For the production and filling of beer, other beverages and dairy products angle seat, sliding gate, sanitary right angle and even ball sector valves from Schubert & Salzer are being applied all around the world.
Steam is used for heating, sterilization, autoclaves and pasteurization. Sliding gate valves are particularly suitable for this process. Users appreciate the strongly reduced energy consumption through the short stroke and compact actuators. The related reduced wear in actuators, packing and trim leads to longer service life. The compact valve design allows for easy installation, maintenance and repair of these valves. Wear parts, Cv values/characteristics or even the fail safe function can be changed within minutes.

Utility fluids like water, air, CO2 or nitrogen are typical sliding gate valve applications as well, especially at high or low temperatures, high pressures or where fast reaction times or a high valve rangeability or accuracy is required. Angle seat valves are typically used for smaller line sizes and lower pressures, or where reliable tightness is required. Schubert & Salzer valves are CRN- and EAC-certified and approved for potable water. Angle seat valves also comply with EG-norm 1935/2004 for hygienic applications.
For filling and mixing processes for beverages, food products and cleaning processes (CIP/SIP) of related machinery; sanitary instruments and control valves are necessary.
The Schubert & Salzer aseptic right angle control valves as well as angle seat valves and pinch valves are perfectly suitable for the control of liquids and gases in such areas. For shut-off functions for such media the aseptic right angle valves, pinch valves and hygienic versions of the angle seat valves (reduced dead space) are applicable. The latter is also used in KEG cleaning and filling stations.
Stainless valves from stainless steel 1.4408 or 1.4435 can be a supplied with electropolish of less than 0.25 µm (10 Ra) and with industry specific connections which provide cleaning and maintenance versatility.
Positioning is provided by Schubert & Salzer positioners, also with ATEX 94/9/EG approvals till zone 0.
Materials and designs of Schubert & Salzer aseptic valves comply, depending on sealing materials with the stringent requirements of FDA, USP-Class VI- or EHEDG.
