Company: Alfa Laval


Equipment Snapshot: Alfa Laval released the DV-ST UltraPure Actuator that fits the complete range of standard diaphragm valves. It simplifies inventory management and makes the specification process quick, easy and secure. Regardless of the process or application, the same actuator can be stocked as a spare part for all Alfa Laval Unique DV-ST UltraPure diaphragm valves—whether cast, forged or block, and even used for autoclave duties.

The Unique DV-ST UltraPure Actuator withstands high temperatures required for sterilization. It operates at working pressures up to 10 bar (6 bar TFM/EPDM). Unlike many other actuators in the market, it is able to close the valve at the same working pressures at 0 percent pressure drop. As long as the working pressure remains below 10 bar (6 bar TFM/EPDM), the actuator continues to deliver reliable, trouble-free performance. There is no need to change the actuator size or configuration, even if changes in the process line occur.

Alfa Laval sensing and control units can easily be integrated with the Unique DV-ST UltraPure Actuator, and its sensing and control units feature tight tolerance bands to provide maximum process safety and no-touch, set-and-forget sensors with simple set-up. This minimizes human error and promotes safe and efficient production, ensuring more uptime.
