GEA FLOWVENT Divert valves are used for easy changeover solutions in hygienic applications.

Function

For simple switching functions, there is only one seal separating the pipelines from each other. In the event of a possible seal failure, liquid can leak into the second pipeline. For this reason, divert valves are not suitable for separating incompatible media.

Application

Divert valves are ideal for use in CIP supply and return lines. A typical application can also be found at the end of a valve block where the valves are installed as changeover valves between the process line and the drainage (e.g. during pushing out).
