D-tec Stem Diaphragm Valve - for process and product safety in ultraclean applications

(PresseBox) (Kirchberg, ) Hygienic Design is well established in the food and beverage industry as well as the increasing requirements for products and processes. With the new D-tec stem diaphragm valves, GEA is setting new benchmarks in terms of flow rate, flexibility and compatibility.

The D-tec stem diaphragm valve is based on the modular VARIVENT® design system and thus scores with many advantages - for instance the high flexibility regarding valve configuration.

Due to the hermetically sealing D-tec diaphragm the D-tec stem diaphragm valve achieves a higher hygienic standard. This leads to a higher product quality and realizes longer shelf-life, often demanded especially in the food, beverage and dairy industry. From a technical point of view, the valve distinguishes itself with the elaborated connection of plastic and stainless steel as well as the reduced mechanical stress of the diaphragm during activation. Consequently the valve sets new standards in regards to life time at proven temperature resistance and cleanability. The integrity of the D-tec diaphragm can reliably be detected via a defined leakage path.
