How is a Clean Valve different from an ordinary bottom outlet valve?

In addition to choosing the right material of construction, another concern when selecting a bottom outlet valve is the housekeeping factor. This is especially true in the case of batch processes that might involve a changeout of product which prohibits cross contamination. Dismantling a valve to ensure thorough cleaning between batches is a lengthy process that can create a considerable amount of unwanted downtime in production, not to mention labor (time and expenses). Our Clean Valve is uniquely designed with an additional side nozzle to allow a cleaning lance to be inserted, enabling the valve to be meticulously cleaned without removing it from service.
