How do Mixproof valves work?
A mixproof valve has two seats within the valve versus the traditional single seat. This allows for fluid separation. In the case of a leak, there is an exit area between the two seats. This creates a positive method for preventing the two different fluids from contaminating one another.
What is a single seat valve?
Sanitary single seated valves are a type of globe valves used to shut off or change the direction of fluid flow in high-pressure applications. They are preferred because of their simple design: a movable disc-type element with unique designed seat is maneuvered to seal the port on well treated body.
Why are butterfly valves used?
Butterfly valves are used where space is limited. Unlike gate valves, butterfly valves can be used for throttling or regulating flow as well as in the full open and fully closed position. The pressure loss through a butterfly valve is small in comparison with the gate valve.
What is the difference between a ball valve and a butterfly valve?
Ball valves provide a tight seal. The butterfly valve disc restricts the flow by creating a large pressure drop. Ball valves have less pressure drop as compared to butterfly valves. Suitable for modulating and ON/OFF Control.
Can you control flow with a butterfly valve?
Unlike gate valves, butterfly valves can be used for throttling or regulating flow as well as in the full open and fully closed position. The pressure loss through a butterfly valve is small in comparison with the gate valve.
What is the symbol for butterfly valve?
Butterfly valve symbol is the only symbol where a full triangle is not used. If you refer to the first symbol, it is similar to a globe valve but a triangle is not full. The alternative symbol is clearer in this case. For isometric symbols, you can see that there is no socket end butterfly valve.

What is the control air pressure of the mixproof butterfly valves?
The control air pressure is min. 4.8 bar, max. 8 bar. For lower control air pressure, a booster cylinder can be applied. The quality of the control air must comply with the requirements acc. to ISO 8573-1:2010: Actuator selection The modular concept of the Mixproof Butterfly Valves T-smart 9 allows for a variety of actuator variants to be fitted.
What is a mixproof valve?
Mixproof valves are a great solution for large-scale beverage or food production facilities looking to automate and combine systems without risking cross-contamination of fluids. In this post, I’ll review the basics of mixproof valves.
