Alfa Laval LKB Valve
Alfa Laval’s butterfly valve is a straightforward on/off routing valve, with a substantial opening area and low flow resistance. Where hygiene standards are important, this valve is ideal to use with low- and medium-viscosity liquids.
The butterfly valve range has modular units designed to meet the full spectrum of requirements at working pressures, from full vacuum to 10 bar. All valves are FDA-compliant, designed to use in a range of stainless steel pipe systems, and can be built to comply with virtually any installation standard.
This valve can be complemented with a lockable handle for manual operation with an actuator, combined with either a valve indication unit or Alfa Laval ThinkTop valve sensing and control units.
For manual operation, Alfa Laval provides a selection of handles, including a multi-position lockable handle.
For automated operations, different actuators are available; the special double-spring design enables application of maximum torque to the valve disc at breakaway and seal positions. This makes it easy to integrate these valve units into larger systems operated from a central point, and/or to operate them automatically for maximum efficiency. Alfa Laval LKB parts are available.
