ROYAL UNIBREW SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
NEED SPECIALIZED VALVES
Previously, the handling of wort gave Royal Unibrew extensive challenges. The 90-100°C high temperatures to wort caused damage to the Butterfly Valves’ rubber lining, and resulted in leakage.
Working closely together with the Technical Division of Royal Unibrew, AVK Flow Control
succeeded in finding a solution that met their requirements.
The butterfly valve called ”Bianca” from InterApp (part of the AVK Group) was the chosen solution. The valve is lined with PTFE (teflon) with EPDM backup, and has an acidresistant stainless steel disc 1.4408. The valve is operated by a pneumatic actuator, which AVK Flow Control also delivered.
The valve works perfectly, and the challenges with high temperature are solved. Royal Unibrew is very satified with the solution and the process.
AVK Flow Control has the Danish DVFA’s approval according to EU1935 – 2004, so all our valves can be used in the Food Manufacturing Sector. AVK Flow Control also delivers rubber materials according to FDA.
Centric Butterfly Valve ”Bianca”
Body in ductile iron. Shaft and disc in stainless steel, PFA lined. Liner in PTFE. Manually pneumatically or electrically operated.
