Compliance with the strict hygiene standards of the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries is a constant challenge for designers of production infrastructures. Every single part counts. The type 6051 aseptic angle valve from Schubert & Salzer meets those standards and is not only impressive in terms of hygiene, but also in its performance and robustness.
The biggest enemies of the producers of food, beverages and pharmaceuticals are dirt particles and bacteria. Any machine part that does not meet the strictest hygiene requirements is a potential source of contamination. Valve technology from Bachofen’s technology partner Schubert & Salzer eliminates those risks for mechanical engineers.
The components developed by Schubert & Salzer especially for hygiene-critical applications include the type 6051 aseptic angle valve with EHEDG certification and integrated type 8049 positioner. The valve can be used in CIP and SIP systems, requires little space and is resistant to aggressive cleaning processes.
The housing of the type 6051 aseptic angle valve – and also the positioner, depending on the requirements – are made of high-quality, smooth stainless steel. Parts in contact with the fluid are FDA-compliant and meet USP class VI as well as (EC) 1935/2004 and (EU) 10/2011. The inner surfaces can be supplied polished or electropolished according to the customer’s request or the required Ra value. The robust EPDM membrane is coated with a PTFE film. It can withstand extreme temperature fluctuations and is highly resistant to chemicals.
The type 6051 aseptic angle valve type can be used almost anywhere in production systems for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. It comes in nominal diameters from DN 15 to DN 50 and offers a variety of connection options. With accessories such as limit switches, position feedback, solenoid valves and other parts, the valve can be configured according to the specific requirements of the individual application.
With their technical know-how and expert advice, Bachofen’s valve technology specialists help mechanical engineers find the right solutions. Their service also includes designing the valves and being available any time help is needed.
