Explosion Proof Sanitary Ball Valves are a type of valve used in applications where flammable and explosive materials are present. These sanitary valves are used in a wide variety of industries for regulating and shutting off process flow, including the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, pet food and utility industries. They are easy to maintain and designed for use in high pressure, temperature, and volume applications. They are available in a full range of sizes and are suitable for use with a variety of flanges.
The explosion-proof sanitary valves consist of a simple design with few moving parts that can be easily disassembled for inspection and maintenance. They are water hammer-safe, allowing axial movement while preventing rotation, and feature durable PTFE valve seats. The floating ball design ensures a tight seal and allows for a wide open/closed position. The valves can be operated manually with a stainless steel handle or equipped with AT series pneumatic actuators for automated operation. The explosion-proof valves have a bonnet with inspection holes for the valve stem and are also easy to disassemble for cleaning.
Electric actuated explosion proof valves have a control unit that has been manufactured in accordance with an explosion-proof standard and is made up of components and cables different from those of ordinary equipment, which helps prevent electric sparks. These sanitary ball valves are suitable for use in flammable and explosive environments with rigorous control requirements.
A typical electrical explosion-proof electric valve is a three-way type that can connect two channels perpendicular to each other or switch the direction of medium flow. They can also be used for diversion, convergence and mixing of a medium in piping systems. Explosion Proof Sanitary Ball Valves
