SPX Flow Releases Valve for US Dairy Applications
11 October 2019
SPX® FLOW announced that it will be introducing a new valve within its D4 Series double seat mix proof range. The new D4PMO valve has been designed for the US dairy market in line with the latest 3-A sanitary standard 85-02 for Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO).
The D4PMO valve offers dairy businesses a budget-friendly solution to provide reliable processing, excellent cleanability and ease of maintenance. It has a fully balanced design for flexible flow direction without slamming and integrated flow channels for flushing the upper balancer during seat lift movement without the need for full actuation or additional external piping.
The D4PMO is based on the already proven design of the core D4 mix proof range with additional features to meet PMO standards, such as maintaining zero pressure within the vent cavity and the impingement of CIP fluid during seat lift operation.
To manage seat lift detection, the D4PMO valve includes the advanced CU4plus control unit as standard. This unit has an innovative fully integrated position and seat lift detection with internal sensors, which eliminates external wiring to avoid damage during handling or washdown. This smart control unit makes the overall D4PMO solution ideal to meet the high integrity demands of the US dairy market.
The D4PMO is manufactured in the USA, at the SPX FLOW state-of-the-art facility in Delavan, Wisconsin and supported by a close network of sales and service partners across the USA.
