The new butterfly valve series from GEA Tuchenhagen US LLC features a compact maintenance-free actuator with reversible operation, an integrated proximity switch-holding device, a hygienic stem guidance design and a T-shape gasket with optimum resistance against vacuum and reduced switching torque. The new range, called T-smart, is available with Tri-Clamp connections or as a 3-piece flanged design, allowing the valve to be welded into the pipeline with subsequent easy removal to change the wafer. T-smart butterfly valves are manufactured in 1-in. OD through 4-in. OD sizes.
