USDA rotary valves

April 5, 2012

GEA Nu-Con rotary valves are specifically designed to comply with USDA requirements and to meet the requirements of the dairy industry. Tools-free demounting affords the user a convenient method to remove the rotor from the valve body and features precise rotor alignment to enable easy re-assembly after cleaning or inspection. An optional easy-slide system can be supplied which helps to eliminate rotor droop and allows unaided operation for maintenance personnel. An optional second generation Rotor Detection System (RDS Gen2) now features full operation during wet (CIP) cleaning. With the RDS Gen2 system, users can conveniently configure and monitor up to 25 valves via their site SCADA system.fex0412dry4_inbody.jpg
