soft seal that differs from the middle section. The butterfly valve disc is installed in the pipe diameter direction, and rotates around the axis within the cylindrical channel of the valve body, with a rotation angle ranging from 0° to approximately 90°. This enables the valve to move from fully closed to fully open, and vice versa.
The Sanitary butterfly valve is constructed with high-precision CNC lathe processing, and boasts a compact, lightweight design with only a few components. Its operation is simple and convenient, with the disc requiring only a 90° rotation to open and close quickly, providing dependable fluid control characteristics. A health-grade pneumatic butterfly valve should maintain a fully open position, with the disc thickness facilitating medium flow through the valve body, and ensuring good flow control characteristics despite the small valve size.
The Sanitary butterfly valve features two types of seals - a ballistic seal and a metal seal.
The Mechanical Sealing Requirements for a sanitary control valve are outlined as follows:
The stainless steel sanitary globe valves feature a spherical body that is bifurcated by an internal baffle. The body is equipped with a seat opening that accommodates a movable plug, commonly known as a disc, which enables the valves to be closed or shut. The plug is connected to a stem that is operated by a handwheel in manual valves through a screwing mechanism. In automated sanitary globe control valves, smooth stems are preferred over threaded ones. An actuator assembly can be employed to facilitate the opening or closing of the valves.
