CPMI-2, CPMI-D60 and CPMO-2 are sanitary constant-pressure valves. CPMI-2 and CPMI-D60 (Constant-Pressure Modulating Inlet) maintain a constant pressure in the process line at the inlet side of the valve. Typical applications are after separators, heat exchangers or overflow valves. CPMO-2 (Constant-Pressure Modulating Outlet) maintains a constant pressure in the process line at the outlet side of the valve. Typical applications are before filling/bottling machines etc.
The valves are remote-controlled by means of compressed air. A diaphragm/valve plug system reacts immediately to any alteration of the product pressure and changes position so that the preset pressure is maintained.
The CPMI-2 and CPMO-2 consist of a valve body with valve seat, cover, a valve plug with a diaphragm unit and a clamp. The cover and the valve body are clamped together. The valve body and the seat are welded together. The CPM-I-D60 consists of upper and lower valve bodies, an inlet tube, a cover, a valve plug with diaphragm unit and clamps. The cover and the valve bodies are clamped together.
How It Works
The Alfa Laval SB Pressure Exhaust Valve consists of an AISI 316L stainless steel body, EPDM seals, and fittings for 4/6 mm nylon hoses for set point pressure and force opening. A cleaning nozzle and closing plug for the Cleaning-in-Place (CIP) inlet are also supplied. An optional pneumatic cleaning nozzle is available to replace the closing plug (see Options below). The valve can be used as an integral part of SCANDI BREW® tank top system.
The valve is operated by means of the set point pressure being applied to the top of a membrane set. The pressure regulation will be identical to the set point pressure. The set point pressure is either reduced to the required pressure by means of a manual precision regulator or an IP converter controlled by a PLC.
When the tank pressure exceeds the set point pressure, the valve will open and release pressure through the valve side branch for atmospheric discharge or collection. To ensure correct working conditions, there should be no backpressure after the vent port.
After force-opening of valve by means of an air signal to the lower part of the membrane set, the valve can be effectively cleaned either by using the cleaning nozzle for inline cleaning of the valve at the same time as CIP of the vent/recovery mains takes place, or by using an optional CIP supply valve to connect a Cleaning-in-Place system to the valve housing.
