GEA offers different types of safety valves: Hygienic vacuum valves are used to secure lines in processing plants against impermissibly occurring vacuums (e.g. after sterilization). Our safety relief valves reliably protect process plants from overpressure.
Control valves serve as actuators in control loops. In this process, the particular control valve works as a throttle device that sets the desired flow rate by changing the pressure loss in a pipeline. The VARIVENT® system’s modular design makes it possible to individually adjust control valves to specific process requirements.
