Food safety-compliant globe valves

GEMÜ offers several globe valves suitable for use in plants of the food and beverage industries, including the GEMÜ 505/555 pure steam valve

(PresseBox) (Ingelfingen-Criesbach, ) All of the wetted components are traceable and comply with SML (Specific Migration Limit) and QM values (maximum permissible residual quantity in material), which ensures the valve's compliance with EU Framework Regulation 1935/2004 and makes it suitable for use in food-related applications.

Originally developed for a well-known customer from the pharmaceutical industry, the valve design was modified/upgraded for pure steam applications in the food industry in the second half of 2012.

The pneumatic (GEMÜ 555) and hand-operated (GEMÜ 505) angle seat globe valves are based on the GMP directives (German guidelines on good manufacturing practice) and meet the highest quality standards: all wetted parts are made of high-quality stainless steel and the seal materials satisfy the requirements of the FDA and the EU Framework Regulation.

All valves are manufactured in specific batches and combined in one production run in order to ensure complete traceability of all wetted components such as valve bodies, retaining nuts, seats, bellows and other parts. Alongside the certificate of compliance with the order 2.1, test report 2.2 and inspection certificates 3.1 and 3.2 as per DIN EN 10204, a declaration of conformity with Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 can thus also be issued for the GEMÜ 505/555.

Other globe valves which can also be manufactured in accordance with EU Framework Regulation 1935/2004 include the GEMÜ 507, 514, 537, 550 and 554 angle seat globe valves.
