Dead weight anti vacuum valves to help safeguard your tanks from implosion
Integrated in a SCANDI BREW® tank top system, the Alfa Laval SB Anti Vacuum Valve is a compact safety valve that minimizes the risk of implosion of tanks when a vacuum condition arises. These conditions occur while filling or emptying the vessel of liquid, cool rinsing after hot-cleaning or caustic cleaning in a CO2 atmosphere. Designed for use in the brewery, dairy, food and beverage industries, it helps optimize the safety, reliability and performance of critical processes and maximize uptime.
The Anti Vacuum Valve is used for minimizing the risk of implosion of tanks exposed to vacuum e.g. during emptying, cool-rinsing after hot-cleaning or caustic cleaning in a CO2 atmosphere. The Anti Vacuum Valve can be applied on any closed tank.
The Anti Vacuum Valve is delivered with counter weight set and locked for an individual opening vacuum to suit the tank design data. When a vacuum in the tank is lower than the preset opening value, the valve opens and lets in atmospheric air.
