The easy solution for CIP feeds:

GEA FLOWVENT Double-seal valves can be applied as efficient alternatives for secure separation of incompatible products within CIP systems or gas blocks.

Function of the valve

The Double-seal valve separates media in two pipelines. The two seals are both located in one valve disc. Hence, they cannot be moved apart separately as in double-seat valves. Therefore, this valve type is recommend for CIP systems and gas blocks.

Application

Double-seal valves are predominantly used in areas where hygienic safety is not critical, e.g. CIP systems and gas blocks (brewery).
