The hygienic AWH safety valve, the latest product in the AWH valve portfolio, reliably protects tanks and piping systems
The hygienic AWH safety valve, the latest product in the AWH valve portfolio, reliably protects tanks and piping systems against overpressure when all automatic regulating, control and monitoring systems have failed. Mechanically loaded safety valves are indispensable for the secondary protection of your systems, because they open reliably without adding any auxiliary energy.
The minimal dead space design offers the greatest possible protection against contamination in the areas that come into contact with the product and those that do not. The valve with its properties is therefore suitable for the food, beverage, bio-pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.
The mechanics of the new spring-loaded valve are mounted on the inside, above the diaphragm. This protects all moving components from contamination. Thanks to the special, standard lifting mechanism, the valve cannot be accidentally blocked. All components in contact with the product are made of high-quality stainless steel 1.4404 (316L). The safety valve is factory set and sealed.
