Aseptomag® valve line Shut-off Valves Aseptomag® AMV

Aseptomag® single-seat shut-off valves are used for the controlled opening and closing of pipelines in UltraClean and Aseptic processing plants. Thanks to the compact design, the type AMV is ideal for fractional size applications such as i.e. pilot plants.

A welded stainless steel bellows is used to hermetically seal the product area from outside contamination. This valve type is based on the Aseptomag® sampling valve and can therefore benefit from the modular structure and various options.

Main Components

Housing
Housings for mini valves are available with two or three port connections. The valves are produced with standard butt-weld connections by default. Various aseptic pipe connections are available upon request.
 
Internal Assembly
The internal assembly is available with either a stainless steel or PTFE bellow. In the case of the PTFE bellow, the valve seat seal is fully integrated into the bellow part whereas the stainless steel bellow contains a shrunk PTFE seal by default. In addition to this sealing material, valve seat seals made of EPDM are also available.
 
Actuator
Mini valves are equipped with a spring-closing / air opening (NC) pneumatic actuator by default. Other options are available upon request.
 
Clamp
Due to its solid construction, the clamp enables a pressure stable and safe connection of the main components. The special design with two segments allows a service-friendly handling of the component, even under tight space conditions.
 
Feedback units
Aseptic mini valves can be equipped with open feedback units M8 or, by using a special adaptor, with a T.VIS® V-1 feedback system.

Aseptomag® Valve Technology

Aseptomag® aseptic valves are designed to meet the highest demands for aseptic processes in the dairy, food and beverage industry.

Aseptic bellows valves distinguish themselves with the uncompromisingly hermetic seal of the valve stem, thereby minimizing contamination risks and maximizing detection possibilities. The Aseptomag® valve line is the equivalent for aseptic processes to the hygienic VARIVENT® valve line and provides everything from shut-off and bottom-seat to mixproof and sampling valves. The valves meet the highest hygienic standards required, such as EHEDG and 3-A standards. Thanks to the modular structure, the Aseptomag® valve line also allows tailor-made valve solutions for specific process requirements (higher closing pressures, special materials, special design, etc). Aseptomag® valves can be equipped with T.VIS® control tops and can therewith seamlessly be integrated into an automated process plant.

Aseptic Applications

For aseptic processes, the following areas have to be considered: Product sterilization, conveying and maintaining sterility, and filling under sterile conditions. Aseptic processes signify high-quality products and/or long shelf-life, produced for specific consumer groups. Besides classic UHT milk products, medical nutrition, baby food, aseptically produced beverages and applications within biotech belong to this hygienic class.
