INOXPA Tank Bottom Seat Valve NLF

Application

The NLF valve is a pneumatically actuated single seat valve designed for assembly at the bottom of the tanks in the dairy, food-processing industries, beverage production, pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industries.

Operating principle

The seat valves are actuated by a single- or double-acting actuator. The shaft is actuated by the supplied compressed air and opens or closes the valve. Possible configuration of the valve: the valve seat opens into the valve to avoid accidental openings in case of overpressure in the line and to avoid possible contact with the product recovery scrapers.

Design and features

  • Total drainage prevents the stagnation of the product.
  • Normally closed valve (closed by spring) – standard version.
  • Normally open valve (opened by spring) by a simple turn of the pneumatic actuator.
  • The valve seat opens into the tank to avoid accidental openings in case of excessive pressure in the tank.
  • 360º adjustable body, even after welding the flange to the tank.
  • Open lantern for visual inspection of the shaft sealing.
  • Easy disassembly by loosening the clamp.
  • Connections: weld (mm or inches).
