The VARITOP® tank safety system is a modular system for individual applications. It is used for tank cleaning, for protection against impermissible overpressure and underpressure, as well as for the aeration and degassing of tanks.

GEA offers different types of safety valves: Hygienic vacuum valves protect pipelines as well as tanks in processing plants from inevitable vacuums (such as after sterilization). Our safety valves reliably protect process plants from overpressure.

Control valves serve as actuators in control loops. In this context, the respective control valve functions as a throttling device that sets the desired flow rate by changing the pressure drop in a pipeline.

The modular design of the VARIVENT® system offers the possibility to individually adapt control valves to specific process requirements.
