The Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof UltraPure provides a higher degree of plant flexibility resulting in optimized plant efficiency without compromising product safety.
Exceptional high-purity design
This advanced double block-and-bleed valve provides long-lasting, spillage-free operation for continuous processes in the pharmaceutical, biotech, personal care and other hygienic industries. This minimizes the risk of product contamination and ensures maximum uptime as well as safe and hygienic operation.
Easy to clean and maintain
Maintenance and cleaning is quick and easy due to a top-loaded design, no adjustable components, maintenance-friendly actuator and built-in leakage detection on all seals. Like all Unique mixproof valves, the Alfa Laval Unique Mixproof UltraPure meets stringent hygienic standards.
Easy to configure and upgrade
Optimize your hygienic process by customizing the Unique Mixproof UltraPure to suit your needs. Its modular design also makes it easy to upgrade the double seat valve whenever your process needs change while ensuring efficient, hygienic and continuous production.
Full and documented traceability
Unique Mixproof UltraPure valves come with Alfa Laval Q-doc, a comprehensive documentation package for UltraPure equipment. It ensures full traceability of all product contact parts. Based on Good Documentation Practice (GDP), Q-doc documents every aspect from raw material to delivered equipment.
How it works
The unique mixproof valve concept is based on a series of base components, including valve body, valve plug, actuator and cleaning options and accessories that support a wide range of applications. Using these components, you can build a Unique mixproof valve to match your exact process requirements.
To facilitate maintenance, the Unique mixproof valve also features leakage detection holes that provide advance notification of wear or damage to static o-rings. Operators can visually inspect the valve at any time without having to disassemble it.
The Alfa Laval Unique mixproof valve is a normally closed (NC) valve that is controlled from a remote location by means of compressed air.
To separate the two liquids, the valve has two independent plug seals. The space between the two seals forms an atmospheric leakage chamber. In the rare case of accidental product leakage, the product flows into the leakage chamber and is discharged through the leakage outlet.
When the valve is open, the leakage chamber is closed. The product can then flow from one line to the other without spillage. The valve can easily be cleaned and protected against the effects of water hammer according to the specific requirements of the process and the configuration of the valve. (There is no product spillage during valve operation).
