New one-type-fits-all valve actuator

Published: 2-May-2017

The same actuator can be stocked as a spare part for all Alfa Laval Unique DV-ST UltraPure diaphragm valves, including for autoclaves

Alfa Laval is a global provider of specialised products and engineering solutions based on its key technologies of heat transfer, separation and fluid handling.

The company’s equipment, systems and services assist customers to heat, cool, separate and transport products in industries that produce food and beverages, chemicals and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, starch, sugar and ethanol.

The company's valve actuators are designed to integrate with all Alfa Laval sensing and control units for greater valve control.

Things to consider when choosing an actuator:

Number of types of actuators in one plant

Alfa Laval'a new Unique DV-ST UltraPure Actuator fits the complete range of the company's standard diaphragm valves.

Easy selection is crucial in hygienic industries; this actuator simplifies inventory management and makes the specification process fast, easy and secure.

Regardless of the process or application, the same actuator can be stocked as a spare part for all Alfa Laval Unique DV-ST UltraPure diaphragm valves – whether cast, forged, block or used for autoclave duties.

Reliable, trouble-free performance

The Unique DV-ST UltraPure Actuator withstands high temperatures required for sterilisation. It operates at working pressures up to 10 bar (6 bar TFM/EPDM).

Unlike many other actuators in the market, it is able to close the valve at the same working pressures at 0% pressure drop.

As long as the working pressure remains below 10 bar (6 bar TFM/EPDM), the actuator continues to deliver reliable performance. There is no need to change the actuator size or configuration, even if changes in the process line occur.

Efficient valve control with minimal human error

Alfa Laval sensing and control units can easily be integrated with the Unique DV-ST UltraPure Actuator, which enables customers to take advantage of Alfa Laval’s superior valve automation solutions.

Alfa Laval sensing and control units feature tight tolerance bands to provide maximum process safety and no-touch, set-and-forget sensors with simple set-up. This minimises human error and promotes safe and efficient production, ensuring more uptime.
