GEA FLOWVENT Shut-off valves are used for easy shut-off solutions in hygienic applications.

Function

For simple shut-off 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, shut-off valves are not suitable for separating incompatible media.

Application

Shut-off valves are ideal for use e.g. as drain valves or to shut off a bypass line. Often these valve types are also used as dosing valves.
