July 12, 2023

Sanitary valves are used in the higher requirements for sanitary grade occasions, in fact, there is no great difference with ordinary valves. Speaking of sanitary valves are the same as ordinary valves, only the use of different occasions, the following is to introduce the difference between it and ordinary industrial valves.

First of all, different materials, because the use of sanitary valves are very high requirements for the use of sanitary environment of pharmaceuticals, food, daily chemical, etc., these products are consumed or directly in contact with the human body, so the production of some of the machinery will be required to have a high level of hygiene conditions. And ordinary valve materials such as steel, iron, copper and other materials can not meet, first of all, steel and iron, these materials as a valve, in the liquid or air with high humidity will corrode and rust, thereby contaminating the product. Copper valves are the same, and copper rust or toxic substances, so it can not be used as sanitary valves.

Sanitary valves are made of stainless steel, stainless steel material has good corrosion resistance, but also non-toxic and tasteless, will not cause contamination of the product. Sanitary valves are generally 304SS or 316 stainless steel, production and processing is completed after special treatment, in many ways are industrial valves can not be compared, such as cleanliness, simple installation, etc., which is specialized in food, medicine and other industries to manufacture the valve. Industrial valves are generally based on the use of the need to develop models, mainly in the high temperature and high pressure working environment, long service life and flexible mode of operation, the appearance and the interior of the valve is not as smooth and beautiful as sanitary, but in many places are sanitary can not be replaced.
