Safeguard the integrity of your processing fluids with the Alfa Laval LKB UltraPure, a hygienic butterfly valve for high-purity applications. This inline shutoff valve, with its substantial opening area, promotes the free flow of low- and medium-viscosity fluids through piping systems. Suitable for the homecare, personal care, pharmaceutical and many other industries, it enhances product safety and system performance and increases production uptime.
Safe, efficient flow of high-purity, low- and medium-viscosity fluids through piping systems
- Ensure high-efficiency flow of low and medium-viscosity products
- Maximize uptime thanks to fast, economical maintenance
- Mitigate safety risks due to the Alfa Laval Q-doc documentation package for full transparency of sourcing, production and supply chains
- Minimize installation time and space with easy inline mounting and straightforward piping connections
- Meet current Good Manufacturing Practices and special requirements for surface finishes, material traceability and elastomers
Let the Alfa Laval LKB UltraPure butterfly valve efficiently route high-purity fluids through piping systems without compromising product quality. Fluids flow easily through the low restriction valve due to high Kv values. Like all Alfa Laval UltraPure products, this hygienic inline butterfly valve simplifies validation procedures and provides total peace of mind due to the Alfa Laval Q-doc documentation package. Maintenance is effortless; only a single wear part requires replacement at scheduled service intervals.
Optional valve sensing and control units enable quick auto setup and unmatched control of processing lines. Use the LKB UltraPure in combination with the Alfa Laval ThinkTop V50 and V70 pulse seat clean function to reduce energy, water and cleaning media costs further.
How it works
The Alfa Laval LKB UltraPure butterfly valve operates using either a manual quarter-turn handle or a pneumatic actuator from a remote location. The actuator comes in three standard versions: normally closed (NC), normally open (NO), and air/air activated (A/A).
For manual operation, a handle mechanically locks the valve in an open or closed position. Two-position, four-position, regulating 90°-position, and multi-position handles are available. Manual valves can also be mounted with indication units for feedback on the valve position (open/closed).
For pneumatic operation, an actuator converts axial piston motion into a 90° rotation of the shaft. The actuator torque increases as the valve disc comes into contact with the butterfly valve’s seal ring and secures proper closing of the valve seat.
