Hygienic valves have been manufactured by GEA for over 80 years. They are the core component in matrix-piped process plants and contribute significantly to the highest product quality. With our range of valves we provide the market with solutions for highly complex tasks as well as for basic functions. Our valves are economically designed for the application they are intended for.
With our T-smart butterfly valves we now have improved the product features significantly, unique in this combination. These butterfly valves have a new sealing design and do meet the world wide high hygienic demands for components in process plants.
The T.VIS® control top is an optimal system for controlling and monitoring GEA valves of the series VARIVENT®, ECOVENT® & T-smart.
Industry regulations are continually updated to stricter and higher standards. While equipment and components are required to meet these high standards, the expectation from industry buyers is to have state-of-the-art quality technology with minimal costs – operation, maintenance and service. The modular design of the VARIVENT® valve system allows individual customization for specific tasks. These adjustments create better efficiency for system operators.
Mixproof Divert Valves
VARIVENT® mixproof divert valves are used for distributing liquid in pipelines, i.e. for distributing a liquid from one pipeline into two others, in which case one of the two pipelines must be shut off from the outlet line with a mixproof function.
Mixproof Shut-off Valves
VARIVENT® double-seat valves are used for mixproof shut-off of incompatible products at the pipe junctions. The structure of the VARIVENT® modular system means that many optional versions are available for adapting the valve optimally to the process. With T-smart we offer a valve concept with basic functions.
Mixproof Shut-off Valves with Seat Lifting
VARIVENT® double-seat valves are used for mixproof shut-off of incompatible products at the pipe junctions. The 24 / 7 PMO Valve® describes double-seat valves that have been authorised for use in PMO-regulated systems.
GEA offers different types of safety valves: Hygienic vacuum valves are used to secure lines in processing plants against impermissibly occurring vacuums (e.g. after sterilization). Our safety relief valves reliably protect process plants from overpressure.
GEA offers three different series of single-seat shut-off valves. VARIVENT® and ECOVENT® single-seat valves are used for simple shut-off in hygienic applications. To avoid water hammers, individual variants in the VARIVENT® modular system are configured for different flow directions. With T-smart we offer a valve concept with basic functions.
Tank Bottom Valves
VARIVENT® tank bottom valves are used for shutting off pipelines at tanks or containers. Various housing connections can be welded directly into the tank bottom, flush mounted into the tank bottom wall. With T-smart we offer a valve concept with basic functions.
